Application Note: UV/VIS Spectroscopy in Microplates UV-Star, μClear, MICROLON and CELLSTAR
19 February 2024

Ultraviolet-visible (UV/VIS) spectroscopy is a classical analytical method for determining the chemical constitution of a substance and its concentration in aqueous solution. UV/VIS spectroscopy is usually conducted in quartz glass cuvettes. However, cuvettes do not provide sufficient throughput when dealing with large amounts of samples, and microplates can be used to speed up work. In this application note from Greiner Bio-One, learn about how transparent microplates (CELLSTAR®, MICROLON) or microplates with a clear film bottom (μClear®, UV-Star®) are frequently used in UV/VIS spectroscopy. UV/VIS is a subclass of spectroscopy which uses visible light and adjacent near ultraviolet (UV) ranges for the determination of the concentrations and the characterization of dissolved substances.
