Used Microplate Reader

A microplate reader, or simply a plate reader, is a laboratory instrument that measures chemical, biological or physical reactions, along with the properties and analytes of samples. This equipment is typically used for research in the fields of cell biology, molecular biology, immunology, and drug discovery and development.

Selecting Your Ideal Used Microplate Reader

Laboratories rely on microplate readers for the quick and reliable assessment of samples. To make the most of your plate reader, it should fit all your requirements.

Key Considerations for Choosing a Microplate Reader

Different specifications call for different microplate reader technology. Depending on your research priorities, these are some key considerations:

  • Throughput: If you need a high-throughput instrument, opt for one that can screen 96-well to 1536-well microplates in less than a minute.

  • Flexibility: A highly flexible device is ideal for laboratories that support a wide range of projects. Go for a multimode reader with additional capabilities than the typical microplate reader.

  • User experience: You also want an easy-to-use reader to avoid delays from time spent training other researchers to use the machine.

  • Upgradability: Consider a microplate reader that can accommodate your current and future needs.

Understanding Microplate Reader Technology

Microplate readers use various detection modes when measuring samples. Depending on the model that you use, you may either have a single-mode or a multimode reader. The primary detection modes are:

  • Absorbance: Helpful for nucleic acid identification and quantification, protein quantitation, bacterial growth assays, and ELISA applications.

  • Luminescence: Beneficial for cell viability assays, calcium flux, gene reporter assays, cytotoxicity, kinase assays and chemiluminescent ELISA protein-protein interactions.

  • Fluorescence: Can assist with DNA/RNA concentration, cell quantification, protein expression, enzyme kinetics and fluorescence-based immunosorbent assay applications.
