BioTek Epoch Microplate Spectrophotometer

With its monochromator-based optics, Epoch™ Microplate Spectrophotometer offers a filter-free, wide wavelength range for UV-Vis absorbance measurements in a variety of microplate formats, and in 2 µL samples when the available Take3 plate is used. Epoch is controlled with the Gen5 Software interface, with simple programming and powerful data analysis. This robust, low maintenance microplate spectrophotometer is the most cost-effective system available, ensuring even greater value over time.
