Biochrom EZ Read 2000 Microplate Reader

EZ Read 2000 is the best choice for laboratories that require a microplate reader that can be used for a range of absorbance applications. This versatile microplate reader is capable of measuring samples in many different microplate formats: 12-, 24-, 48- and 96-well plates. The EZ Read 2000 uses tuneable wavelength scanning so that any wavelength can be chosen from 340nm up to 800nm. The EZ Read 2000 is PC-controlled using new, intuitive Galapagos software for data acquisition and analysis.

Galapagos for EZ Read Software

  • Galapagos for EZ Read Software makes ‘Click and drag’ approach makes usability a key feature.
  • Easy to create new methods.
  • Select only the data you want for data reporting
  • So easy you won’t need to export your data into Excel.
  • Windows 7 & 8 compatibility as well as older Windows OS from XP. 

Key Features of EZ Read 2000

  • No need for filters! Monochromator optics for measurements from 340 nm to 800 nm enables a wide range of assays to be performed
  • Automatic calibration of single channel optical system with self-check and for precision measurements
  • Shaking ensures complete mixing of solutions, cells to stay in suspension and colored solutions to be homogenized
  • Wavelength scanning  for contamination detection, peak absorbance detection and product formation studies
  • 12-, 24, 48- and 96-well microplates with standard ANSI SBS footprints can be used for flexible applications
  • Real-time reference measurement channel for the improved accuracy


  • Absorbance measurements: ELISA, protein quantitation, cell proliferation and cell survival assays
  • Enzyme kinetic measurements requiring automatic readings at timed intervals
  • Wavelength scanning to determine sample purity
  • Cell-based assays requiring shaking to maintain cells in solution
  • Assays measuring the changes of absorbance of NADH at 340nm
  • Contamination detection, peak absorbance detection and product formation using scanning across a range of
