Micro-volume quantification is fast and easy with the Take3 and Take3 Trio Micro-Volume plates, used in your BioTek microplate spectrophotometer. Measure up to forty-eight 2 µL samples at a time, without diluting and without needing specialized equipment. For added utility, standard cuvettes or the patented BioCell can also be used for quick 1 cm measurements, while the ultimate versatility of measuring both absorbance and fluorescence can be accomplished using Take3 or Take3 Trio in a Synergy Hybrid or multi-mode reader. Pre-programmed nucleic acid and protein protocols in Gen5 make quantification fast and easy.


Take3 and Take3 Trio are compatible with Epoch and Epoch 2, Synergy multi-mode and Hybrid readers. Adding a Take3 Micro-Volume plate to your BioTek microplate spectrophotometer systems greatly expands the functionality while reducing sample volumes, costs and time required for routine quantification.
