The 800 TS Absorbance Reader is an affordable, high quality microplate reader for assays in 6- to 384-well formats. The color touchscreen provides a visual user interface, making programming simple. The onboard software includes “quick read” and custom protocols, with data viewed immediately after measure, followed by export to USB or to the compact printer. The software stores a history of programmed assays and recent plate readings for instant recall. The 800 TS can be configured to include temperature control and shaking, ideal for assays like short- or long-term kinetics, enabled under computer control via Gen5 Software. The 800 TS, used alongside the 50 TS Washer, makes an affordable system to automate many application workflows, including immunoassays, cytotoxicity, enzyme assays, cell-based assays and more.
