Get the best out of your microplate reader: Recommendations for use

Webinar Date
  • Wed February 28, 2024
    10:00 AM 1 hour

It can be challenging to understand the different settings that can be adjusted on a microplate reader and their effect on your data.

In this webinar, BMG LABTECH Application Specialists Martin Mangold, Ph.D., and Ann-Cathrin Volz, Ph.D. will discuss the impact of the different microplate reader settings, provide empirical evidence of their effect on data quality, and highlight strategies and approaches to optimise microplate reader parameters.

A particular focus will be set on the optimisation of cell-based assays with additional tips beyond plate reader settings.

By attending this webinar, you will discover:

  • Which settings are available in the setup of a microplate reader protocol.
  • What impact these parameters have on the microplate reader output.
  • How to optimise these reader settings to improve data quality.
  • How to optimise the measurement of cell-based assays on microplate readers.

About the event speakers: 

Ann-Cathrin Volz works as Application Specialist for BMG LABTECH with a specific focus on cell-based assays. 

After her graduation in Nutritional Sciences at the University of Hohenheim, Germany, she completed her PhD and a Postdoc in the field of Tissue Engineering. 

In her position, she can draw on her experience in cell culture and related microplate-based assays to support customers in assay optimisation for existing and emerging applications. 

Martin Mangold also works as an Application Specialist for BMG LABTECH. His focus is on biochemical assays and interaction studies. 

During his doctoral studies in pharmaceutical chemistry at the University of Bonn, Germany, he screened for specific inhibitors of enzymatic activity, which also included cell culture work, protein and antibody expression, and purification.

He now uses this knowledge to support BMG LABTECH customers in optimising their results.
