Tecan launches Spark 10M reader at SLAS 2015

publication date: Feb 24, 2015
author/source: Tecan


This all-new platform is designed to offer greater flexibility and increased productivity for cell biology and genomics customers. From microbiology research and cell-based assays to rapid DNA quantification, the Spark 10M delivers a combination of advanced capabilities and exceptional ease-of-use to simplify your daily work.

At the heart of the Spark 10M are Tecan’s unique Fusion Optics which offer users the choice of filter- or monchromator-based measurements – or even a combination of both – at the touch of a button, meaning laboratories no longer have to make a trade-off between flexibility and sensitivity. This cutting-edge system is complemented by patent-pending High Speed Monochromators (HSM) which provide a complete absorbance scan, from 200 to 1,000 nm, in under five seconds.
The Spark 10M reader has been developed from the outset with cell-based assays in mind, and includes a host of software and hardware features designed to simplify cell biology protocols. It combines precise temperature regulation and plate shaking options with a fully integrated Gas Control Module (GCM™), offering advanced in-reader incubation capabilities for walkaway, long-term studies. Productivity and reproducibility are further improved by the addition of a humidity cassette and automated lid handling, helping to precisely balance gas exchange and provide exceptional evaporation protection. For even greater efficiency, the Spark 10M also features a bright-field cell counting module which uses Tecan’s disposable Cell Chip™ devices to provide rapid, label-free cell counting and analysis. Controlled by the system’s user-oriented SparkControl™ software and intuitive touchscreen interface, these advanced features make it easier than ever before to set up and run even complex assay protocols, with one-click operation and remote control for even greater efficiency and productivity.
