The software also provides a visual workflow for data reduction. Users can set the optimum conditions in their experiments. Its data storage and data management options make it a useful tool for any research lab. The SkanIt software offers many features that help researchers get the most out of their instrumentation.
The SkanIt software package is designed for use with Thermo Scientific Multiskan FC, Luminoskan Fluoroskan, Varioskan, and SkyHigh microplate readers. It is available in two editions: research and drug discovery. For life science and drug discovery applications, the research edition is intended for users who need to meet FDA 21 CFR Part 11 guidelines. It is also compatible with Thermo Scientific’s Multiskan SkyHigh Microplate Spectrophotometer.
Compatible with thermo scientific microplate readers
HTRF technology is compatible with many types of microplate readers. You may already have a microplate reader and are looking for an upgrade. If so, contact the HTRF scientific team to discuss your needs and the best option for your laboratory. You can check to see if your reader is compatible with HTRF technology, and configure it with the appropriate HTRF setup. The following table summarizes the features of HTRF microplate readers.
The Thermo Scientific Varioskan LUX multimode plate reader is equipped with five different measurement technologies and an automated dynamic range selection. This versatile instrument also has built-in safety features, including auto-calibration and self-diagnostics. You can even use a Thermo Scientific Varioskan LUX with automation ready software, which means it can automate your microplate-reading workflow and save you time.
A Thermo Varioskan LUX multimode microplate reader is compatible with nearly every plate-based assay. It can measure fluorescence, absorbance, and luminescence. It also offers an automatic plate check function, which prevents accidental measurements and reagent dispenses without a microplate. The built-in shaker is set to the precise levels of each plate and helps to eliminate the risk of liquid spillage inside the instrument.
Microplate readers are laboratory instruments used to measure biological and chemical reactions. They come in a variety of configurations and can detect light signals from samples pipetted into microplates. Different analytic reactions result in different optical changes in the samples. The main detection modes are absorbance, fluorescence intensity, and luminescence, but there are also advanced modes available. The following table lists the compatible thermo scientific microplate readers:
Easy-to-read visual workflow
A visual workflow eliminates communication and collaboration problems, which can cause delays or inefficiencies. With a visual workflow, everyone speaks the same language and everyone understands the process at hand. Skanit’s visual workflows also ensure that processes comply with regulatory frameworks and standard business practices. As a result, they can deliver stellar results for your business. Let’s look at how it works:
It’s easy to create a visual workflow using HighGear. You don’t need to have any coding skills to create a simple workflow. It comes with four essential elements, such as stages and workflow phases, and allows you to color-code them. The tool also allows you to add more layers and workflow stages as you go. Then, you can visualize them with a simple click.
A photo-based visual workflow can be a powerful tool when you need to provide detailed work instructions. Photos of real materials and parts help employees understand the details of the process. They can show the correct way to assemble a component or piece of equipment. Using a photograph-based visual workflow allows you to show the parts separately while still giving them text guidance. With a photo-based visual workflow, you can also integrate business rules and simplify processes for employees.
Skanit’s Visual Workflow Builder allows you to easily create and modify workflows with thousands of different endpoints, functions, and data operators. Visual workflows are easy to share, reproduce, and modify, and save users valuable time and resources. It is available in the free version of Skanit. You can use the free version for your business. But you’ll need a free account to create an unlimited number of visual workflows.
Flexible exporting capabilities
SkanIt has flexible exporting capabilities and excellent usability. Its software controls instrument settings and exports data in multiple file formats. You can also perform complex assays on SkanIt. With SkanIt, your data is always secure and easy to manage. You can also export data to Microsoft Excel and other file formats. Here are some of the other advantages of SkanIt. Weigh the pros and cons.
Pathlength correction calculation
DNA assays require a pathlength correction. The pathlength of the liquid is dependent on several factors, including the concentration of the sample. Using a multimode spectrophotometer such as the SkanIt Software, you can automatically correct the pathlength of a DNA assay. A typical liquid pathlength is between two and five micrometers in a standard cuvette, but can be ten times as long or less in a microplate.
To calculate the K-factor, start by measuring the absorbance of the assay buffer at 975 nm and 900 nm. Then subtract A975 from A900 and you will get the “K-factor.” Then, divide the corrected absorbance value by 10 mm. You can then use Functions 3 and 4 to calculate the liquid pathlength of each well. The corrected absorbance value corresponds to a pathlength of 10 mm.
After performing the pathlength correction, you can export the results to Microsoft Excel for further analysis. The software also supports various data export formats, including Microsoft Excel. With these capabilities, pathlength correction is a straightforward process that can be completed quickly and easily. The user-friendly interface and skanit-compatible algorithms ensure that you get a high-quality pathlength correction with minimum fuss. Once you’re done, you’ll be surprised by the accuracy of the results.
The Pathlength correction step requires a data source that is 260 nm. The software will automatically perform a blank subtraction step for you. Once the pathlength correction is complete, click on the “Results” tab to view the results. You’ll see different values in the “Results” tab. In the “Results” view, you’ll see the dsDNA concentration as a percentage of the original value.
