Cyanotoxin Automated Assay System (CAAS)
PN 475200, CAAS, Microplate format, 96 well, without computer and printer, installation included
PN 000111, CAAS Training, On-site
CAAS is an automated, “hands off”, microtiter plate format analyzer for quantitative determination of anatoxin-a, BMAA, cylindrospermopsin, microcystins and saxitoxins. The analyzer is computer controlled and capable of automating all the steps of both ELISA and RBA assays including fluid handling, plate mixing, incubation/timing, optical reading, calculations and reports.
Assay automation with CAAS is easy, reliable, and consistent; moreover, multiple analyte assays can be run simultaneously (multiplexing). Testimonials

Microplate Reader, Computer Controlled
PN 475010, Microplate format, 96 well, Model 4303, without computer and printer
PN 000112, Model 4303 Training, On-site
The Model 4303 reader is a versatile, visible range (colorimetric) photometer for 96 well microtiter plate format testing. It provides all the functionality needed for numerous laboratory applications while offering great performance and value. The reader is a compact, PC-controlled, multi-purpose photometer designed to read and calculate the results of colorimetric assays. Trays containing strips of either 8 or 12 wells are accommodated, as well as partial strips. The compact, space saving design makes it ideal for stand-alone use. The reader is provided with user-programmable data reduction software which has selectable plate formatting, alphanumeric test naming, automatic interpretation options, and curve plotting plus editing flags.
AbraScan® III Test Strip Reader
PN 475025B, Test Strip format, without computer and printer
PN 000114, AbraScan Training
Digital test strip interpretation device that can be used with Abraxis strip tests (dipsticks). It features a color touchscreen interface, rechargeable internal lithium-ion battery, expandable SD card memory, and WiFi and printer connectivity options. This AbraScan model III has additional features over the model II: interchangeable cartridges to allow single- or multi-strip reading, streamlined user interface, and upgraded optics and connectivity. It provides a digital photographic record of test strips, and accurate analysis and interpretation of line intensities. Used in combination, the reader and test strips provide semi-quantitative and/or qualitative evaluation of cyanotoxins and other analytes in contaminated samples.
Microplate Strip Reader
PN 475007, Microplate Strip format, Model 4700, with printer Brochure
A compact, user-programmable colorimetric ELISA microplate strip reader with interactive touch-screen, curve fitting calculations with step-by-step prompting for single & multi-point calibration curves, several regression calculations, and a variety of cutoff and control options. Features three-strip loading capacity and on-board printer.
PN 475011, Plate Washer, Stat Fax 2600
Features fully automatic reading; Automatic calibration, alignment and last row detection; Large, non-volatile memory stores at least 50 user-specified wash protocols; Constant monitoring of vacuum and pressure; and Programmable automatic rinse cycle.
