The Epoch microplate spectrophotometer offers simple assay setup, read, and data visualization. Qualitative and quantitative colorimetric assays are supported, while preprogrammed protocols in Gen6 make use of the system, from plate read to results output.
Tunable wavelength selection and xenon light source
Epoch offers flexible, filter-free, monochromator-based absorbance detection. Multiple wavelength reads can easily be programmed using Gen6 software, to handle assays requiring one or more target or reference wavelengths to be read for proper data analysis. The high-quality xenon flash lamp and optical system enable a long lifetime of measurements to be taken in the UV and visible spectral range.
Microvolume detection with the Take3 plate
Take3 plates expand Epoch’s capabilities to very small (2 μL) sample volumes for direct DNA, RNA, and protein quantification of precious samples. Get rapid results for up to 48 samples at a time, without investing in additional instrumentation.
Compatibility with a wide range of microplates and vessels
Advanced absorbance reading capabilities available
Walkaway processing using available BioStack compatible configurations
To automate read processes for multiple plates, a robot-friendly configuration of Epoch interfaces with the BioStack microplate stacker. Process 10, 30, or 50 microplates automatically and efficiently, freeing you for other tasks.
