LogPhase 600 Microbiology Reader Measures Microbial Growth Curves in Multiple Microplates

June 9, 2020

BioTek unveils a unique class of microplate readers with the new LogPhase 600 Microbiology Reader. The LogPhase 600 is the only four-plate microplate reader purpose-built to perform microbial growth curve analysis. Multiple plate measurements increase throughput and reduce the need for multiple costly single-plate absorbance readers that take up valuable bench space. At the same time, highly consistent environmental conditions support high quality absorbance results without growth curve artifacts, even in bacterial and yeast assays with extended incubation periods.
