Biochrom Anthos Zenyth 200rt Microplate Reader

Biochrom Anthos Zenyth 200rt Microplate Reader
  • PC-controlled monochromator-based microplate reader covering wavelength range 190 - 1000 nm
  • Built in cuvette UV/Vis spectrophotometer for life science labs and space saving
  • Ideal for labs performing varied assays including temperature-sensitive assays and those requiring various plate types and a wide range of wavelengths
  • Optional ADAP 2.0 Prisma Software options for analysis

Designed for multi-functional life science labs

The Biochrom Anthos Zenyth 200 Microplate Reader is a monochromator-based system with the ability to read at any wavelength in 1nm increments between 190 - 1000 nm. The instrument has temperature control, and the ability to read 6 - 96 well microplates with the standard ANSI SBS footprint. In addition to microplate assays, cuvette assays can also be performed using the built-in UV/Vis spectrophotometer.

The instrument has 3 shaking modes for mixing of solutions and the ability to perform readings at timed intervals ideal for kinetic assays.

The monochromator-based system allows wavescanning; multiple measurements at different wavelengths in the same well, important for contamination detection, sample purity, optimal peak absorbance detection and product formation studies, aswell as linear scanning for verification of agglutination and coagulation and area scan for precipitation and insolubility studies.

Software-NEW ADAP 2.0 Software now available!

The Biochrom Anthos Zenyth 200 is supplied with ADAP 2.0 Basic PC software which is used for instrument control, including filter selection, calibration, plate transporter operation, endpoint, kinetic, and multi-wavelength measurements. Raw data can be stored or transferred to Microsoft® Excel for further analysis.

ADAP 2.0 Prisma Optional software upgrades to ADAP 2.0 Prisma allows the user to integrate analyis methods with measurements such as kinetics, scannning, curvefitting and thresholds. ADAP 2.0 Prisma software also has preinstalled cuvette methods  for DNA/RNA and cell growth measurements.


The Biochrom Anthos Zenyth 200 is designed for ELISA, total protein, cell proliferation and cell survival assays. The Zenyth 200rt can also be used for cell based assays where shaking is required to keep cells in suspension, temperature-sensitive cell-based and enzyme kinetic assays, wavescans measurements, linear and area well scan measurements, NADH assays, and DNA/RNA and oligonucleotide concentration and purity measurements.
