FL 600 Multifunction Fluorescence and Absorbance Microplate Reader
Equipped with UV-VIS Fluorescence and Absorbance Reader
 for top- and bottom- read assays

Instrument Description:

The Bio-Tek FL600 is a Absorbance and Fluorescence instrument for measuring samples in various microplates. This Reader fulfills requirements for numerous fluorescence and absorbance applications in research and routine investigations.

The Fluorescence filters are arranged in filter wheels; four excitation filters and four emission filters respectively as noted below in a 6 place filter wheel. Handles 6, 48, 96, and 384 well plates. With the wavelength range of 360-750nm fluorescence spectral range.
The absorbance wavelength range of 340-750nm with your choice of filters covers the full spectral range. PC software includes various methods of data capture, including kinetic readings and end point. Standard reads and data can be downloaded into Excel for further curve fits and specified data to meet assay requirements. Sensitivities can be two and to three times more sensitive than specified by use of PC software. Different detection techniques with one instrument change of measurement directions (top / bottom) by PC software.  Thermal incubation at 
+5º C to + 42º C, with 3 settings for shake-High 25Hz, Medium-17Hz and Low 12.5Hz. 
Dual optical channels allow measurements from above or below the plate by mouse-click. Light to and from the samples is focused by a lens and high quality excitation and emission filters are easily accessible and can be reconfigured to meet dozens of application requirements.  Each filter wheel holds up to six filters with eight filters installed for fluorescence readings to total twelve filter positions.  Six filters for absorbance can be accommodated.  Suggested use with black clear bottomed plates for bottom-to-top readings. Optimal use with black plates to prevent cross-contamination.
Easily reset to 220 Volt.

Bio-tek ELx405 96 and 96/384 Well Plate Washers Remanufactured

ELX 405ELx 405 96, 96 UV, Magna and  96/384 Well Full Plate Washer. Bio Stack multiple plate processing available. The ELx405 is precise, fast and easy to use -- with its own innovative features (keypad display). Providing independent control of both dispense and aspirate manifolds for precise overfill washing and overflow protection in both 96- and 384-well microplates (flat and round) (96/384 model). This unique design washes both 96- and 384-well plates without the need for any hardware changes. With its slanted dispense tubes, full control of dispense and aspiration rates and unique x, y, z positioning, the ELx405 is ideal for cell-based applications too.
For those applications that use only 96-well microplates, the ELx405 Auto Plate Washer is an ideal choice for performance and value!  Many unique features lower background absorbance values and increase the signal-to-noise ratio of typical ELISA assays. 

Hardware:

  • Independent control of the aspirate and dispense manifolds for precise overfill washing and overflow protection
  • Internal positive displacement pump eliminates the use of troublesome pressure delivery systems and allows the use of any size dispense reservoir
  • Built-in priming trough allows automatic manifold priming and rinsing during both operation and maintenance modes and eliminates the need for "blank" plates when used in automated robotic systems
  • Fully variable dispense volumes, flow, and aspiration rates provide "total control" of the washing cycles from a gentle cell-washing application to vigorous wash for high-binding assays
  • Built-in fluid flow, fluid detection, and vacuum sensing provide complete protection for unattended operation
  • Optional external valve module connects four reagent bottles with automatic switching between reagents (included on some models)

 Software:

  • 75 programs
  • Link up to 10 programs
  • Precision ≤4% CV, when dispensing 300μL well
  • Pre/Auto Prime volume 1-999mL
  • 1-10 cycles/wash
  • Crosswise aspiration well
  • Fully programmable:
    • dispense height
    • aspiration height
    • aspiration delay
    • soak 1-600 seconds
    • shake and shake intensity 1-600 seconds
    • aspiration rate
    • horizontal aspirate and dispense position
  • External programming/downloading available through RS-232 port  

    A really great plate washer that comes with fifteen month warranty, line cord, manual and six days a week technical support for all remanufactured models. Complete system includes pump and 4 liter reservoirs. All connections are color coded for easy user set up.
