HTS Compound Library Management
To avoid contamination when using an HTS compound library, a working library is often created. With this new microplate reader, the purity and concentration of the compounds in the working library are quickly and easily confirmed.
For instance, if a researcher has a library in a 384-well microplate and wants to verify each well's concentration and purity by capturing a full absorbance spectrum (220–1,000 nm), it can be accomplished in 6 minutes at a 1 nm resolution on the SPECTROstar Nano.
Traditionally, using a monochromator with 10 nm increments, this would take more than six hours per 384-well plate. In addition to being more than 60 times faster the resolution is 10 times better, allowing for unprecedented high-resolution, full-spectrum scans of each well.
