The FlexStation 3 Benchtop Multi-Mode Microplate Reader is a 5-mode micro plate reader with outstanding flexibility. It addresses a wide range of biochemical- and cell-based applications, while meeting all assay throughput requirements.
Combining Molecular Devices’ SpectraMx M5e Multi-Mode Microplate Reader performance with an integrated 8- or 16-channel pipettor in one compact bench top reader, the FlexStation 3 is highly efficient.
The monochromator optics are tunable for absorbance, fluorescence intensity, fluorescence polarisation and time-resolved fluorescence assays, and the micro plate reader also has a dedicated photomultiplier for luminescence assays.
Scientists can configure the FlexStation 3 according to their requirements. Users can choose from 96- or 384-well pipetting, or both, and once installed the pipettors can be changed without tools in just a few minutes. This flexibility also extends to the ability to define individual reagents and concentrations to be delivered to each column.
Direct liquid transfer reduces reagent consumption and allows more assay conditions to be assessed in a single micro plate, and multiple additions are also allowed, meaning secondary controls can be added to each well. Trituration also improves assays.
Several key technologies are used to ensure optimal sensitivity for all modes, including dual monochromators, dual photomultiplier tubes (PMTs), auto PMT optimisation, reference diodes and top-quality UV grade fibres.
The FlexStation 3 Microplate Reader is supplied with SoftMax Pro Data Acquisition & Analysis Software. This industry-leading program from Molecular Devices offers an extensive library of application protocols, optional tools, advanced calculations and seamless data exchange and integration between operating systems and LIMS platforms.
This wide range of features and the flexibility they offer makes the micro plate reader ideal for many assay categories, such as membrane potential assays, DNA/RNA quantitation, enzyme kinetics, cytotoxicity assays and membrane permeability.
