I have a SpectraMAX Gemini XS platereader working perfectly here in Aalborg.
The only problem I have experienced is that some times the cut-off filter
wheel is stuck which causes a stop in kinetic readings followed by an error
#324 message. Disabling the cut-off filter eliminates this error. We were
not pleased to find that replacement of the flash-lamp cost us 10.000 Dkr
(1300?), but the lamp did indeed last for many reads during long kinetic
