Molecular Devices has introduced the SpectraMax M5, a five-mode multi-detection microplate reader, and the latest addition to the company’s SpectraMax product line.
The M5 has primary applications for fluorescence intensity, absorbance, luminescence, time-resolved fluorescence, and fluorescence polarization assays. The instrument features a triple-mode cuvette port and single-read command capability for experiments requiring multiple detection parameters, MD said. The system features wavelengths between 200 nm and 1000 nm, and uses standard microplates.
The instrument also uses SoftMax Pro Enterprise data acquisition and analysis software. MD said that the system is well-suited for ELISA, nucleic acid, protein quantitation, enzymatic, cell viability, and cell proliferation assays.
