SpectraMax M Series

Patented AutoPMT Optimization System

  • The patented AutoPMT optimization system adjusts the fluorescence detector to each sample well’s concentration and normalizes the raw data, extending the dynamic range of assays so that low, medium, and high signals can be captured from the same plate.

Patented PathCheck Pathlength Measurement Technology

  • Offers the capability to measure the depth (optical pathlength) of samples in a temperature independent manner using the patented PathCheck® Technology. With SoftMax Pro® Software, the PathCheck Technology automatically normalizes the well absorbance.

SpectraTest® ABS1, FL1, and LM1 Validation Plates for hardware validation of absorbance, fluorescence, and luminescence modes

Automating with Ease

  • Offers seamless integration with the StakMax® Stacker, Molecular Devices’ own integrated microplate stacker designed exclusively for SpectraMax Microplate Readers and AquaMax®Microplate Washers.
