ThermoFisher Scientific Fluoroskan Ascent Fluorescence
96/384 Well Plate Reader model with or without injector(s)
Equipped with UV-VIS Fluorescence with three year warranty $7,995.

All new filters, parts and 3 year warranty!


Instrument Description and Capabilities:

  • State-of-the-art optical system for unrivalled sensitivity
  • Highly-visual Ascent Software simplifies fluorometric applications 
  • Flexible plate formats, from 6 to 96 wells and 6 to 384 wells, enable reading in primary wells
  • Reads from above or above the plate all models
  • Filters installed 355/485nm (or your choice)
  • Precise temperature control provides optimum conditions for cell biology and enzyme assays (various models)
  • Variable speed orbital shaker for true mixing
  • Superior quality, current model manufactured in Finland since the 1980's
  • Easily reset to 220 Voltage

The direct illumination optics of the Fluoroskan Ascent produces a highly focused light beam. In fluorescence measurement, this prevents crosstalk and ensures accurate readings. Two beam diameter settings, 3 mm and 1.5 mm, allow optimal readings of 96 well plates. Automatic gain selection eliminates the need for manual adjustment in fluorometry. It also guarantees the best possible sensitivity and dynamic range for all wavelengths.

On-board incubation and orbital shaking (various models)

An incubator is onboard for cell biology, enzyme assays and other applications requiring precise temperature control.

Built-in orbital shaking up to 99 hours, 99 minutes and 99 seconds, another advanced feature, speeds up reaction times and ensures effective mixing. Both the speed and amplitude of shaking can be adjusted. Frequency from 1 - 50 mm diameter.

Instruments come with filter pairs, line cord and three year warranty from Factory Trained Engineers.  Additional filter pairs can be purchased.  MTX Lab Systems, Inc. has sold and serviced these instruments since 1990's!
