Automated pipetting ensures consistent performance over multiple assay conditions on a micropl...
The FlexStation® 3 Multi-Mode Microplate Reader measures absorbance, fluorescence intensity, fluorescence polarization, luminescence, and time-resolved fluorescence. Programmable liquid handling allows for perfectly timed, automated biochemical and cell-based assays. The reader adds up to three transfers of assay reagents from a 96- or 384-well source plate to enhance assay design using integrated fluidics.
Integrated 8-channel or 16-channel pipettor increases assay flexibility by transferring reagents from 96 or 384 distinct wells in a source plate to the read plate.
Optimal assay excitation
Dual monochromators allow users to target the optimal assay excitation and emission wavelengths and eliminate the need to change expensive band pass filters between experiments.
Low volume applications
SpectraDrop™ Micro-Volume Microplate offers a high-throughput solution for low volume measurement, accelerating sample preparation time and increased productivity in DNA, RNA and protein research.
The FlexStation 3 reader can be integrated with all leading partner robots and with our out-of-the-box automation solution for savings on up-front integration time and resources.

Features of FlexStation 3 Multi-Mode Microplate Reader
Five-mode reader with wide range of applications
The FlexStation® 3 reader’s optics are designed to easily adapt to changes in assay requirements while maintaining the optimal performance of a single-mode reader. Based on the SpectraMax M5e platform, this five-mode reader addresses multiple application technologies including: absorbance, fluorescence intensity, fluorescence polarization, luminescence and time-resolved fluorescence. Dual monochromators allow users to target the optimal assay excitation and emission wavelengths and eliminate the need to change expensive band pass filters between experiments.
Flexible liquid transfer enables more assay conditions
Using an 8- or 16-channel pipettor, the FlexStation 3 reader offers added assay flexibility over dispenser-based systems by transferring reagents from 96 or 384 distinct wells in a source plate to a read plate, simultaneously. In addition, users can define individual reagents and concentrations to be delivered to each well.
Comprehensive Reader Validation
SpectraTest® Absorbance and SpectraTest Fluorescence Validation Packages are available to determine the optical characteristics of the system. The FlexStation 3 Reader exclusively offers fluid transfer validation using Molecular Devices patented PathCheck® Feature to quantify the integrated 8- and 16-channel pipettor head performance. These tools can be used in conjunction with SoftMax® Pro Software.
Automating with Ease
The FlexStation 3 reader can be integrated with a variety of automation solutions. Our Automation Vendor Partners Program has streamlined the integration of our microplate reader systems with all leading partner robots. The “out-of-the-box” automation solution saves up-front integration time and resources.
We offer a full line of assay kits optimized for use with the FlexStation 3 reader.
