Molecular Devices does NOT provide any technical support when contacted for help
Application Area:Chemical Biology
"The SpectraMax M5 is easy to use but when it starts giving errors when loading the manufacture does not provide any technical support. When contacted, the only answer we receive is to ship back the instrument for repair. This is not an easy task especially when living outside the US."

Organization: University of Colorado, Denver
Application Area:Measure the absorbance/fluorescence of the sample.
"The instrument is very user friendly and very accurately reads the absorbance or fluorescence of the liquid sample or suspension. Needs to make sure that the readout from the test sample falls within the linear range."
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 possesses the five modes preferred by the majority of our users providing the benefit of multiple detection modes in one platform.
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.
