APE ELITE+Portataniche
APE ELITE is the latest version of ELISA processors able to manage 10 methods on line with 4 microplates at different temperatures. It is equipped with a sliding barcode reader; a microplate shaker is also available. Its user friendly approach for both software and hardware allows the operator to start working with the instrument as soon it is out of the box, no pre-adjustments or calibrations are required.
