SpectraMax® M5 Multi-Mode Microplate Reader

"This multi-mode plate reader is very easy to use and the software installed in this instrument can be used with any type of curve fitting applications. Our lab uses this product for cell based functional assays, ligand binding assays, immunoassays, etc. They can be used for many detection systems - absorbance, fluorescence, etc."

Application Area: Biochemical assay
SpectraMax® M5 Multi-Mode Microplate Reader

"We have been using this for 3 years. It is easy to use and flexible. But it does have a well-to-well variation on 384 well plate when fluorescence intensity is measured. It also has a precision problem when 384 well plate was used. The signal goes down as the number of measurements are increased. The measurement with 96 well plates is OK."

SpectraMax® M5 Multi-Mode Microplate Reader

"Software is very easy to use although it does occasionally malfunction and needs to be shut down and restarted. The %CV across the plate is minimal and machine works quickly so that's always a plus. With many features, it is used quite a lot in our lab and we are purchasing another one this year."

SpectraMax® M5 Multi-Mode Microplate Reader

"The Spectra Max is a user friendly, sensitive and multi-application plate reader. It saves time, it’s fast and also allows multiple estimations at one site. I recommend it strongly for estimations of enzyme activities of various enzymes like Cox 2 by using kits."

SpectraMax® M5 Multi-Mode Microplate Reader

"It is the best multifunctional reader with open-ended applications and extremely powerful SoftmaxPro statistical software. Patented Pathcheck and water constants are added features leading to most reliable and reproducible results. Easy to input any manufacturer's plate configurations for repeatability. I highly recommend this and other plate readers from Molecular devices for any start-up laboratory."

"Flexible and reliable."

Description

 

The upgradeable SpectraMax M5 Multi-Mode Microplate Reader comes with the standard five modes of detection with the upgrade option to add HTRF at a later time. Your applications, your modes, your choice.

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 is the standard for UV/visible multi-mode reader absorbance, providing ultrafast, full spectral range detection for cuvettes, 96-, and 384-well microplates.

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)

SpectraMax® M5 MultiMode Microplate Reader Features:

  • Dual monochromators allow users to target the optimal assay excitation and emission wavelengths and eliminate the need to change expensive band pass filters between experiments.
  • Dual photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) provide detection flexibility to the widest variety of assays.
  • Reference diodes automatically adjust to slight fluctuations in excitation intensity to reduce measurement noise.
  • Absorbance applications are enhanced using top-quality UV grade fibers to provide strong light transmission in the lowest wavelengths.
