product design
Agilent BioTek Epoch microplate spectrophotometer has monochromator-based optics, for a filter-free, wide wavelength range for UV-Vis absorbance measurements. These measurements can be done in many microplate formats and in 2 µL samples, when the available Agilent BioTek Take3 microvolume plate is used. BioTek Epoch is controlled with the Agilent BioTek Gen5 software interface, with simple programming and powerful data analysis. This robust, low maintenance microplate absorbance reader is a cost-effective system. Reliability and ease of use ensure time savings in laboratory workflows.

Features

Simple and easy operation 

Simple and easy operation

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

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

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

Compatibility with a wide range of microplates and vessels

By extending reading capabilities to the Take3 or Take3 Trio plates, in addition to microplates ranging from 6– to 384–well format, the Epoch can measure absorbance values from samples in the single microliter, tens of microliters, or hundereds of microliters total volume.
