I just researched this topic.

I just researched this topic. I didn't find any for that price, new. You can go to LabX or another such site for used equipment but beware used readers can have problems and software might no longer be available.

Check the website: www.labx.com. They are selling are kinds of used laboratory equipments and they have used ELISA readers. You can go to search on the top of the page and ask for microplate readers.

Good luck

Try this website:

http://www.thermo.com/

They have a Multiskan Ascent plate reader which is capable of reading 96 well plates and 384 well plates in various formats. It also has interchangeble filter capability, meaning that if you need it, you could add in an extra filter for reading at the desired wavelength.

Try MTX lab systems http:/

Try MTX lab systems http://www.mtxlsi.com/ They sell used plate readers, some for less than 3K. And unlike some other surplus equipment sites, they guarantee their products.

Most microplate readers have

Most microplate readers have a troubleshooting section in their user's manual. You should look up your error message there. It should tell you if can fix it yourself and how you can do it. If you need to call a rep it should tell you too.

If you state your make and model of machine here then someone may be able to help you more.

We have acquired an old fmax

We have acquired an old fmax plate reader and have successfully loaded the platereader's software into our PC. However, we are unable to get the PC to recognize [communicate with] the plate reader.

Does anyone have an fmax manual? Only excerpts are available from the manufacturer.

Alternatively, is there a reader who uses the fmax plate reader and can give us his/her suggestions?

Thanks for your help!

Does this use a serial port,

Does this use a serial port, and does your pc have a serial port on the motherboard, PCI card or do you use a USB-Serial convertor?
Also, the Molecular Devices Softmax series software requires a security key/network license if I remember right. You should contact your reseller about that.

Also, keep in mind Molecular Devices policy:
SoftMax Pro Updates and Upgrades

To check for SoftMax Pro updates and upgrade offers, follow these steps:

1. Log-in to the web site. If you have never registered on the MDC web site, you must do that first.
2. Go to Registered Products & Software Upgrades.
3. If your copy of SoftMax Pro is not listed, press the Register New Products button to register your copy. Enter any Promo Code that you may have received in a letter in your SoftMax Pro package.
4. Back on the Registered Products page, click on the SoftMax Pro link to check for software updates, or SoftMax Pro 5 upgrade offers or downloads.

Note: Software obtained from unauthorized resellers is considered in violation of the MDC software license agreement which states that SoftMax Pro and SoftMax Pro GxP are non-transferable.

A Solutions Search (see box

A Solutions Search (see box tab above left) of the internet gives a quick start guide. Your instrument should have come with a software license (either a USB dongle or network key) - I think that is necessary to run SoftMax Pro.

The fix was to to use the correct cable to connect the plate reader and the PC and he had to use the original 3.5 inch floppy discs to  enter the program into the PC that controls the plate reader.
