[NEW] eBook Spotlight

Streamline beer, wine, and food quality control and safety analyses

Absorbance microplate readers are widely used in research, quality control, and manufacturing processes in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and nutraceutical industries. They provide rapid and sensitive measurements of a variety of analytes for a wide range of assays including ELISAs, microbial growth, detection of key compounds and contaminants, and protein quantitation, colors, and flavors.

Here, you’ll learn how you can use absorbance microplate readers to streamline your beer, wine, and food safety analyses using approved industry-standard methods.

[NEW] Application Spotlight

Get more high-content tools and tips for cell painting assays

Cell painting assays are a method of using 5+ fluorescent dyes to reveal several responses of interest at once. Each well yields multiple specific and measurable cellular responses, which are then analyzed using preconfigured or custom modules from MetaXpress® software to provide a richer profile than that of multi-parametric assays.

Learn how to optimize high-content imaging capabilities and perform multiplexed assays.

Monitor multiple stages of apoptosis with live cell kinetic imaging

The study of apoptosis is a critical aspect of drug discovery and development. Additionally, studying the relationship between apoptosis and other factors, such as oxidative stress, is crucial for understanding specific diseases that are associated with the dysregulation of apoptosis.

See how we ran two apoptosis assays to study the cytotoxic effects of anti-cancer compounds on HeLa cells. Long-term time-lapse imaging was performed on the ImageXpress Pico system. Live cell conditions were maintained using CellReporterXpress® software’s integrated environmental control of CO2, O2, temperature, and humidity.

GeneBLAzer cell-based FRET Assay for G-protein coupled receptors

GeneBLAzer assay is a fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET)-based method to study G-protein-coupled receptors and other drug targets in vivo (living cells) or in vitro (cell lysates).

The SpectraMax® Paradigm® Multi-Mode Microplate Reader offers dual photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) for fast read times and improved precision of FRET signals. Optical detection cartridges can be configured according to a user's needs. This comprises assay-flexible multimode as well as assay-specific cartridges. Combined with the GeneBLAzer Detection Cartridge, the reader is sensitive enough to detect even weak FRET signals, enabling miniaturization of the GeneBLAzer assay to a 1536-well microplate format with no compromise in assay performance.
