SoftMax® Pro Data Acquisition & Analysis Software serves as the user interface to the popular EMax®, VMax™, Gemini™, and SpectraMax® Microplate Readers. Users are able to customize reader settings through the software to take advantage of unique reader technologies that improve the quality of assay data such as: temperature-independent pathlength correction for absorbance measurements and automatic gain correction for fluorescence.
With the largest built-in library of assay protocols that contain optimized reader settings and pre-defined calculations, SoftMax Pro Software combines reader control and data analysis to improve laboratory efficiency with result reporting as the raw data is being generated. Sophisticated curve fitting and statistics provide more in-depth bioassay analysis, reducing the need for laborious and error-prone copying and pasting between software applications.
SoftMax Pro Software has been integrated into leading automation and LIMS workflows, offering text and advanced XML import/export of samples and data for more intelligent parsing. SoftMax Pro Software additionally controls the StakMax® Microplate Handling System, Molecular Devices' own microplate stacker, for seamless pairing to achieve higher throughput.
Additional tools for regulatory compliance are included in SoftMax Pro GxP Compliance Software, which builds on the core features of the existing SoftMax Pro Software.
