The study of living things encompasses innumerable scientific subdisciplines. Learn here how microplate readers make a significant contribution in each and every one of these disciplines.

Biological research may comprise everything from molecules to ecosystems. It is remarkable that the microplate reader, a specialised analysis instrument, can be used in virtually every sub-discipline.

No matter if you aim to study a differentiation-related decrease of stem cell proliferation, want to study antioxidant capacity of edible plants, are looking for requirements of infectious bacteria or the immune response of whole organisms, microplate readers support all your needs. They are widely used in biological evaluation. A large proportion of the application revolves around everyday measurements like protein quantifications, enzymatic measurements  or cell viability evaluations. However, in advanced applications, microplate readers can also be used to determine single nucleotide polymorphisms or ligand receptor interaction studies.
