Great instrument for various colorimetric and fluorescence/luminescence assays
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area: ELISA, protein concentrations, fluorescence measurements

"We chose this machine after various vendor demos. Overall, the plate reader has a user-friendly interface and is easy to use. We also like the fact that the data can be easily exported into Excel and that you have the ability to choose what is exported. There is a great option to mask data that is off scale, so that it does not skew all the other data points. So far we are happy with the Neo2."
