SPECTROstar Nano

Absorbance plate reader with cuvette port

BMG LABTECH microplate reader SPECTROstar Nano from the front view

BMG LABTECH’s innovative absorbance microplate reader has the flexibility to perform assays quickly and easily in both microplates or via the built-in cuvette port. This spectrometer-based absorbance microplate reader captures a full UV/visible spectrum in less than 1 sec/well. Its speed, simple push button operation, and capacity to store individual assay protocols make the SPECTROstar® Nano the leading microplate reader for absorbance measurements.

SPECTROstar Nano

The SPECTROstar Nano is equipped with BMG LABTECH’s ultra-fast UV/vis spectrometer, which allows users to measure full-spectrum absorbance (220 – 1000 nm) in less than 1 second per well. It is the ideal instrument to read all absorbance assays in a microplate or cuvette – with many common assay protocols predefined and available at the click of the mouse.


  • High-speed absorbance measurements
  • Measurements in up to 1536-well plates
  • Integrated cuvette port
  • LVis Plate compatibility
  • Incubation up to 45 °C
  • Multiple shaking options
  • Well scanning with up to 900 data points per well


"One thing to point out is the wonderful ability to run a complete scan and then go in afterwards and select the peak areas and set wavelengths for analysis. We would not have seen the unique spectral shift in our dye-end point water hardness method using our older single wavelength instrument. The SPECTROstar Nano is making work and life easier, more unique and more interesting for us."
