  • SmartReader 96, Microplate Absorbance Reader

    The Accuris SmartReader 96, models MR9600 and MR9600-T are welcome additions to any lab that is routinely measuring concentration or absorbance in 96 well plates.  The 7 inch touch screen, intuitive software and graphical interface make these instruments easy to use as a standalone reader (a separate computer and additional software is not required).

    • Intuitive, 7 inch color touch screen control panel
    • Filter based system with wavelength range from 340 to 750nm
    • Operates as a stand alone system, with USB flash drive for data transfer
    • Absorbance range: 0.0 to 4.000 Abs 
    • 8 channel vertical optical path, with zero dispersion
    • Integrated, multi-speed plate shaker
    • MR9600-T  features temperature controlled plate incubation

    The SmartReader 96 comes complete with 4 popular filters: 405,450,492,630nm and twenty six additional filters are available separately to cover a full range from 340 to 750nm.  The integrated filter wheel allows up to 8 filters to be loaded at once, and filters can be selected during programming

    Use the touch screen, or connect a mouse for programming and operation.  The menu interface allows the user to choose the wavelength filter, set shaking parameters, enter details of the plate layout, and also choose the details for the reading protocol and data calculations.

    Model MR9600-T offers precise temperature control for incubation of plates during processing.  Temperature can be maintained at 5°C above ambient to 50°C.

    Up to two filters can be used for 2 measurements of the sample plate, for calculated comparisons.  Kinetic calculations can be performed by setting multiple readings.

    The SmartReader 96 is a convenient stand alone reader, all software and the programing system is incorporated into the electronics.  However, a convenient USB port on the side allows quick and easy saving of data files to a USB drive, and the universal .csv files can then be shared or transferred to a computer for storage or further processing.  A data port can be used for connecting a computer or basic printer.

    The plate layout interface allows for quick and intuitive set up of a plate’s well contents.  The display shows a graphical representation of the 96 well plate, and the user can label each well as required for: “known standard”, “unknown sample”,  “blank well”, “QC control well”, “negative control”, “positive control”, or “empty”.  The interface allows highlighting and labeling multiple wells to save time.

    Measurement data is available immediately on the screen after a reading, as well as interpretations, calculated analysis and curve fittings.

    Newly available PC software is compatible with Windows computers for programming and controlling the MR9600 remotely.  Click here to download a trial version of our software.

    MR9600-CAL Calibration Plate

    If performance verification or calibration is required, we offer this service through our Service Department.  Or for routine, in-lab verification and calibration  we offer a calibration plate (part no.  MR9600-CAL).  This plate incorporates a range of neutral density filters as well as features to check

    • plate positioning
    • cross talk
    • absorbance accuracy
    • precision and linearity
    • infrared jamming
    • 0 OD and overflow

    The SmartReader™ 96 has been cited in numerous papers, published in respected scientific journals.  Click here for an abbreviated list of published papers where our SmartReader™ 96 was used during the research.
