The Accuris SmartReader™ 96 is ideal for any lab routinely measuring concentration or absorbance in 96-well plates. A 7" color touch screen, intuitive software, and graphical interface makes it easy to use as a stand-alone instrument (computer connection and additional software not required).
The SmartReader™ 96 comes complete with 4 popular filters (405, 450, 492, 630nm); 26 additional filters are available to cover a full range from 340 to 750nm. The integrated filter wheel allows up to 8 filters to be loaded at once, and filters can be selected during programming. Up to 2 filters can be used for 2 measurements of the sample plate for calculated comparisons. Kinetic calculations can be performed by setting multiple readings.
Use the touch screen, or connect a mouse for programming and operation. The menu interface allows the user to choose the wavelength filter, set shaking parameters, enter details of the plate layout, and also choose the details for the reading protocol and data calculations.
The SmartReader™ 96 is a convenient stand alone reader—all software and the programming system is incorporated into the electronics. However, a convenient USB port on the side allows quick and easy saving of data files to a USB drive, and the universal .csv files can then be shared or transferred to a computer for storage or further processing. A data port can be used for connecting a computer or basic printer.
The plate layout interface allows for quick and intuitive set up of a plate's well contents. The display shows a graphical representation of the 96 well plate, and the user can label each well as required for: "known standard," "unknown sample," "blank well," "QC control well," "negative control," "positive control," or "empty." The interface allows highlighting and labeling multiple wells to save time.
