About this microplate reader
With SpectraMax® Multi-Mode readers, there is no need to utilize expensive filters to optimize detection levels and background. The optical systems use two scanning monochromators so the user can determine optimal excitation and emission settings, resulting in assay performance similar to that of dedicated single-mode readers. All M Series readers accept cuvettes and 6-, 12-, 24-, 48-, 96-, and 384-well microplates. Other standard features include spectral scanning across the wavelength range in 1 nm increments, up to six absorbance wavelengths per read, and up to four wavelength pairs for other read modes.
