SpectraMax M Series Multi-Mode Microplate Readers

The Challenge

At the American Heritage School, located in Plantation, Florida, students used a SpectraMax® M5e to conduct scientific research during their first Annual Summer Science Program. The microplate reader made it possible for the students to perform higher level research using GFP-labeled C. elegans, and Alcanivorax borkumensis. Additionally, they ran assays such as the Bradford assay and measured biofilm production.
