Microplate Instrumentation

Halo MPR-96

The MPR-96 Microplate Reader extends the Halo range to facilitate higher throughput analyses of experiments consisting of an array of micro-volume reactions typically in a 96 well plate format. Naturally the MPR-96 features the same ruggedness, reliability, precision and reproducibility synonymous with the Halo family.

 

Superior Performance
The Halo MPR-96 boasts a market leading absorbance range between 0 – 4 OD which is further complemented by linearity of ±1% up to 2.5 OD (405nm). The excellent measurement uniformity across all wells is matched by an intra and inter-plate variation of ±0.010 OD (405nm, 0-2 OD) for maximum accuracy and reproducibility. Other specifications include 8 measurement channels and 1 reference channel to expedite processing coupled with a swift read time of 10 seconds per 96 wells thus ensuring reliable data during kinetic analyses. An optional calibration plate can also be employed to certify various regulatory compliances or validate other practices such as precision assurance.

 

Exceptional Wavelength Range
The flexible filter based system allows for measurements within a spectrum range from 400nm through to a maximum of 750nm. Model MPR-96UV extends the measurement to 340nm UV range. Additionally, the large selection of interference filters caters for the most common and critical wavelengths. Up to 5 interference filters can be mounted on the carousel which is easily accessible for effortless and quick replacement of filters if the need arises.

Versatile by Nature
The exceptional capability of the Halo MPR-96 imparts the flexibility to perform the simplest of functions such as the generation of raw data and qualitative evaluations through to more complex functions involving kinetics and curve fits (select from linear, point to point, quadric, cubic or logistic types). The Halo MPR-96 accepts 96 well microplates in flat bottom as well as U and V shaped configurations. The unit can also be automated for high throughput by integrating compatible robotic handling systems.

 

Diverse Range of Measurement
Modes Select from ‘Fast’ mode when quick measurement is required (for example screening applications) to ‘Accurate’ mode when high resolution is necessary.
Other modes include:

• ‘Centre Measurement’ to detect small samples with a non-linear surface.
• Single or dual wavelengths.
• Plate shaking (4 speeds, linear motion) before measurement or in-between cycles (for example during kinetic analyses).
