Ideal for high throughput ligand binding experiments
BioTek has been granted US patent 9,557,217 for imaging and microplate reading in one instrument.
The researchers fabricated plastic sheets the same size as the traditional microplates, but instead of wells, they dotted them with 1-millimeter tall pillars
At SLAS2015, the 4th Annual Conference and Exhibition of the Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening, attendees got to check out a particularly versatile multimode microplate reader.
The custom technologies arm of Molecular Devices, a leader in bioanalytical systems for drug discovery, life science research, and bioassay development, has partnered with the Discovery Technologies team at the Roche Innovation Center Basel of Pharma Research and Early Development (pRED) to develop a high-throughput detection system for drug discovery screens employing Roche’s proprietary Ruthenium-based nanosecond time resolved fluorescence (Nano-TRF®) assays. The pRED screening teams in Basel and Shanghai are now installing the custom-developed Nano-TRF® cartridge in their existing Molecular Devices SpectraMax® Paradigm® multimode microplate readers and will receive on-demand delivery of new cartridges and continuing global technical support.
Scientists at the Houston Methodist Research Institute have figured out how to pick up and transfer single cells using a pipette–a common laboratory tool that's been tweaked slightly. They describe this engineering feat and preliminary test results in a recent issue of the Journal of the American Chemical Society.
BioTek continues providing unique solutions and technological advancements in microplate instrumentation by proudly announcing the first combination Hybrid multi-mode microplate reader and imaging system.
