Microplate Readers for Life Science

Multimode, Luminescence, Fluorescence, Visible Absorbance, and UV-Visible Absorbance

Turner BioSystems' History in Microplate Readers

For over 30 years, Turner BioSystems has provided sensitive instruments for Life Science applications. Producing affordable, easy-to-use microplate readers that meet the Scientific Communities’ stringent performance requirements continues to make Turner BioSystems the perfect choice for plate readers throughout the world. Find the right instrument for your laboratory by using our microplate reader comparison chart.

Multimode Microplate Readers

Turner BioSystems Multimode Microplate Readers are skillfully designed for today’s life science laboratory. In addition to having performance on par with single-mode instruments, both Modulus™ Microplate Readers blend user-friendly operation with easy data handling and flexible purchasing options. The results of these designs are instruments with superior performance that are easy to use, are affordable, and can be customized to your laboratory’s needs.


Modulus II Multimode Microplate Reader

6, 12, 24, 48, 96, and 384-well plates

The NEW Modulus™ II Multimode Microplate Reader accepts 6, 12, 24, 48, 96, and 384-well plates conforming to the SBS plate standard. This plate reader will measure luminescence, fluorescence, visible absorbance, and UV-visible absorbance and comes standard with a linear and orbital shaking feature. Heating capabilities can be purchased as an option. Unlike the Modulus Multimode Microplate Reader (below), the Modulus II Microplate Reader includes a one-of-a-kind protocol composer that makes setting up a custom protocol easy. Simply drag and drop any number of parameters into the protocol menu and press start.

Modulus Multimode Microplate Reader
96-well plates

The Modulus™ Multimode Microplate Reader accepts 96-well plates conforming to the SBS plate standard. This plate reader will measure luminescence, fluorescence, and visible absorbance. Assay set-up is effortless with several flexible set-up options to choose from

Luminescence Microplate Readers – DLR Ready

Veritas Microplate Luminometer
96-well plates

The Veritas™ Microplate Luminometer is a state-of-the-art instrument that meets the requirement for high sensitivity and broad dynamic range that is necessary for chemiluminescent and bioluminescent applications. With optional Single or Dual Auto Injectors, the Veritas™ Microplate Luminometer is a versatile luminescence system capable of performing both flash and glow-type luminescent assays.

Modulus II Multimode Microplate Reader with Luminescence Module
6, 12, 24, 48, 96, and 384-well plates

The Modulus™ II Multimode Microplate Reader with the Luminescence Module is designed to deliver performance equivalent to dedicated microplate luminometers while also offering the flexibility of a multimode reader. To achieve sensitivity on par with that of a dedicated luminometer, the luminescence channel is separated from other measurement technologies and positioned directly above the sample well. These conditions maximize light capture for the best possible sensitivity. In conjunction, a low-noise photomultiplier tube ensures that collected light is not compromised in any way. This design makes the Modulus™ II Microplate Reader between 10 to 1000 times more sensitive than competing multimode luminometers. In addition to high sensitivity, this instrument boasts greater than 8 logs of dynamic range, eliminating the need to dilute samples or manage detector-driven gain changes. To achieve this extra large reading range, the Modulus™ II Microplate Reader is capable of simultaneously measuring samples of varying brightness. The photomultiplier tube automatically adjusts for the optimum reading of bright or dim samples. This means that the Modulus™ II Microplate Reader is capable of achieving a reading range of 2 – 3 logs more than competing multimode luminometers.

Fluorescence Microplate Readers

Modulus II Multimode Microplate Reader with Fluorescence Module
6, 12, 24, 48, 96, and 384-well plates

The Modulus™ II Multimode Microplate Reader with the Fluorescence Module (user installable) is designed to deliver both high performance and user flexibility. To achieve high performance, the Modulus™ II Microplate Fluorescence Module uses an epifluorescent design to ensure a consistent measurement position. This pinpointed approach reduces the impact of volume fluctuation within small samples by reliably measuring at the same position from well to well. The Fluorescence Module accepts different Fluorescence Optical Kits for measuring a variety of fluorophores. Four standard optical kits are available to measure the most popular fluorophores including Hoechst dye, fluorescein, rhodamine, Cy3, and Cy5. In addition, custom optical kits can be readily made for non-standard applications. Optical kits can be easily exchanged in seconds and built-in software ensures that the installed optical kit matches the selected application protocol. Protocols for nucleic acids and proteins such as PicoGreen®, RiboGreen®, and Quant-iT™ assays are preprogrammed into the Modulus™ II Microplate Reader for your convenience. The Fluorescence Module is designed as a user-installable module. This means that you can either buy the Fluorescence Module now or add it to your system later when your lab is ready to run fluorescence experiments.

Absorbance Microplate Readers – Visible Absorbance

Modulus II Multimode Microplate Reader with Visible Absorbance Module
6, 12, 24, 48, 96, and 384-well plates

The Modulus™ II Microplate Reader with a Visible Absorbance Module (user installable) provides measurements that are highly sensitive and cover a wide dynamic range. In addition, it is easy to run ratiometric absorbance-based assays to adjust for optical imperfections or to assess DNA purity. Simply use the color touch screen to select two desired wavelengths. The instrument has an easy-to-read screen that displays Optical Density (OD) values for each wavelength or a ratio of two wavelengths.

Visible Absorbance Module (400 - 800 nm)
The Visible Absorbance Module has a reading range of 0 - 5.0 OD with an accuracy that deviates less than 2%. This module comes with four factory-installed filters for measuring 450, 560, 600, and 750 nm. These filters accommodate the most common ELISA and protein assays. Additionally, you can customize the module by inserting a filter of your choice into either of two removable filter paddles.

UV-Visible Absorbance Module (200 - 1100 nm)
The UV-Visible Absorbance Module has a reading range of 0 - 4.0 OD with an accuracy that deviates less than 2%. This module comes with a 6-position filter wheel that includes filters for measuring 260, 280, 450, 560, 600, and 750 nm. These filters accommodate UV DNA and protein quantitation in addition to ELISA and protein assays. Like the Visible Absorbance Module, you can customize the UV-Visible Absorbance Module by substituting a filter of your choice into either of two removable filter paddles.
