SpectraMax

The SpectraMax i3x Multi-Mode Microplate Reader measures absorbance, fluorescence and luminescence. Its dual light sources, a xenon lamp and LEDs, illuminates samples with incomparable signal strength and superior sensitivity. The cooled PMT detector allows high sensitivity in a wide dynamic range, even in extremely low light. Two fluorescence detection channels allow the instrument to analyze cell viability or cell toxicity assays, including ratiometric assays like live-dead and transfection efficiency.

Access:

Projects are initiated by a meeting of the user, principal investigator, Core Director and Core Manager.  Contact Mr. Tej Shrestha.  
The Core provides individual training.  
Trained users coordinate instrument use via the Scheduler.

 

Fees:

Nanotechnology core facility equipment use is currently free for properly trained persons, with approval of the lab manager.  However, a fee structure will be implemented long-term.  This fee structure is expected to be similar to that of the other core labs on campus.
