Did you know that BMG LABTECH microplate readers have an advanced script mode that can be used to combine multiple functions of the plate reader easily?

Using script mode, researchers have full control of how their protocol is used to measure samples. This function is in addition to the easy to manage Testrun Protocol setup and is especially useful when creating intricate kinetic measurements combining shaking and resting periods, multiple measurement modes, and more. For example, the new assay for prion measurement, Real-Time Quaking Induced Conversion Assay (RT-QuIC), takes advantage of the script mode by combining a temperature setting of 42°C with alternating shaking and resting periods of one minute with measurements every 15 minutes. Advanced measurement protocols such as this can be easily created for use on BMG LABTECH readers.

Script Wizard allows BMG LAGTECH users to multiplex protocols for complex assays like RT-QulC prion seeding assay.
