Multiskan SkyHigh Microplate Spectrophotometer

Multiskan SkyHigh Microplate Spectrophotometer is a UV/Vis microplate reader designed to be convenient and easy to use for any photometric absorbtion or turbidimetric research applications and especially DNA, RNA and protein analysis. This microplate reader is ideal for multi-user environments where a variety of endpoint, kinetic and spectral assays are performed. Multiskan SkyHigh is available in different configurations. Touchscreen models offer the flexibility to use the system as stand-alone, or together with Thermo Scientific™ SkanIt Software for PC control. A model with a cuvette reading option is also available. For convenient data handling, Multiskan SkyHigh has an option to access to Thermo Fisher Connect and Microsoft OneDrive cloud-based tools.
