Molecular Devices furthers science in the final frontier: SpectraMax M5e Multi-Mode Microplate Reader is first microplate reader in space

The SpectraMax® M5e Microplate Reader's unique mechanics allows efficient adaptation to the zero gravity in space and offers the most advanced features in one unit, making it the ideal candidate for handling research applications in a rigorous environment. The system had to pass vibration load, zero gravity, and temperature fluctuation testings in order to be used in space. In addition to its engineering, the ability to automate the system, and its ease of operation meant that scientists and astronauts alike could perform sophisticated analytical experiments in biochemistry, stem cell and cancer research, immunology, and microbial growth, just to name a few, on board the International Space Station.
