High-speed 8-channel filter-based absorbance

The ELx808™ Absorbance Microplate Reader provides the flexibility to manipulate and analyze your data. This multi-channel reader continues BioTek's tradition of offering the tightest specifications of any microplate reader - precise, accurate and repeatable. The ELx808 on-board diagnostic self-test and calibration test plate make it easy to confirm and document reader performance. All calculations are performed automatically. Combined with our history of quality hardware engineering, the ELx808 sets the standard for microplate readers.

As a stand-alone microplate reader, the ELx808 is designed for applications within the following areas:

  • Agricultural
  • Biotechnology research
  • Cell biology
  • Cell counting
  • Cell proliferation
  • Clinical
  • ELISA
  • Environmental
  • Food processing
  • Kinetic ELISA
  • LAL
  • Neuroscience
