Cost-effective monochromator-based absorbance
Epoch is a fantastic value, offering filter-free absorbance with high quality optics and robust hardware. It reads microplates in 6- to 384-well format, quickly, efficiently and with great performance.
200 to 999 nm for UV-Vis applications
Nucleic acid and protein quantification in microplates is fast and easy, with Epoch’s monochromator wavelength selection and Gen5 software’s automated pathlength correction. Qualitative and quantitative colorimetric assays are supported, and pre-programmed protocols in Gen5 make it super simple, from plate read to results output.
Micro-volume detection with the Take3 plate
The Take3 Micro-volume plates expand Epoch’s capabilities to very small, 2 µL sample volumes for direct DNA, RNA and protein quantification. Get rapid results for up to 48 samples at a time, without investing in additional instrumentation.
Wavelength scanning, endpoint, and kinetics
Epoch can measure absorbance in 6- to 384- well plates in endpoint, kinetic and spectral scan reading modes. Gen5 immediate displays the raw and calculated data, plus standard curves and spectral scans.
Walkaway processing: available BioStack compatible configurations
To automate reading processes for multiple plates, a robot-friend configuration of Epoch interfaces with BioStack Microplate Stacker. Process 10, 30 or 50 microplates automatically and efficiently, freeing you for other tasks.
