SPECTROstar Nano

BMG LABTECH’s innovative absorbance microplate reader has the flexibility to perform assays quickly and easily in both microplates or via the built-in cuvette port.

This spectrometer-based absorbance microplate reader captures a full UV/visible spectrum in less than 1 sec/well. Its speed, simple push button operation, and capacity to store individual assay protocols make the SPECTROstar® Nano the leading microplate reader for absorbance measurements
