BioTek proudly unveils the new Epoch™ 2 Microplate Spectrophotometer. Epoch 2 is the first reader to combine a large touchscreen and full onboard data analysis software for simplified and efficient operation and reporting of absorbance-based detection workflows.

The 10-inch color touch screen interface offers an enhanced user experience, with intuitive navigation and a high resolution display. On-board Gen5™ Data Analysis Software provides quick analysis and flexible export and report options at the touch of a few buttons. Data export is expanded via WiFi, Bluetooth® and USB flash drive.

To further maximize versatility, Epoch 2 features a spectral range from 200 to 999 nm, selectable in 1 nm increments for single, dual and multi-wavelength measurements in endpoint and kinetic read methods; and also offers spectral scanning and well area scanning. Compatible sample vessels include 6- to 384-well microplates, standard cuvettes and 2 μL micro-volume samples via BioTek's Take3™ Micro-Volume Plates. Standard linear, orbital and double orbital shaking, and precise 4-Zone™ temperature control to 65 °C are ideal for cell-based assays. Throughput may be increased by interfacing with BioTek's BioStack™ Microplate Stacker or third-party automation.
