Epoch Microplate Spectrophotometer
BioTek spectrophotometers offer the ability to perform conventional EIAs at virtually any wavelength, quantitative nucleic acids in the low UV range, or automatically run spectral scans for peak absorbance measurements without using filters. Epoch offers your lab a compact, versatile solution. The Epoch can even perform low volume (2 µL) nucleic acid and protein quantificiaiton as well as conventional 1 cm measurements with the Take3 Micro-Volume Plate.
For laboratories looking for advanced microplate detection capabilities, the Epoch is an innovative microplate spectrophotometer with a high-powered xenon flash lamp, tunable monochromator and low UV capability. Epoch can read 6-, 12-, 24-, 48-, 96-, and 384-well microplates as well as the Take3 Micro-Volume Plate for low volume or 1 cm measurements with BioCell or standard cuvettes. Process a diverse range of applications such as nucleic acid quantitation, A260/A280 ratios, pathlength correction, basic ELISAs, protein analysis, and much more with the powerful Gen5 Data Analysis Software. The Epoch is your lab's low-cost solution for unlimited applications.
Eon Microplate Spectrophotometer
The new Eon Microplate Spectrophotometer is the latest in BioTek’s line of high performance, high value microplate instruments. With its monochromator-based optics, extended incubation range, optimized shaking capability, and optional cuvette port, Eon accommodates a wide range of assay applications in the life science laboratory, from DNA, RNA and protein quantification to long running kinetic assays. The Eon can even perform low volume (2 µL) nucleic acid and protein quantificiaiton as well as conventional 1 cm measurements with the Take3 Micro-Volume Plate.
Experts in the field of automation consulted on the design of the PowerWave HT and have given their advice on the three critical aspects of an automated system's efficiency, size, speed and performance. The result is the first microplate spectrophotometer designed to run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Endpoint, kinetic, and spectral scanning are just some of the applications available to both models. From the PowerWave HT you can expect direct DNA quantitation and purity testing, RNA quantitation, and visible range measurements for basic ELISAs, enzyme kinetics, colorimetric assays, and much more.
