Model: Fluostar Optima

Fluorstar Optima Plate Reader. Microplate Readers (Also Known As Plate Readers) Are Laboratory Instruments Designed To Detect Biological, Chemical Or Physical Events Of Samples In Microtiter Plates. They Are Widely Used In Research, Drug Discovery, Bioassay Validation, Quality Control And Manufacturing Processes In The Pharmaceutical And Biotechnological Industry And Academic Organizations. Sample Reactions Can Be Assayed In 6-1536 Well Format Microtiter Plates. The Most Common Microplate Format Used In Academic Research Laboratories Or Clinical Diagnostic Laboratories Is 96-Well (8 By 12 Matrix) With A Typical Reaction Volume Between 100 And 200 µl Per Well. Higher Density Microplates (384- Or 1536-Well Microplates) Are Typically Used For Screening Applications, When Throughput (Number Of Samples Per Day Processed) And Assay Cost Per Sample Become Critical Parameters, With A Typical Assay Volume Between 5 And 50 µl Per Well. Common Detection Modes For Microplate Assays Are Absorbance, Fluorescence Intensity, Luminescence, Time-Resolved Fluorescence, And Fluorescence Polarization.To Discover More And Discuss Access To This Piece Of Equipment, Please Liaise With The Research And Facilities Manager (Details Below).
