Did you know that the low volume LVis Plate, which is used for assays like DNA, RNA and protein concentration determination, is now compatible on the PHERAstar FS?

The LVis Plate from BMG LABTECH allows low volume (2 uL) samples to be measured in the absorbance detection mode. The LVis Plate is ideal for determining the concentration of DNA, RNA and proteins without the need to create a standard curve. Fully compatible with the SPECTROstar Nano and the Omega series of microplate readers, the LVis Plate is now fully integrated into the newest version of the PHERAstar FS software (v4.00). Included in the software are easy to use Wizards that walk users through Pathlength Calibration, Cleanliness Check (see Figure), and Blank Measurements for the LVis Plate. Taking low volume measurements in a microplate reader has never been easier.
