Features of microplate readers

microplate reader rentalTo make the most out of the microplate readers, they will need to have plates that feature a large number of wells. The more wells, the more samples you will be able to include in the experiment. Since there are a number of different types of microplate reader, they have different features. Some will specialize in different aspects of reading, such as absorbance or fluorescence. Others have multiple modes and are more versatile. These multi-mode readers have different preset configurations that you can use with different types of experiments.

How microplate readers work

microplate reader rentalOne of the most interesting features of the device is that no matter the assay type, the experiments will use a standard curve in order to find the values. This means it is possible to perform many different experiments simultaneously and get correct and accurate readings for all of them. The reader is able to detect a number of different things, including absorbance, fluorescence, luminescence, light scattering, nephelometry, and more.

About microplate readers

The microplate reader is a very beneficial instrument that is in use in a number of different labs today. It allows the user to measure a number of different samples all at the same time. It can help to speed up the work in the lab and make it possible to get better results in less time. They are able to take a number of different types of measurements, including fluorescence and luminescence. They are also helpful when it comes to quantifying oxygen and examining various metabolic processes.
