Spectrofluorometers or plate readers with fluorescence detection typically offer greater sensitivity and a wider dynamic range compared to absorbance detection. Because many reagents can be fluorescently labeled, spectrofluorometers are used to detect many biological and chemical processes. There are often fluorescent alternatives for applications like cell viability and nucleic acid quantification.
