Plate Based Assays

Cell- or plate-based assays are an important and commonly used experimental biology research tool that allows the assessment of cell health after experimental treatment or manipulation.

Assays are performed in microtiter plates and are designed to assess biological, chemical or physical events of samples. These assays are widely used in research, drug discovery, bioassay validation, quality control and manufacturing processes in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries and academic organisations. Common detection modes for microplate assays are absorbance, fluorescence intensity, luminescence, time-resolved fluorescence, and fluorescence polarisation.


Multi-Mode microplate readers offer flexibility and ease of use over a broad range of applications. Configurability is an important aspect of BioTek's multi-mode readers to provide the most value for laboratory budgets. Synergy and Cytation readers offer modular features and outstanding specifications for performance and economy.
