Perfect for Everyday Use

As technology advances, scientific instruments are evolving form bulky and complicated equipment to compact and simple devices. Enzo is proud to be part of the new, revolutionized, personalized plate reader. The Absorbance 96 Plate Reader is a personal 96-well format microplate reader that can be used for a variety of applications including ELISAs, protein quantification assays, cell-based assays, and more.


At just 900 grams, the Absorbance 96 is by far

the lightest reader on the market.
Absorbance 96 Plate Reader

A Plate Reader for Every Bench

The Absorbance 96 is a uniquely designed microplate reader for assays in 96-well format. By far the most compact reader on the market, the footprint of the reader is almost as small as the plate itself.

Application Note

Benchmark Analysis of Novel Portable Absorbance Microplate Reader

No significant performance differences were found between the personal Absorbance 96 Plate Reader and standard benchtop microplate reader devices.
The Absorbance 96 works excellent with a broad range of Enzo’s ELISA kits. The design philosophy results in a highly-portable, versatile, and maintenance-free plate reader for ELISA and other absorbance-based cell and biochemical assays.

The Absorbance 96 shows similar performance as benchtop plate readers. Complete information can be found in the Application Note.
Personal Plate Reader

Maintenance-free Solid State Design

The Absorbance 96 is the first personal microplate reader on the market. It contains 96 individual detection units. This means that all wells can be read simultaneously - in parallel - allowing for extremely fast photometric measurements. Without the need to scan across multiple wells, the Absorbance 96 has no moving parts. In combination with long-life LEDs, this solid-state design provides a maintenance-free user experience and ensures reliable, high quality results.

  • 96 detection units for fast reading
  • Four-channel LED-optics
  • No scanning mechanics
  • Maintenance-free
Powerfull Personal Plate Reader

Compatible with a Wide Variety of Assays

The Absorbance 96 Plate Reader is designed to run everyday assays with ease and speed. The four standard filters – 405, 450, 492, 620 nm – allow for a wide variety of ELISAs such as PNPP, ABTS, OPD and TMB. Other filter combinations for protein (Bradford or BCA), cell-based (MTT, XTT), or cell density assays can also be provided.
