SpectraDrop Micro-Volume Microplate

SpectraDrop Micro-Volume Microplate

Smaller, faster quantitation of DNA, RNA, and protein


A micro-volume solution for benchtop microplate readers

The SpectraDrop™ Micro-Volume Microplate offers a high-throughput solution for low-volume measurement. Innovative design features enable accelerated sample preparation time, increased laboratory productivity of DNA, RNA, and protein samples as low as 2 μL, and compatibility with absorbance and fluorescence read modes. The microplate format assures uniform and reproducible analysis and integrates seamlessly with the Molecular Devices StakMax® Microplate Stacker for greater research capacity.


Place droplets precisely

The Teflon slide coating ensures precise droplet placement, while the attached side spacers control for pathlength and evaporation, for a uniform and reproducible data analysis tool.

Ease of use

Clean easily

The two-slide design makes the cleaning process easy. You can quickly wipe, autoclave, sonicate, or simply replace each slide without worrying about any calibration steps.


Get unmatched throughput

With up to 64 sample spaces and compatibility with Molecular Devices StakMax Microplate Stacker, you get a measurement system that offers the highest low volume throughput available today.

Elegant simplicity

Elegant simplicity

The SpectraDrop microplate incorporates a specially designed adapter and a slide pair for a uniform multi-sample assembly. This simplicity allows users to have their own slide combination, ideal for multiuser laboratories.

Unique design

Unique design

The microplate’s unique design consists of a specially designed adapter, Teflon-coated bottom slide, and top slide with evaporation reducing spacers. It is compatible with 8- and/or 16-channel pipettors.

Easy slide access

Easy slide access

The microplate has two side pockets for easy slide access and tight slide tolerances for a no-smear experience.



The microplate comes in two density configurations, 24-wells per plate and 64-wells per plate, and two volume options, 2 or 4 μL, allowing users to select their ideal configurations.
