LogPhase 600 Microbiology Reader

Overview:

The LogPhase™ 600 Microbiology Reader is in a class of its own, designed for measuring microbial growth curves in up to four standard 96-well microplates at a time.  LogPhase 600 features purpose-built, robust shaking and consistent temperature control, which are critical to optimal bacteria and yeast cell growth, for the best data quality. LogPhase 600 is controlled with a software App that provides a simple, yet powerful, user experience. The LogPhase App controls the reader to acquire data and perform microbiology-focused analysis for all plates.
 


Features:

RED BOX  Only 4-plate microplate reader on the market

Only 4-plate microplate reader on the market
LogPhase 600 is the only 4-plate microplate reader on the market. You no longer need multiple instruments, multiple PC’s and vast amounts of bench space for your microbial growth assays.
 

RED BOX  Keep your cells in suspension for optimal growth

Keep your cells in solution for optimal growth
LogPhase 600 has a shaking mechanism designed specifically for microbiological growth assays – its robust and superior shaking ensures your cells will not settle, even during long term kinetic assays.
 

RED BOX  Condensation and evaporation control

Condensation and evaporation control
Condensation on the sealed plates can cause light scatter and reading artifacts. The LogPhase 600 has Condensation Control™ with a temperature gradient from the top to the bottom of the plate, to prevent condensation and evaporation.
 

RED BOX  Consistent growth conditions = consistent data

Consistent growth conditions = consistent data
Other systems can develop growth curve artifacts over time due to inconsistent shaking and growth conditions. LogPhase 600 provides the most consistent growth conditions for microbial growth assays on the market.
 

RED BOX  Easy to use and powerful targeted app

Easy to use and powerful targeted app
The LogPhase 600 App provides an easy to use interface with analysis tools designed for microbial growth researchers. New users can be up and running in minutes with very little training. Multi-plate data can be viewed on the screen at the same time.
