Microplate Reader

Microplate readers, also known as microplate photometers, are instruments which are used to detect biological, chemical, or physical events of samples in microtiter plates. Marshall Scientific has a wide assortment of microplate readers, however our most popular are the Molecular Devices Spectramax Microplate Readers. The Molecular Devices Microplate Readers that we carry include: Versamax, Gemini, Gemini EM Fluorescence, Gemini XS, 190, 250, 340, and the 384 Plus. Most of our Molecular Devices Microplate Readers come with a computer with the preinstalled software necessary to run the machines (check product description to verify if preloaded computer is included). Please take a look at our inventory that is currently in stock and feel free to give us a call or send us an email if you have any questions.
