SPECTROstar OMEGA

Product Details

Ultra-fast UV/Vis spectrum absorbance spectrometer - upgradeable to a multi-mode microtiter plate reader

The SPECTROstar® Omega is a dedicated absorbance microplate reader that can capture a full absorbance spectrum (220 - 1000 nm) in less than 1 second per well – no scanning needed. This upgradeable reader offers the highest flexibility for optimizing settings for all absorbance-based assays. The LVis Plate compatibility allows for low volume sample measurements.

The ultra-fast, dedicated absorbance microplate reader.

Details

The SPECTROstar Omega is a dedicated absorbance microplate reader that can capture either a full-absorbance spectrum or up to eight discrete wavelengths simultaneously. Upgrades can transform SPECTROstar Omega into a powerful multi-mode reader with up to six detection modes, Simultaneous Dual Emission, injectors, and an Atmospheric Control Unit (ACU)

Features

  • Full-spectrum UV/Vis absorbance measurements in less than 1 second
  • Measurement in up to 1536-well microplate format
  • Plate shaking and uniform incubation up to 45 °C or 65 °C
  • Well-scanning and real-time kinetic monitoring
  • High-precision injectors with simultaneous reagent injection and detection
  • Includes multi-user control and MARS data analysis software
  • Compatible with LVis Plate for low volume samples (down to 2µl)
  • ACU and stacker compatible

Reagent Injection

Up to 2 built-in reagent injectors
Injection at measurement position (6 to 384-well)
Individual injection volumes for each well (3 to 500 µL)
Variable injection speed up to 420 µL / s
Up to four injection events per well
Reagent back flushing

Shaking

Purge Gas Vent

System to inject an atmosphere or to pull a vacuum into the reader

Incubation

+4 °C above ambient up to 45 °C or 65 °C

The upper heating plate of the incubation chamber operates at 0.5 °C more than the lower plate. This prevents condensation build-up on the lid or sealer.
