Microplate Reader Assays

Whether you are working on basic research, assay development, or high-throughput screening, you need accurate data you can trust, every time. Our multimode microplate readers, Alpha®, LANCE® Ultra TR-FRET, DELFIA® TRF, and Luminescence assays and microplates provide excellent sensitivity and performance, and can help you save time and headaches. We offer a wide range of biochemical and cell-based screening assays, all of which are validated on our microplate readers, so you can be confident that you will get reliable results, service and support.

For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

Drug Discovery Reagents

Drug discovery is a complex, costly and time-consuming undertaking. For research scientists, screening potential candidates is where the journey begins.

Your job is to move from target to hit to candidate quickly and efficiently – with as little wasted resources as possible. Our drug discovery screening reagents do just that. Whether you are doing high throughput screening or focused screening, we offer a wide range of validated reagents and kits in Alpha chemiluminescent, LANCE® TR-FRET, DELFIA® TRF, and other assay technologies to suit you screening assay needs.

Accelerate your workflow with our drug discovery screening reagents while getting consistent, accurate and physiologically relevant results.

A microplate is a critical part of your discovery process. Microplates have the capability to generate valuable, information-rich data that bring great insights into discovery screening.

Microplate planarity and inaccurate data collection are common issues caused by microplates that are not carefully designed for the unique challenges of sample screening which can result in missed data points, sample re-screening, missed project timelines, and ultimately higher costs.

Drawing on many years of experience in high throughput screening, our expert team has developed microplates that address the most common screening challenges. Our microplates have been engineered to deliver the highest quality data for high throughput screening as well as imaging applications.​
