The Promega GloMax Microplate Multimode Reader gives users a flexible, easy to use instrument that’s customizable to fit the laboratory needs and ready to go right out of the box. This modular multimode reader has the execution of a single-mode instrument, but uses dedicated optic channels per technology, ensuring highly sensitive readings and avoiding data loss from indirect fiber-optics transmission. The Promega GloMax Multi Plus Plate Reader from Promega is simple to set up, with windows based, color touchscreen selection on it’s built in computer. Users can either set up a new protocol on this multimode microplate reader through the protocol wizard tool, choose from preloaded protocols, perfect for assays that are repeated often, or have total instrument control when complete customization is needed. Users can even save their set ups for future use.  

The Glomax Mutli Plus microplate reader comes with absorbance, fluorescence and luminescence modules installed. The Luminescence module works well for Steady-Glo Luciferase assays, Flash-Glow Luciferase Assays, Cell Viability/ATP assays, Calcium and Kinetic Assays.  Absorbance module can be used for ELISA, DNA/RNA Quantitation, Protein Quantitation, BCA Protein Assay, Bradford, Coomassie Blue, PeroXOquant quantitative peroxide assay and Lowry Protein Assays.  The Fluorescence module is ideal for Nucleotide Labeling, Protein Labeling, Cytotoxicity, Cell Viability, Gene Expression, Enzyme Activity and much more. 

The Promega GloMax Multi Microplate Reader comes with a customizable, wide dynamic range, absorbance module and a top reading fluorescence module with easily exchangeable optical kits. This microplate reader is capable of luminescence with the purchase of a Luminescence module, sold separately. Instillation of modules is quick and easy, and can be done right in the lab, without requiring additional software. The module is automatically detected.  Data from this multimode microplate reader can be exported easily via USB and then analyzed where ever is most convenient. This microplate reader accepts 96-well plates and comes with a single auto injector, with a volume range of 25-200 µl in 5 µl increments. The set-up wizard controls the auto injector giving users the ability to prime and flush for easy maintenance as well as reverse purge to reclaim costly reagents.
