Instrument Description and Capabilities:  

The SPECTRAFLUOR is a fully automatic, computer controlled Fluorescence and Absorbance instrument for measuring samples in a microplate. The instrument fulfills the requirements for numerous fluorescence and absorbance applications in research and routine investigations.

  • Fluorescence (VIS range)
  • Time Resolved Fluorescence TRF
  • Fluorescence Intensity top and bottom capabilities FI
  • Fluorescence Resonanace Energy Transfer FRET
  • User choice of Fluorescence filters included
  • Absorbance reading mode (UV and VIS range)
  • User choice of Absorbance filter included
  • Temperature control and microplate-shaking included
  • Adjustable bandwidth range
  • 6-384-well plate capability

The filters are arranged in filter slides; four excitation filters and four emission filters respectively as noted below. Handles 6, 24, 96, 384 and 1536 well plates.
Spectral range 360-700nm for fluorescence.
Spectral range 230-750nm for absorbance.
3pg fluorescein/ well or 8 fmol well. The emission signal is measured by a highly sensitive PMT.
Different detection techniques with one instrument change of measurement directions (top to bottom, bottom to top) by PC software.  Thermal incubation at 
+5º C to + 40º C.

Dual optical channels allow measurements from above or below the plate by mouse-click. Light to and from the samples is focused by a lens and high quality excitation and emission filters are easily accessible from the front of the instrument. Each filter slide holds up to four filters with eight filters onboard for fluorescence. Orbital shaking and temperature control are standard.

Suggested use with black clear bottomed plates for bottom-to-top readings. Optimal use with black plates prevent cross-contamination.
