Incorporates powerful performance at a price much lower than traditional fluorescence-luminescence microplate readers.

The FLx800™ Multi-Detection Microplate Reader combines excellent specifications and performance with convenience and ease of use. This design incorporates powerful performance at a price much lower than traditional fluorescence-luminescence microplate readers. The FLx800 line includes several models with options that meet the specific needs of research and OEM users. Top and bottom reading are available to read anything from 6-well to 384-well microplates, and PCR plates. An optional external dispenser module allows you to run applications such as ion channel assays and flash luminescence assays (e.g. luciferase, ATP).
