SPECTROstar Nano – Microplate reader
BMG LABTECH’s state-of-the-art absorption microplate reader has the flexibility to perform tests quickly and easily in either sample or via the integrated cuvette port. This spectrometer-based absorption microplate reader captures the entire UV/visible spectrum in less than 1 second/well. Speed, simple push-button operation and the ability to store individual test protocols make SPECTROstar ® Nano the leading microplate reader for absorbance measurements.
SPECTROstar Nano is equipped with BMG LABTECH’s ultra-fast UV/vis spectrometer, which allows users to measure absorbance (220 – 1000 nm) in less than 1 second per well. It is the ideal tool for reading all absorbance tests in a single plate or cuvette – with many common test procedures predefined and available with just one click.
