  • Thermo Electron Multiskan Spectrum
  • Power Cord
  • Manual (pdf version)
SkanIt software (not included, but available)

  • Wavelength selection:  Monochromator
  • Wavelength range:  200-1000 nm
  • Bandwidth:  2 nm
  • Wavelength resolution:  1 nm
  • Measurement time:  20 seconds for 96 wells and 60 seconds for 384 wells
  • Shaking and incubation up to 45C for temperature critical applications
The Multiskan Spectrum provides several advantages relating mainly to the principle of operation in that it:
  • Supports photometric applications requiring measurement in the UV/Vis/NIR wavelength range 
  • Allows optimization of the measurement wavelengths
  • The Multiskan Spectrum is two instruments in one, combining both cuvette reading capabilities and microplate reading in one compact instrument
  • Can perform DNA/RNA analysis in microplate format
  • Allows use of freely selectable wavelengths and spectral scanning
  • Allows optimization of the assays to different plate formats depending on the assay requirements
  • Enables direct comparison of microplate and cuvette readings
  • Enables incubation of temperature-critical assays
  • Allows monitoring of the purity and stability of reagents to ensure product quality
  • Enables automation due to robot compatibility
  • Is controlled by SkanIt Software 2.4.2 (or greater) that provides features required to make comprehensive calculations and reports
  • Allows verifiable performance
