The top-reading Gemini XPS Microplate Reader with dual monochromators lets you experiment with a variety of fluorophores and can even find the best excitation and emission wavelengths for your new assays.  Multiple-point well scanning optimizes cell-based assay sensitivity. The Molecular Devices SpectraMax XPS has an optical design that is the only multi-channel system that truly mimics a dual-beam spectrophotometer. Each sample has a discrete sample beam and reference beam so that each well is measured directly. The eight-channel system- consisting of 8 sample beams and 8 reference beams delivers both superior precision and speed of reading across the microplate. Up to 96 assays can be run at one time and users can perform spectral scans from 250 nm to 750 nm. Microplate data analysis software provides built in spreadsheet capabilities for easy data analysis. Eliminate the need for identifying, purchasing, and changing out filters for wavelength optimization with dual monochromators for excitation and emission wavelength selection between 250 and 850 nm.
