The vision behind the Absorbance 96 was to give the user complete flexibility. The result is a uniquely designed, solid state microplate reader with 96 detection units.
Being portable and by far the most compact reader on the market, the Absorbance 96 constitutes an exciting new category of plate reader.
The World’s Most Compact Plate Reader
One of the main ideas behind the Absorbance 96 is to simplify the workflow in the laboratory. The small size of the reader, in combination with the unique open design, leads to an entirely new user experience. A simple USB connection provides both the power supply and access to the analysis software via plug-and-play.
Take the Lab into Your Hands
The Absorbance 96 is the only truly portable plate reader in the world. Easily transported within or between different laboratories, the Absorbance 96 gives you complete flexibility. In the often-crowded setting of the modern laboratory, the Absorbance 96 helps decentralizing important workflows, increasing access to instrumentation and bringing readout to your workspace.

Maintenance-free Solid State Design
The Absorbance 96 is the first microplate reader on the market to contain 96 individual detection units. Without the need to scan across multiple wells, the Absorbance 96 requires no moving parts. In combination with long-life LEDs, the solid-state technology provides a maintenance-free user experience and ensures reliable, high quality results.

"The mini-plate reader is a must have for any lab. I can't stress what incredible value this piece of equipment is. It [...] has the same footprint as a large iPhone, is super easy to use, and the company is 1000% behind their products."
"My small team relies on the Absorbance 96 reader for reproducible, precise absorbance measurements. We have found multiple applications for the Absorbance 96 in our workflow."
"As the standard microplate reader has a large footprint and can only be utilised in a laboratory, the portable Absorbance 96 requiring only a USB connection is much more practical in an outfield setting. Since then, we have recommended it to several of our collaborators."
"This product was the perfect solution as the robust software is included without licensing fees and allows me to perform development activities without the great cost of some other plate readers due to their intended use in GxP environments."
"This instrument is very easy to set up and use. Plug it into a computer, install software on computer, put the plate in, press a button, and you have OD readings. Very little setup involved and very easy to use. Very small instrument footprint as well which is especially helpful for us."
Your Assay, Your Reader
ELISAs - PNPP, ABTS, OPD, TMB
Protein assays - Bradford, BCA, Lowry
Cell-based assays - MTT, XTT, Cell density
Despite its compact form, the Absorbance 96 delivers precise and accurate results at an affordable price. The solid state design enables simultaneous signal detection, resulting in extremely fast photometric measurements. A range of 400–1000 nm allows for a wide variety of wavelength combinations for both endpoint and kinetic assays.
