The ELx808™ Absorbance Microplate Reader provides the flexibility to manipulate and analyze your data.

This multi-channel reader continues BioTek's tradition of offering the tightest specifications of any microplate reader - precise, accurate and repeatable. The ELx808 on-board diagnostic self-test and calibration test plate make it easy to confirm and document reader performance. All calculations are performed automatically. Combined with our history of quality hardware engineering, the ELx808 sets the standard for microplate readers.


  • Extensive on-board data analysis, including:
    - Data transformation formulas
    - Assay and control validation 
    - Curve-fitting options: linear, 4-P, 2-P (logit/log), cubic, quadratic, cubic spline, point-to-point
    - Multiple assays per plate
  • Fast Kinetics:
    - Measurements in intervals as short as 6 seconds
    - Kinetic rate, R2 or onset time reported without needing a PC
  • Linear well scanning for agglutination assays
  • 4-Zone™ Temperature Control:
    - Incubation to 50ºC
    - Improved reproducibility in enzyme kinetic reactions
    - Enhanced uniformity through independently monitored heaters
    - Unique heated track/carrier design for minimal evaporation and edge effect
  • Superior optical design:
    - Incorporates a staggered optical design to eliminate channel-to-channel crosstalk
    - Reference channel rolls optical signal for uniform channel-to-channel signal
