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, Model 4303PN 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 Strip Test Reader

AbraScan® III Test Strip Reader
PN 475025B, Test Strip format, without computer and printer

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.
