Product Spotlight

NEW Small but mighty absorbance readers
Bridge the gap between the affordability of filter-based readers and the flexibility of monochromator-based systems with the SpectraMax® ABS Absorbance Microplate Readers. Advanced technology provides you with the flexibility, sensitivity, and convenience for a wide range of assays such as ELISAs, microbial growth, and protein quantitation, all in an incredibly small footprint. The SpectraMax ABS readers fit in every lab and within every budget.

Application Spotlight

NEW Measure ROS
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are involved in cellular processes such as cell signaling, homeostasis, and immunological defenses. However, elevated ROS levels can cause oxidative damage to cellular components. Far-red fluorescent assay kits can quickly measure ROS without interference from autofluorescence. The SpectraMax® iD5 microplate reader reduces signal background and stray light, providing wide dynamic range and sensitivity for far-red fluorescent assays.
