Spectral Scanning Multimode Reader

Spectral Scanning Multimode Reader
Varioskan™ Flash (Thermo Scientific)

The Varioskan Flash is an advanced spectral scanning multimode reader. It is used to measure fluorescence intensity (FI), time-resolved fluorescence (TRF), absorbance and luminescence in end point, kinetic and spectral measurements in the UV/Vis/NIR range from appropriate microplate formats. In fluorometric and luminometric measurements 6 to 1536-well plates can be used, and correspondingly 6 to 384-well plates in photometric measurements. Incubation can be carried out in a controlled incubation temperature. The instrument also allows shaking and reagent dispensing. The instrument is run on Thermo Scientific SkanIt Software 2.4.3 (or greater) for Varioskan Flash, which controls all the instrument functions and provides data processing as well as reporting functions.



Main instrumental features:

Unlimited wavelength selection for spectral analysis and measurement at any single wavelength: The optimal measurement wavelengths can be identified and easily selected for any assay at any time

Extremely easy measurement setup with automated internal functions, offering maximum sensitivity and full dynamic range for every assay

Onboard dispensers for exact follow-up of kinetic reactions: Essential for flash luminescence assays, Ca2+ flux studies and other rapid kinetic applications

Increased assay throughput: Reads up to 1536-well plates and can easily be integrated with automated systems

Compatible with the Thermo Scientific™ µDrop™ Plate that is a quick and easy tool for DNA and RNA assays using photometric measurement and sample volumes down to 2 µL

High performance incubator for temperature-critical assays

Easy assay setup, flexible data handling and convenient report formatting with Thermo Scientific SkanIt Software
