In our blog How Low Can you Go? on September 17th we invited our readers to register to win the Epoch™ Multi-Volume Spectrophotometer System. The drawing was held on Friday, November 13th.
The Winner of the Epoch "Win Me" Contest, chosen at random from over 700 registrants from 69 countries, is Mr. Joël Tardivel-Lacombe from Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale (INSERM), Luminy Campus in France.
Mr. Tardivel-Lacombe noted: "We have a lot of uses for the Epoch, in the UV and visible ranges, and in various volumes. In the lab we are using a BioTek ELx800 for apps in visible light in culture plates, a UV spectrophotometer for RNA, DNA and protein quantitation in cuvettes, and a NanoDrop forquantitation in small volumes. With the Epoch we’ll do all in the same machine! It’s a great improvement!"
BioTek’s Epoch™ Multi-Volume Spectrophotometer System consists of the monochromator-based Epoch Microplate Spectrophotometer controlled by Gen5™ software, and the unique Take3™ Multi-Volume Plate that measures up to sixteen 2 µL samples, two BioCells, or a standard cuvette. Laboratories are provided with a high value solution for multiple users, multiple assays, and preservation of precious nucleic acid and protein samples by taking measurements in 2 µL microspots, 6- to 384-well microplates, or cuvettes.
Thank you to everyone who registered in the contest and congratulations to our winner!
