GloMax® plate readers can be used to measure a variety of detection modes, including luminescence, fluorescence and absorbance assays. Manuela and her team use luminescence primarily. They use assays such as our Bio-Glo™, Nano-Glo®, CellTiter-Glo™ and CytoTox-Glo™ products.
The Cell Manufacturing team uses the GloMax® Discover plate reader for a number of reasons. Not only is the instrument very intuitive, with an easy-to-use interface, it is also one of the most sensitive instruments on the market. Manuela’s team has multiple GloMax® plate readers and has also found that the data they get from reader to reader is very consistent. Plus, the high sensitivity and wide dynamic range make it easy to get good data even from samples with very low luminescence.
