Instrument uses the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).
Camera, computer, and digital storage are connected to the instrument.
"The patented multichannel optical design of the SpectraMax® 340PC384 Absorbance Microplate Reader mimics a dual beam spectrophotometer, measures each sample in the plate directly, and eliminates measurement error due to variations in light output between optical fibers on other instruments for more reliable data reporting. The eight-channel system delivers both high precision and speed when reading 96- and 384-well microplates for endpoint measurements, kinetic assays, and spectral scans."
