Multimode Microplate Readers

Multimode microplate readers enable you to move from application to application with ease. Equipped with various reading technologies, detection modes, filters or monochromators, these versatile platforms enable you to move from ELISA to label-free, fluorescence to luminescence or absorbance-based applications on a single platform. These readers are easy to use and offer you the most value for your budget. Choose between maximum flexibility in a single system or full modularity, that enables you to start with the reading technology you need to master your research today and to upgrade whenever you need it.
