Evaluating microplate readers doesn’t have to be overwhelming. First, consider your application needs. If your budget is modest, a single-mode reader dedicated to your main application may be the most logical choice. If you are working with, or anticipate exploring, a greater variety of applications, a multi-mode reader would be the better choice.
The three most common read modes in a single-mode microplate reader are absorbance, fluorescence, and luminescence, making them a good starting point. However, an upgradeable multi-mode reader can address all your future lab needs.
