New Generation Microplate Spectrophotometer Redefines Photometry
The Multiskan Sky Microplate Spectrophotometer elevates the photometric assay experience in life science research

CARLSBAD, Calif., April 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Research scientists conducting nucleic acid and protein quantification, as well as any other kind of photometric research application, can now use this new UV/Vis microplate spectrophotometer for the ultimate user experience.

The Thermo Scientific Multiskan Sky Microplate Spectrophotometer made its debut at MipTec 2017 in September in Basel, Switzerland. It's designed for use in academic, biotech, pharmaceutical, and government research laboratories. It offers an impeccable user experience, featuring a touch-screen interface, built-in protocols for fast quantification of nucleic acids and proteins, and access to Thermo Fisher Cloud tools for maximizing data mobility.

"Multiskan Sky is a good fit for multi-user environments, as the results can be swiftly uploaded to the Thermo Fisher Cloud for remote access and further data processing," says Dr. Lari Lehtiö, Group Leader at the Faculty of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine, from the University of Oulu, Finland.

"This instrument is actually very easy to use. The ready-made protocols are extremely useful and the user interface is visual and appealing. In addition, there is little to no learning curve," said Ilkka Miettinen, pharmacist at the University of Helsinki, Department of Pharmacy.

Key features of the Multiskan Sky Microplate Spectrophotometer include:

  • A monochromator based optical system for free selection of wavelengths from 200 nm to 1000 nm
  • Endpoint, kinetic, and spectral scanning measurement modes in the most used sample formats
  • Ready-to-use protocols for nucleic acid and protein quantification
  • Stand-alone operation or pairs with Thermo Scientific SkanIt Software for powerful data analysis
  • The ability to operate in nine languages
