FROM MANUFACTURERS LITERATURE: The ELx808IU Absorbance Microplate Reader with incubation and UV capability provides the flexibility to manipulate and analyze your data. This multi-channel reader continues BioTek's tradition of offering the tightest specifications of any microplate reader - precise, accurate and repeatable. The ELx808 on-board diagnostic self-test and calibration test plate make it easy to confirm and document reader performance. All calculations are performed automatically. This microplate reader includes a computer with Gen5 software. However, keyboard, mouse and monitor are excluded in order to save on shipping costs.
As a stand-alone microplate reader, the ELx808 is designed for applications within the following areas:
Biotechnology research
Cell biology
Cell counting
Cell proliferation
Food processing
Kinetic ELISA

-Extensive on-board data analysis, including Data transformation formulas; Assay and control validation; Curve-fitting options: linear, 4-P, 2-P (logit/log), cubic, quadratic, cubic spline, point-to-point; Multiple assays per plate
-Fast Kinetics: Measurements in intervals as short as 6 seconds; Kinetic rate, R2 or onset time reported without needing a PC
-Linear well scanning for agglutination assays
-4-Zone Temperature Control - Incubation to 50C; Improved reproducibility in enzyme kinetic reactions; Enhanced uniformity through independently monitored heaters; Unique heated track/carrier design for minimal evaporation and edge effect
-Superior optical design ;Incorporates a staggered optical design to eliminate channel-to-channel crosstalk; Reference channel rolls optical signal for uniform channel-to-channel signal
