Designed for bioscience researchers with a wide variety of needs, the Thermo Scientific™ Varioskan™ LUX multimode microplate reader comes equipped with a flexible range of measurement technologies including Absorbance, Fluorescence Intensity, Luminescence, AlphaScreen, and Time-Resolved Fluorescence. The instrument simplifies measurement setup with the automatic dynamic range selection, and its smart safety controls ease workflow and help avoid experimental errors. Varioskan LUX raises the bar for reliability and ease, with technology that works in researchers’ best interest. The Varioskan LUX multimode reader has received HTRF™ certification from Cisbio Bioassays and DLReady™ validation from Promega Corporation.
The Varioskan LUX is a modular, upgradable instrument that provides excellent usability across a variety of applications.
Up to five measurement technologies: Absorbance (UV-Vis), Fluorescence intensity (incl. FRET), Luminescence (direct and filtered), AlphaScreen/AlphaLISA and Time-resolved fluorescence (incl. TR-FRET/hTRF)
Filter and monochromator optics
Spectral scanning for assay optimization
Five measurement modes including end point, kinetic, spectra, kinetic spectra and multipoint
Integrated gas control module for setting CO2 and O2 concentrations for cell based assays
Simultaneous dispensing and measurement for signal monitoring at the start of a reaction
Automatic dynamic range selection, based on signal intensity of each well
Smart safety controls designed to identify and alert the user of potential problems before they happen
Automated instrument calibration and self-diagnostics for reliable performance
Certified HTRF compatible reader by CisBio Bioassays
Validated DLReady by Promega Corporation
Varioskan LUX is paired with the powerful and intuitive SkanIt Software, providing excellent usability and flexibility.
License free—Each user can install the software on his/her computer
Intuitive and flexible interface for multiple users and assays
Innovative Virtual Pipetting Tool makes it easy to define samples to plate layout
Measurement data is continuously saved to the database, so there’s no data lost due to unexpected interruptions such as power outages or accidental aborting
Simplified data processing and export
Export data in a single mouse click, or have it emailed automatically at the end of the run
Several file formats for exporting results: *.xlsx, *.pdf, *.xml, and *.txt
Shows real-time spectra and kinetic curves during the measurement
Built-in calculations for data analysis (e.g. blank subtraction, average/SD/CV%, standard curve, dose response, quality control, classification, kinetic and spectral analysis, custom formula, etc.)
Comprehensive result reports with traceability to runtime actions and settings
Two editions available: Research Edition for life science researchers, and Drug Discovery Edition which offers features needed for the FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
The Varioskan LUX is modular and upgradeable, so you can build the system that best suits your needs. For more information, contact a sales representative.
