Instrument Description and Capabilities:

The Finstruments® Fluoroskan Filter Based Fluorescence Microplate Reader is an advanced 96 well microplate fluorometer. It is built to the highest specifications and can be used in the most discriminating research or clinical laboratory. Common tests include those used in newborn screening, determination of TSH, T4, phenylalanine, galactose, and biotinidase deficiency. Immunological, microbiological, biochemical and enzyme activity measurement can be performed with precision with this model. Fluorescence light is measured at a narrow angle; the excitation light source and the detector of the emission light are both located above the microplate. Filters are held in both the emission and excitation filter wheels. There are 4 positions on each filter wheel to offer the researcher a great deal of flexibility. The Finstruments Fluoroskan Fluorescent Microplate Reader is designed to read fluorescences from black or opaque fluorplates. In certain cases, transparent plates may be used.

The measured values can be read directly from the 16 character alphanumeric digital display. Extensive built-in software makes this a capable stand-alone instrument for the lab on a budget, however, simple, easy-to-use software Spectrosoft PC is available for purchase to greatly facilitate data collection and analysis. 

Instrument performance includes different operations such as calculation selection, several blanking possibilities, measurement time selection, and temperature selection with Spectrosoft PC Software or use standard PC software (included) download into excel.
