Discover how cell-based microplate assays advance your research: from viability to cell death mechanisms, from glycolysis to respiration, from lytic assays to live cell assays, from one to multiple assays.
Our microplate readers answer your questions on nucleic acids: concentration, interaction with other nucleic acids or proteins, single nucleotide polymorphisms and expression of genes.
The molecular processes underlying neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and dementia are still not fully understood. Plate readers can help to clarify these mechanisms, as well as to identify new drugs.
The complexity of life is based on chemical processes within organisms. Biochemistry studies these chemical reactions and our readers are the tools for your discoveries.
No communication and cellular reactions without signaling molecules. Our microplate readers can characterize cytokine, hormone, and second messenger changes.
Measuring thousands of wells in minutes, as it is needed for compound screens, requires extremely fast and sensitive instrumentation. Read why BMG LABTECH plate readers are heavily used in screening laboratories.
Whether you study viruses, bacteria, yeasts, or parasites. Here you can find out how well-suited BMG LABTECH plate readers are for all of them.
