Multi-Mode Microplate Readers

Multi-detection plate readers

Configurable multi-mode plate readers evolve with your laboratory needs and adapt to support new projects and changing objectives.

What is a multi-mode plate reader?

A microplate reader that can detect two or more applications is considered a multi-mode plate reader. Typically the system can detect absorbance, luminescence, fluorescence, and even make more specialized fluorescence measurements like time-resolved fluorescence (TRF) and fluorescence polarization (FP).
Other technologies such as imaging, alsphascreen or western blot detection can be added to some multi-mode plate readers. Consider a system that has the capability to upgrade if current budget is a factor.

Advantages of multi-mode plate reader technology

A multi-mode reader has many advantages for labs conducting applications ranging from ELISAs to nucleic acid and protein quantitation to cell imaging. Combining multiple microplate technologies and detection modes into a single, more versatile unit may be an ideal choice especially if you have limited lab space.

Versatile multi-mode plate readers allow you to upgrade your detection mode as your research expands.
