University of Texas wins Spectrostar Nano
To address its need for a new absorbance microplate reader for teaching and in its labs, researchers at the University of Texas at Arlington applied for BMG Labtech's Spectrostar Nano competition.
The professors have no been announced the second winners of a Spectrostar Nano from BMG Labtech.
Combining its ideas into one proposal helped to mitigate the risk of submitting just one idea and it also helped to show how six different laboratories can use one instrument for a myriad of applications.
Fast, full-spectrum measurements will redefine the most common absorbance assays such as ELISAs, DNA, RNA, Protein (Bradford, BCA, Lowry), cell growth and beta-galactosidase.
Features include: full UV/Vis spectrum per well, gas vent for atmospheric control, 1,536-well-plate reading capability, incubation and shaking, reference corrections to improve data, cuvette and plate kinetics, BMG Labtech's low-volume LVis Plate, or robotic interface mode.
The POLARstar microplate reader has been used by German researchers to study the effects of gravity fluctuations on plants.
The SoPRano assay platform can work on all BMG microplate readers that have a CCD spectrometer.
BMG Labtech has introduced the Atmospheric Control Unit (ACU), which provides regulated, independent control of both oxygen (O2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) levels within a multimode microplate reader.
Microplate reader specialist BMG Labtech has introduced a website optimised for mobile devices, developed specifically for users of smartphones and other wireless devices.
BMG Labtech is offering customers the opportunity to win one of five free Spectrostar Nano absorbance microplate readers.
