Microplate readers are a mainstay in biopharmaceutical and academic research labs pursuing drug discovery, bioassay validation, quality control, and the manufacturing processing in general. They can be used to rapidly detect and measure microbial growth and other contaminants, as well as key compounds and proteins that might affect the safety, quality, or taste of food products.

In this eBook from Molecular Devices, learn how the SpectraMax microplate absorbance readers and SoftMax Pro Software can improve the quality and ensure the safety of beer, wine, and food, all while saving you time and effort.
