The Molecular Devices ThermoMax is an efficient, temperature-regulated, 96 well microplate reader. With various on-board features and capabilities, the ThermoMax is ideal for use in modern laboratories involved in many applications.

The ThermoMax performs automatic mixing before a reading and between readings to ensure reliable and precise results. The Microsoft Windows-based software guarantees smooth operation as it includes single and dual wavelength read, kinetic readings, automix (shake), endpoints, blank patterns, as well as curve fits.

The ThermoMax microplate reader provides thermal control and vertical shake, perfect for kinetic readings involving growth curves at 5 seconds per plate. The system can perform readings in a photometric analysis mode as well as kinetic analysis at user-configurable kinetic ranges and intervals, run on-board and temperature regulation diagnostics.
