Choosing a Microplate Reader
There are many different types of microplate readers available and it can be sometimes difficult to pick the reader that best suits your needs. The basic considerations will be discussed below.
A microplate reader (also called sometimes microtiter plate reader) is a high-sensitivity instrument designed to analyze samples contained in microplate wells. Microplate formats can vary from 6-1536 wells, providing the ability to read many samples in a short time. The measurement can be performed using a variety of detection technologies: the most common detection modes used in plate readers are absorbance, luminescence and fluorescence. Microplates have become indispensable in modern laboratories and save labor, time and costs.
Types of Microplate Reader
There are several ways to classify microplate readers, but in the event of choosing or purchasing one, there are two important classifications: by detection technologies and by wavelength selection mechanism.
