Absorbance 96

a new category of plate reader

ELISA Reader – Absorbance 96SLAS New Product Award

The vision behind the Absorbance 96 was to give the user complete flexibility. The result is a uniquely designed, solid state microplate reader with 96 detection units.

Being portable and by far the most compact reader on the market, the Absorbance 96 constitutes an exciting new category of plate reader.

The World’s Most Compact Plate Reader

One of the main ideas behind the Absorbance 96 is to simplify the workflow in the laboratory. The small size of the reader, in combination with the unique open design, leads to an entirely new user experience. A simple USB connection provides both the power supply and access to the analysis software via plug-and-play. The footprint of the Absorbance 96 is almost as small as the microplate itself, thereby fitting into every lab, saving valuable bench space and providing unprecedented flexibility.

Engineering in Action


Protein assays - Bradford, BCA, Lowry

Cell-based assays - MTT, XTT, Cell density

Despite its compact form, the Absorbance 96 delivers precise and accurate results at an affordable price. Its portability enables on-site readout, eliminating the need for sample transport. A range of 405-650 nm allows for a wide variety of wavelength combinations for both endpoint and kinetic assays.
