A microplate reader is a device that can simultaneously measure the absorbance of multiple samples injected into a microplate. The number of samples depends on the number of wells in the microplate, but generally dozens or more samples can be measured simultaneously, greatly improving work efficiency. They are used for research and quantification in chemistry and biology, most often for protein quantification. While they are expected to improve work efficiency, they have the disadvantage of being prone to errors due to the small amount of samples being measured.
microplate readers are used in the fields of chemistry and biology to quantify proteins and measure cell growth rates. Other applications include concentration measurement using chromogenic reaction and fluorescence polarization, which can be done safely without the use of radioactive materials. They are mainly used when handling a large number of samples at once, contributing to improved work efficiency and reduced workload for researchers. In addition, absorbance measurements often require pretreatment, and in many cases, reactions are performed in microplates.
microplate readers are capable of absorbance measurement and fluorescence measurement, each of which has different measurement principles, features, and precautions.
