Biomark HD is an automated high-throughput PCR system that uses microfluidics technology to process samples at nanoliter-scale volumes. It can be used for gene expression analysis, genotyping, sample identification, copy number variation analysis and digital PCR.
The MANTIS liquid handler is an automated liquid dispenser that can dispense volumes down to 100 nL. It also allows lower tip consumption in high-throughput genomics and screening workflows.
The FlexStation® 3 Multi-Mode Microplate Reader measures absorbance, fluorescence intensity, fluorescence polarization, luminescence, and time-resolved fluorescence.
Centrifuges of different models, capacities and speeds (e.g. multi-purpose centrifuge and ultracentrifuge) are available. Please check the specifications of each model for details.
ZetaView is a nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA) instrument for in vitro measurement of multiple physical parameters including size, concentration, surface charge, and phenotype characteristics of biological nanoparticles.
The Invitrogen Countess II FL Automated Cell Counter can count cells, monitor fluorescent protein expression, and measure cell viability in as little as 10 seconds.
The Advanced Model 3320 Micro-osmometer determines osmolality of solutions by freezing point depression (FPD). It provides fast and accurate test results using just 20 µL of samples.
