Absorbance Microplate Readers

The basic principle of absorbance measurements is described by Lambert-Beer’s law. Absorbance measurements are typically based on a transmission configuration to determine the magnitude of intensity attenuation of incident light by an analyte. The non-absorbed light is collected by a detector located opposite the light source, on the other side of the microplate well. Typical absorbance applications include ELISAs, assays for monitoring enzyme activities, or protein and DNA quantification assays.

We offer both, dedicated absorbance plate readers and multimode plate readers configured to perform absorbance  measurements.
