What is the difference between a Life Science microplate reader and a High-Throughput Screening (HTS) microplate reader
Life science instruments, on the other hand, are designed to measure 6- to 96- well microplates. Most life science instruments can still measure 384- or 1536-well microplates, but they are designed for lower density formats. HTS instruments are also designed to measure microplates faster than life science readers, in order to increase throughput.
Most assays and applications can be measured on both categories of instruments, but HTS microplate readers usually have a lower limit of detection, therefore lower concentrations can be used.
