Bio-Rad offers two versions of the economical Model 680 microplate reader, the standard model and the Model 680 XR reader, which offers an expanded detection range (UV to near-IR wavelengths).

With both models, onboard software provides secure user log-in, protocol and data storage, curve-fit and reporting functions.

Preprogrammed protocol and reporting functions for Bio-Rad’s TSE (transmissible spongiform encephalopathy, such as BSE) kits and the Checkmark™ installation qualification/operational qualification (IQ/OQ) validation kit are also available with both onboard and PC software packages.

An onboard graphical thermal printer and precision temperature control are factory options for both readers.
