The Absorbance 96 is a uniquely designed microplate reader for assays in 96-well format. By far the most compact reader on the market, the footprint of the reader is almost as small as the microplate itself. Despite its form, the Absorbance  96  delivers precise  and accurate results at an affordable price. Together with the Byonoy proprietary software, the Absorbance 96 is ideal for a variety of applications, extending from ELISA, to protein- and cell-based assays.

Main features and benefits of the Absorbance 96 Reader:

  • Space-saving design
  • Fast readout speed
  • Reliable measurement results  
  • Intuitive operation
  • Maintenance-free
  • Affordable price

Compactness: Our technological solu-tion enables us to build the Absor-bance 96 in a unique compactness, with a footprint of about one microplate. Our vision was to develop a reader that meets the needs of the user and gives him the advantages of complete flexibi-lity. The Absorbance 96 fits into any lab and saves valuable bench space. It can be easily transported within the laboratory and also between different laboratories. This makes it  the perfect analytic tool for those, who want to explore new possibilities.

Usability: Our goal was to develop a reader, that simplifies the workflow in the laboratory. The unique open design in combination with the small size of the reader leads to a new user experience and an improved handling. Another distinctive feature of the Absorbance 96 is its clear design and reduced complexity. To operate the reader, only the USB connection to the computer is needed. Once the reader is connected via plug-and-play to the computer it is controlled intuitively with the complementary user software.

Performance: The Absorbance 96 is the first reader with 96 detection units on the market. Thanks to the innovative technological system without scanning mechanics, the Absorbance 96 enables fast photometric measurements and reliable, high quality results. The im-plemented LED-technology is free of maintenance requirements. With the four-channel LED-optic the read out of a variety of different assays is possible.
