  • SpectraMax 190 Microplate Reader, Communication Cable, Copy SOFTmax Pro 4.3.1, 110 V power cable.
  • Laptop computer NOT inclued.

The SpectraMax®190 Microplate Reader from Molecular Devices is ideal for UV-Vis life science applications, especially DNA analysis. The multi-channel design truly mimics a dual-beam spectrophotometer. Each sample has a discrete sample beam and reference beam so that each well is measured directly, eliminating error due to variations in light output between the optic fibers. The system consists of eight sample beams and detectors and eight reference beams and detectors to deliver both superior precision and speed-of-reading across the microplate through 4.0 OD.


  • Tune in your performance for assays in UV/Vis spectrum
  • Eliminate the need for concentration curves with PathCheck Sensor
  • Ensure performance with validation tools
