Affordability and unmatched assay performance in filter-based microplate readers

The FilterMax™ F3 and F5 Multi-Mode Microplate Readers offer a wide set of features at an affordable price-to-performance ratio. They provide absorbance, fluorescence, glow luminescence, and other read modes for programmable endpoint, kinetic, multiple-wavelength linear scan and area scan measurements.

  • Get great performance with LEDs

    Get great performance with LEDs

    The readers employ patented high-power light emitting diodes (LED) that are high powered at critical wavelengths, with an optimized light source for a specific dye or application.

  • Count single photons

    Count single photons

    The photomultiplier tube (PMT) detector operates in photon counting mode, affording increased sensitivity for red dyes with a linear dynamic range of over six orders of magnitude.

  • Get tailored data analysis

    Get tailored data analysis

    Save time from exporting data to external applications. SoftMax Pro Software provides more than 160 predefined yet powerful experiment protocols and programming capabilities for quick data analysis.

Features

  • Visible absorbance

    This reader provides visible absorbance, top-reading fluorescence intensity, and glow luminescence modes in 96- to 384-well plates with wavelength selection options from 340-650 nm.

  • UV and visible absorbance

    This reader provides UV and visible absorbance, top and bottom fluorescence intensity, glow luminescence, FP, and TRF modes in 6- to 1536-well plates with wavelength selection options from 230-750 nm.

Applications of FilterMax F3 and F5 Multi-Mode Microplate Readers

  • Mycoplasma Monitoring

    Mycoplasma Monitoring

    Mycoplasma, the smallest and simplest of the prokaryotes, are common contaminants of cell cultures. Symptoms of mycoplasma contamination include a reduction in the rate of proliferation and changes in cellular responses, including gene expression. Mycoplasma cannot be detected by simply examining cell cultures under a microscope, so a variety of methods such as fluorescence- and luminescence-based assays have been developed to enable researchers to monitor for contamination.

  • CloneSelect Imager Cell Viability

    Cell Viability

    Cell line development requires the discovery of single cell-derived clones that produce high and consistent levels of the target therapeutic protein. A critical first step in the process is the isolation of single, viable cells. Single-cells proliferate to form colonies, that can then be assessed for productivity of the target therapeutic protein. Viability and growth rates of single cell-derived clones can be characterized on the CloneSelect Imager.

  • Fluorescent Protein Detection

    Fluorescent Protein Detection

    Fluorescent proteins have become enormously popular as tools for monitoring biological events in vivo. In addition to green fluorescent protein (GFP) from the jellyfish Aequorea victoria, there are now numerous others available from other species of jellyfish and reef coral. These proteins can be expressed in a diverse range of cells and organisms, where they are used to track many cellular processes, including protein synthesis and translocation, gene induction, and cell lineage.

    Read Application Note 

  • ELISA

    ELISA

    Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) are used to measure the amount of a specific protein, typically in a microplate format, and results are most often detected via absorbance in the visible wavelength range. Chemiluminescent and fluorescent ELISA formats offer enhanced sensitivity for accurate quantitation of less abundant analytes.
