Did you know that there are eight different detection modes in BMG LABTECH microplate readers?

Microplate readers have evolved from simple single-mode instruments that can only do a handful of applications in one mode, to complex multimode instruments that can measure thousands of different assays in several modes. Most applications use the three most common detection modes of absorbance, fluorescence intensity, and luminescence and these are the three most common detection modes found multimode microplate readers. Whereas higher end multimode instrumentation can perform applications that are based on specialized chemistry using other detection modes such as AlphaScreen®, Fluorescence Polarization, Time-Resolved Fluorescence (TRF)TR-FRET/HTRF®, and Nephelometry

Light-Scattering or nephelometry is a specialized detection mode that can be used
to measure drug solubility in the NEPHELOstar Plus microplate reader.
