Molecular Devices SpectraMax M5 microplate reader package

Manufacturer: Molecular Devices

Model: SpectraMax M5

Condition: Excellent. Fully functional.  Tested 

Status: Pre-owned

Estimated lead time:  3-5 days

The Molecular Devices Spectramax M5 Multi-Mode Plate Reader brings you the power and precision of a dedicated single mode plate reader, but with the space saving flexibility of 5 detection modes in one unit. This microplate reader handles Absorbance, Fluorescence Intensity, luminescence, Time resolved fluorescence, fluorescence polarization, HTRF, and comes with 140 pre-programmed protocols to get you up and running fast. This microplate reader has a wavelength range of 200–1000 nm, uses two monochromators, allowing users to choose their optimal emission or excitation and eliminating the need to change filters. The SpectraMax M5 covers formats from cuvettes to 6-, 12-, 24-, 48-, 96-, and 384-well microplates and incorporates a triple-mode cuvette port, accurate temperature control, and microplate shaking.
