The SpectraMax® M5 Multi-Mode Microplate Reader delivers single mode reader performance in one multimode reader package. The dual monochromator optics allow the widest range of applications to be utilized for bioresearch and drug discovery applications, all without the need to change filters.
The SpectraMax M5 Microplate Reader possesses the five modes preferred by the majority of our users providing the benefit of multiple detection modes in one platform.
- UV-Visible Absorbance (Abs) - Fluorescence Intensity (FI) - Time-Resolved Fluorescence (TRF) - Fluorescence Polarization (FP) - Glow Luminescence (Lumi) The SpectraMax M5 Microplate Reader is the standard for UV/visible multi-mode reader absorbance, providing ultrafast, full spectral range detection for cuvettes, 96-, and 384-well microplates. Using the patented PathCheck® Pathlength Measurement Technology, the SpectraMax M5 Microplate Reader transforms each well in a microplate to a fixed optical pathlength cuvette. This temperature-independent normalization corrects for varying well volumes and can eliminate standard curves by allowing the calculation of concentrations directly from the absorbance with a known extinction coefficient, as exemplified with nucleic acid and protein quantitation.
