Molecular Devices Introduces Microplate Reader and Washer

SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Molecular Devices® today at the Experimental Biology annual meeting in San Diego introduced the inexpensive and versatile EMax® Plus Microplate Reader and MultiWash™+ Microplate Washer, which are designed for labs just starting up or looking to extend capabilities with affordable, yet reliable instrumentation that utilizes the industry-standard SoftMax® Pro Microplate Data Acquisition and Analysis Software.

The EMax Plus Microplate Reader measures 96-well plates and comes with eight standard filter modes to cover the entire visible range, for applications such as protein quantification, cell viability, cell proliferation and ELISA. The reader includes multiple licenses to the SoftMax® Pro software for endpoint and kinetic analysis of microplate data, eliminating any need to retrain lab members or compromise data analysis routines when switching between inexpensive low-throughput and powerful higher-throughput plate readers. SoftMax Pro reduces setup time for common assays with more than 140 built-in protocols, which are complemented by a large collection of community-shared protocols and tools for FDA 21 CFR Part 11 regulatory compliance.

The small-footprint Multiwash+ Microplate Washer quickly washes with both 96 and 384-well plates, has 20 standard wash protocols, and a simple LCD screen interface to customize speed, volume, soak time, and aspiration settings. The washer is engineered to be simple to maintain and use, including features that reduce clogging and noise. A set of four wash/rinse bottles and one waste bottle are included for out-of-the-box operation.

"Affordable, simple microplate readers and washers are indispensible instrumentation for many labs, both large and small. The EMax Plus reader and MultiWash+ washer provide a robust entry-level extension to the SpectraMax and Maxline microplate reader families. Both instruments are supported by our global support teams, ensuring longevity and value," says Martin Verhoef, Vice President, Strategy and Marketing at Molecular Devices.
