Focus On Absorbance Measurements in a Microplate Reader

BMG LABTECH is currently the only microplate reader manufacturer that incorporates an ultra-fast, CCD-based spectrometer in its microplate readers for UV-Vis absorbance measurements. Being able to capture a full spectrum from 220 to 1000 nm in less than one second per well, the spectrometer allows absorbance assays that are not possible in a microplate reader with only a monochromator. Most absorbance assays will benefit from full spectrum analysis, it allows for the optimal wavelength(s) to be chosen in each assay and it allows for references to be taken for data normalization.
