Microplate Readers and Washers
Standalone microplate readers and washers are a great way to enable the introduction and adoption of ELISA assays into any routine clinical or research lab. In the early life of an IVD ELISA is a popular technology platform to serve a broad customer base. ELISA is scaleable and can be adopted by any laboratory with a low cost investment in instrumentation.
Micrplate readers enable the qualitative, semi-quantitative and quantitatve analysis of a multitude of analytes and can be used to measure the absorbance of end-point reactions as well as kinetic reactions. They offer a wide range of data reduction capabilities too, taking the strain out of data reduction and complex calculations which can be cumbersome and time consuming.
Microplate washers are sometimes considered a luxury, but in order to ensure maximum performance of your assay you should consider an automated microplate washer. Using a dedicated micrplate washer for your ELISAs helps optimise performance of your assays by applying precise, consistent and uniform washing to each and every well, and by minimising the residual volumes of wash buffer in the washed microplate. The benefit being low CVs and better quality results.
