Absorbance Linearity Test Report in Checkmark Software
Absorbance Linearity Test Report in Checkmark Software

With its unique imaging capabilities, monochromator design, and spectral scanning feature (which eliminates the need for filters), the xMark™ microplate absorbance spectrophotometer can find the best wavelength within a broad range for any photometric application. The xMark spectrophotometer is also flexible enough to read all standard microplates, from 6- to 1,536-well formats. Using Microplate Manager® software, the xMark spectrophotometer can perform a wide range of end-point and kinetic applications with spectral scanning within low UV to infrared wavelengths. Extensive data analysis includes comprehensive curve-fit models and automated data export in single-plate or batch formats. Benefits include:

  • Monochromator-based system for maximum optical efficiency and flexibility in photometry reading
  • Spectral scanning to define the best absorbance wavelength for assays
  • Imaging capabilities for pixel intensity data in a single well or entire plate
  • Ability to scan custom plates
  • Flexible control and data analysis with PC or Mac software
  • Incubator with programmable temperature control
