Molecular Devices SpectraMax M2 Multi-Mode Microplate Reader System

This is a Pre-owned Molecular Devices SpectraMax M2 Multi-Mode Microplate Reader System.

System Includes:
  • Microplate Reader
  • Laptop
  • Software
  • Cables and connectors

The SpectraMax M2 and SpectraMax M2e from Molecular Devices are multi-detection microplate readers with dual-monochromators, dual-mode cuvette ports and top- and bottom-reading capability (top-reading only on SpectraMax M2). Detection modalities include absorbance (UV-Vis Abs) and fluorescence intensity (FI). The systems have optical performance comparable to a top-of-the-line dedicated spectrophotometer or spectrofluorometer and can read 6- to 384-well microplates. Endpoint, kinetic, spectrum and area-well scanning read types and the Molecular Devices PathCheck Sensor allow homogeneous and heterogeneous microplate assays to be performed in one flexible system. SpectraMax M2 readers provide for easy conversion and optimization of very-low-throughput to medium-high-throughput assays, faster, more precise results and reagent savings. In addition, combined absorbance and fluorescence intensity assays can be run by issuing a single read command.
