Grating-Monochromator Microplate reading spectrophotometer SAFAS Xenius XMA: accuracy and evolutivity

SAFAS XENIUS XM : Exceptional performances on microplates

The SAFAS Xenius XMA is a grating monochromator spectrophotometer, which profits by the unique experience of SAFAS, which introduced in 1958 the world’s first grating UV-Vis spectrophotometer, and is highly reputed for its outstanding optical quality, experience and performance.

It is based on highly innovative technologies and superb optics, as well as 100% AIR TECHNOLOGY (no fiber optics!), so as it enables to reach excellent accuracy levels.

It can draw spectra in your wells, as well as in cuvettes (option), with a scan speed up to 7000nm/minute and many data-processing functions.

Many options are available

SAFAS Xenius XMA can also receive cuvettes (option), achieve kinetics on 10 cuvettes and at up to 10 wavelengths, or achieve HPLC studies. It can also achieve Absorbance and Luminescence measurements, including spectra, and severa specialized software can be used (intracellular calcium, follow-up of series of samples, etc...).

An evolutivity and multivalence unique on the market

The spectrophotometer SAFAS Xenius XMA can also receive later many other options, like a second monochromator for Fluorescence, fiber optics for in situ measurements, a high sensitivity photon counting bioluminescence module, automatic injectors, absorbance mode (on cuvettes and microplates), bioluminescence with additional photon counting photomultiplier, etc... All these possibilities are available without any dismantling.

Exceptionally powerful software

Last but not least, the software are intensively developed by SAFAS since 1988, when SAFAS introduced the world’s first PC controlled spectrophotometer, button free.

Since then, all our customers have profited by our policy of free software update for instrument’s life, making their investment a very long term one and avoiding obsolescence of their equipment.

Among many possibilities, our multiwavelength module for series of samples, our intracellular ions module, and our 3D spectra module are among the most impressive.

-most of the possibilities described hereunder are optional: please ask us
-for software updates, a participation to CD and shipment is requested
