SpectraMax® Paradigm® - The future of Microplate Readers

Sep 05 2012

The SpectraMax® Paradigm® Multi-Mode Microplate Detection Platform is the only user upgradeable microplate reader on the market that allows for real-time system configuration by the user in less than two minutes. Unlike traditional readers its modularity allows you to modify the instrument configuration to your needs.

If your detection requirements change, you can simply add the appropriate detection cartridge. The detection cartridges are offered for a wide range of applications: Absorbance, Fluorescence Intensity, FRET, Fluorescence Polarization, Luminescence, AlphaScreen®, HTRF® as well as custom-made cartridges. Molecular Devices is constantly working on new cartridges to meet future application needs of our SpectraMax® Paradigm® customer base. With the current setting of the system, users can analyse up to 1536-well microplates under controlled temperature conditions.

  • Benefits of using the SpectraMax® Paradigm®
  • Flexible design accommodates future expansion
  • User-upgradeable microplate reader; upgrade in < 2 minutes
  • Superior sensitivity and performance
  • Future-ready

For validated laboratories the SpectraMax® Paradigm® with SoftMax® Pro 6 GxP is the ideal system. Modes that can be validated include:

  • Absorbance
  • Fluorescence Intensity
  • Time Resolved Fluorescence
  • Luminescence
  • HTRF
  • AlphaScreen® & AlphaLisa®

NEW TUNE Detection Cartridge
SpectraMax® Paradigm® Platform with TUNE Technology is the hallmark of revolutionary microplate reader technology. TUNE Technology combines the flexibility of wavelength scanning with the high sensitivity of filters that is unmatched by other traditional monochromator systems. Our patent-pending TUNE cartridge uses high powered LEDs and TUNE technology to provide the wavelength flexibility of a monochromator system (1 nm increments) with the sensitivity of a filter-based system and by combining SpectraMax® Paradigm® and TUNE with SoftMax® Pro software the Spectral Optimization Wizard reduces wavelength optimization by at least 50% so you can optimize wavelengths for new fluorophores almost as quickly as snapping your fingers.
