Hamamatsu Corporation: New FDSSCELL Imaging Based Plate reader
Published: Apr 01, 2010
Hamamatsu introduces a new imaging based plate reader, the FDSS?CELL, specifically developed for compound screening and assay development applications in the Pharmaceutical, CRO and Biotech Industries. The FDSS?CELL is optimised for fluorescent kinetic assays using calcium and membrane potential dyes such as FLUO4 and FMP. Dispensing is available in either 96 or 384 well format with easily exchangeable heads. Agonist / antagonist assays to be performed in the same run, as two additions are possible. The optional washing system reduces carry over and allows tips to be reused several times. Based on the renowned FDSS series, the ?CELL uses proven and reliable technology, including our famous Hamamatsu camera range, to provide high sensitivity and fast readout times of a few minutes, compared to the longer readout times offered by other readers currently in the market. Designed for fast and simple operation, assay and compounds plates can be easily loaded and the assay is ready to start. The software helps you to quickly set assay parameters in a single protocol which can then be easily transferred to the FDSS7000 for further screening. The new FDSS?CELL is very cost effective and is the reader of choice offering easy set-up and high speed readout for your kinetic assays in fluorescence.
