Monochromator technology … no filters needed

The monochromator-based optical system allows for precise selection of wavelengths from 200nm to 1000nm, with no filters required. This range makes the SmartReader UV-Vis™ useful not only for typical ELISA , Bradford Lowry, and turbidity assays but also for more advanced applications such as quantitation of nucleic acids and proteins. The SmartReader™ UV-Vis can be set for Endpoint, Kinetic and Spectral Scanning assays.

High Throughput Capability

The MR9610 is designed for efficient processing of multiple samples and
accepts standard 96 well plates as well as 384 well plates for high density
screening. The plate layout interface allows for a quick and intuitive setup of a plate well’s contents. Users can highlight and label multiple wells to save time. The display shows a graphical representation of the plate. Users can label each well as required for: “known standard”, “unknown sample”, “blank well” , “QC Control well”, “positive control”, “negative control”, and “empty”.

Optimized results with plate shaking and incubation

Controllable plate shaking and incubation allow for optimization of assay results. The shaking speed can be controlled at different intensities with options for timed and pulsed shaking before a reading, or in between readings when performing a kinetic assay. The linear motion efficiently and uniformly mixes all samples in both 96 and 384 well plates. Temperature can be controlled from ambient +5⁰C up to 45⁰C, allowing for the processing of enzyme kinetics, and bacterial growth assays.

SmartDrop™ Accessory Plate

Absorbance measurements of exceptionally small volumes (<0.5ul) can be achieved using the SmartDrop™ Accessory Plate. The SmartDrop™ plate accommodates up to 16 samples and is ideal for checking nucleic acid concentrations and purity for Next Gen Sequencing, or protein concentrations.
