Microplate readers are key tools in genomic research, learn here how they help answer your questions on nucleic acids: concentration, interaction with other nucleic acids or proteins, single nucleotide polymorphisms and gene expression.

Genomics – the study of the complete genome of an organism, its contents, structures, functions, and evolution – is a multidisciplinary and essential part of modern biology.  Nextgen Sequencing and SNP-genotyping are popular tools for genomic research but the field is also closely associated with transcription and translation investigating proteins and expression levels, both to directly inform studies but also as part of analysis workflows such as next generation sequencing (NGS).

BMG LABTECH offers a range of microplate readers able to quantify DNA, RNA and protein efficiently and in high throughput, using any commercially available kit format. Depending on the project, absorbance, fluorescence, or luminescence measurements may be appropriate, and BMG LABTECH’s microplate readers are available as single or multi-mode instruments.
