 Plate reading to results in minutes


Many microplate reader software interfaces are multi-purpose and can be complex to program for reading parameters and data analysis. BioTek’s Quantitative Assay Apps provide the tools you need for a simplified, streamlined experience.


10-second plate map definition

Say goodbye to cumbersome plate mapping! The Quantitative Assay Apps are specifically designed to make plate map definition easy. A few clicks and 10 seconds is all it takes.


 Automatic curve fitting

Curve fits are pre-programmed in the Quantitative Assay Apps. Define the plate map, read the plate and the standard curve is automatically plotted so you can see your final results in the shortest amount of time.

Normalization & target volume calculation

Typical microplate reader software produces a final protein concentration. The Quantitative Assay Apps calculateadditional metrics including normalization factors and volumes; ready for downstream assays such as western blots.


 Easy data export

Export your data to a spreadsheet for further analysis or results documentation as needed for your laboratory’s workflow.
