Plate readers

The multi-functional Tecan Spark M10 has become the instrument of choice during the course of 2016. The older Victor 2 (Wallac) 1420 multilabel counter has been very seldom used over the last 18 months. Only the department of Animal Physiology replied to mailing and showed interest in this instrument and therefore it has been decided to transfer the Victor to that group from September 4, 2016 on.
