Evaluation Plate

Functional Microplate Reader Validation


The intended use of the Evaluation Plate is the validation of the optical functionality of BMG LABTECH microplate readers for quality control and/or qualification (IQ/OQ) purposes in environments following GLP compliance. The plate is compatible with all BMG LABTECH readers listed below and is designed to simplify fluorescence intensity, luminescence and absorbance qualification tests, saving time and avoiding the use of liquid standards.

Unlike liquid tests that are affected by pipetting or handling errors, the Evaluation Plate reduces error sources as it is equipped with NIST-traceable absorbance reference filters, and solid standards for fluorescence and luminescence.

Workflows for test measurements and data reductions are automatically performed by the software, which also reports on attainment or failure to fulfil the validation parameters.
