Biochrom Anthos 2020 Microplate Reader

  • Standalone microplate reader supplied with 4 filters (405, 450, 492, 620 nm)
  • Simple, easy-to-use instrument ideal for standard absorbance assays, including kinetic assays
  • Onboard software equivalent to ADAP Plus software for analytical requirements
  • QC plate for instrument validation for peace of mind

Designed for simple absorbance assays
The Biochrom Anthos 2020 is an economically priced, easy-to-use microplate reader for 96 well plates, quick to set up and requiring minimal training. The simple, robust microplate reader has no un-necessary features and is ideally suited to labs with multi-level users, where space is limited and no PC is available.
Four filters are supplied as standard that cover common absorbance assays. Filters from 400 up to 750 nm can be purchased separately when more specialised assays are required.

Onboard software
The Biochrom Anthos 2020 is a standalone instrument with onboard software for control of the instrument and analysis of data. The onboard software is equivalent to ADAP Plus analytical software, including plate layout, transformation formulae, replicate elimination and quantitative and qualitative analysis.

The standalone instrument can also connect to a PC for data export if required, or for optional PC control. The Biochrom Anthos 2020 is supplied with ADAP Basic PC software for PC control. ADAP Basic can be upgraded to ADAP Expert which includes the following functionality; reduction of kinetic assays, tracking of 32,000 sample IDs, and multi-test functions on one plate. ADAP software has user access at different levels allowing users to work within FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliant environments.


The Biochrom Anthos 2020 is designed for standard microplate-based absorbance assays including simple ELISAs, protein quantitation (BCA, Lowry, Bradford), cell proliferation, cell survival, and non-temperature sensitive enzyme kinetic assays.
