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:
• UV-Visible Absorbance (Abs)
• Fluorescence Intensity (FI)
• Luminescence (Lum)
•T
ime-Resolved Fluorescence (TRF)
• Fluorescence Polarization (FP)
The SpectraMax M5e reader offers the additional benefit of being certified
for Cisbio Bioassays HTRF® technology.
Dual monochromators for assay flexibility
With SpectraMax M Series 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 Thermo
Fisher Scientific Inc.).
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.
