SpectraMax M-Series Multi-Mode Microplate Readers
Your applications, your modes, your choice
Key Features
• Upgradeable platform for
changing lab needs
• Three-mode cuvette port
for assay development
• Dual monochromator
tunability
• Automated absorbance
pathlength correction
The SpectraMax® M3, M4, M5 and M5e Multi-Mode
Microplate Readers are a modular, upgradeable dualmonochromator microplate reader platform offering a
wide range of high performance multi-mode capabilities
ideal for life science research and drug discovery
screening. Choose from a three- (M3), four- (M4), or
five- (M5/M5e) mode reader customized to your specific
applications or budgetary needs, while optional capabilities
allow you to upgrade with other detection modes at a
later time. All configurations offer a triple-mode cuvette
port, accurate temperature control, microplate shaking
and comprehensive data management using our SoftMax®
Pro Microplate Data Acquisition and Analysis Software.
Detection modes include:
• Endpoint, kinetic, spectral
and well-scanning
• UV-Visible Absorbance (Abs)
• Comprehensive data
analysis
• Luminescence (Lum)
• Validation and compliance
• Fluorescence Polarization (FP)
• Robotics compatibility
• Fluorescence Intensity (FI)
• Time-Resolved Fluorescence (TRF)
The SpectraMax M5e Reader offers the additional
benefit of being certified for Cisbio Bioassays’ HTRF®
technology.
Dual monochromators for assay flexibility
With SpectraMax Multi-Mode Readers, there is no need
to utilize expensive filters to optimize detection levels
and background. The optical systems use two scanning
monochromators so the user can determine optimal
excitation and emission settings, resulting in assay
performance similar to that of dedicated single-mode
readers.
Patented pathlength correction for
better absorbance accuracy
Only Molecular Devices microplate plate readers offer
the capability to measure the depth (optical pathlength)
of samples with no temperature dependency using the
patented PathCheck® Sensor technology. With SoftMax
Pro Software, the PathCheck Sensor automatically
normalizes the well absorbance. This eliminates the
need for standard curves, and, for compounds with
known absorptive properties, enables users to calculate
concentrations directly from absorbance.
Five-mode microplate reading with superior optics
Unique optical characteristics
Assay collaboration for ease-of-setup
1. Reference diodes enable elimination of measurement noise
due to slight fluctuations in excitation light intensity.
Molecular Devices has collaborated with various assay partners to optimize and
validate homogeneous and heterogeneous biochemical- or cell-based assay
performance on the SpectraMax platform. To support these assays, we provide
application notes as well as ready-to-run protocols in our SoftMax Pro Software.
Some of our featured partner assays include HTRF assays from Cisbio Bioassays and
LanthaScreen® TR-FRET assays from Invitrogen (now part of Life Technologies).
2. Angled emission beam improves signal-to-noise,
especially in narrow Stokes shift fluorophores, by
reducing stray light.
3. Elliptical mirrors are used instead of lenses for
maximum transmission with minimal wavelength
distortion.

4. Top-quality UV-grade fibers give the highest light
transmission down to even the lowest wavelengths.
