ELISA readers are an essential tool in many laboratories

ELISA readers have become a commodity in most laboratories. ELISA assays combine the specificity of an antibody with the sensitivity of enzyme assays giving rise to a wide variety of applications including clinical, forensic and food research. ELISA readers can also be used to quantify many other types of colorimetric assays including protein quantification using the classic Lowry, Bradford or BCA methods.

For ELISA and other colorimetric applications, the Apollo 11 is the ELISA reader of choice.


Reliable ELISA results

Precise mechanics, quality optics and auto-control guarantee an excellent repeatability of measurements. In addition, the Apollo 11 ELISA Reader performs auto-check and auto-calibration of the optics and electronics before every measurement. Like all Berthold Technologies instruments the Apollo 11 is delivered to your laboratory validated against a QC test plate. With this validation you can work with confidence knowing that you will receive accurate, traceable and comparable results.

Long-life LED light source

Expensive lamp replacements and resulting downtimes belong in the past. Our ELISA reader uses long-life LEDs as a light source ensuring the instrument is ready to read a plate at any time.

Convenient Software options for ELISA and more

The Apollo 11 ELISA Reader is equipped with PhotoRead, an intuitive and easy to use software that meets many different application needs. For users requiring curve fitting or other advanced features, the optional MikroWin software is also available. It offers:

  • Advanced curve fitting, including 4PL
  • Quantitative analysis with flexible threshold conditions
  • Additional plate formats: 12, 24 and 48-well, in addition to 96-well microplates.
  • Compliance with CFR 21 part 11
