Features

Cost-effective monochromator-based absorbance

 
Epoch
Epoch is a fantastic value, offering filter-free absorbance with high quality optics and robust hardware. It reads microplates in 6- to 384-well format, quickly, efficiently and with great performance.

 

200 to 999 nm for UV-Vis applications

Nucleic acid and protein quantification in microplates is fast and easy, with Epoch’s monochromator wavelength selection and Gen5 software’s automated pathlength correction. Qualitative and quantitative colorimetric assays are supported, and pre-programmed protocols in Gen5 make it super simple, from plate read to results output.
Mono system

 

Micro-volume detection with the Take3 plate

 
Take3
The Take3 Micro-volume plates expand Epoch’s capabilities to very small, 2 µL sample volumes for direct DNA, RNA and protein quantification. Get rapid results for up to 48 samples at a time, without investing in additional instrumentation.

 

Wavelength scanning, endpoint, and kinetics

Epoch can measure absorbance in 6- to 384- well plates in endpoint, kinetic and spectral scan reading modes. Gen5 immediate displays the raw and calculated data, plus standard curves and spectral scans.
