Microplate readers, multi-mode, FilterMax™ F3 and F5

Supplier: Molecular Devices
The FilterMax™ series of multi-mode microplate readers can be operated as standalone instruments or can be integrated seamlessly with laboratory automation platforms. Both units are ideal for a broad range of applications, including drug discovery, genomics, proteomics and cell-based research. The patented design ensures precise performance and sensitivity across all detection modes. Units can use either automated or manual Z-Height Optimisation, and can utlise high-density well scanning for unique applications.

  • Performance driven specifications for sensitivity, dynamic range, accuracy, precision and linearity
  • 3 or 5 modes of detection
  • Automatic z-height optimisation (top read) (FilterMax™ F5 only)
  • Filter based multi-mode
  • Up to 384-well format
  • Optimised light source for a specific dye or application

The FilterMax™ F3 offers visible-wavelength absorbance, top-reading fluorescence intensity, and glow luminescence modes for programmable endpoint, kinetic, multiple-wavelength linear scan and area scan measurements in 96- to 384-well plates. Easily accessible filter slides allow wavelength selection options from 340 nm to 650 nm.

The FilterMax™ F5 features absorbance (UV and visible), fluorescence intensity – FI (top and bottom reading), glow luminescence, fluorescence polarisation (FP), and time-resolved fluorescence (TRF) for 6- to 1536-well plates. In addition, the instrument features linear and orbital shaking, plus temperature control. Users can program endpoint, kinetic, multiple wavelength, linear scan, and area scan measurement types. Easily accessible six-position filter slides enable wavelength selection from 230 to 700 nm.

Delivery information: Instrument includes excitation filter slide (absorbance: 405 nm, 450 nm, 492 nm, 620 nm; fluorescence: 360 nm, 485 nm), emission filter slide (fluorescence: 465 nm, 535 nm), SoftMax® Pro microplate data acquisition and analysis software, power cable, RS-232 serial cable, and user guide.
