The small-footprint ELISA Microplate Reader

Based on the proven technology of its predecessors the Apollo 11 sets new targets for microplate absorbance readers by introducing its new unlimited life-time LED light source technology.

The Apollo 11 is ideally suited for all common ELISAs, assay for monitoring enzyme activities and protein and DNA quantification assays.

The easy-to-use self-explaining one-view PhotoRead software gets you started with the measurements within seconds.


The instrument performs auto-check and auto-calibration of the optics and electronics before every measurement.

Large Dynamic Range

The Instrument´s dynamic range of 3.7 OD is large enough to cover any assay´s requirements.


Precise mechanics, quality optics and the auto-control guarantee unrivalled repeatability of measurements.


Like all Berthold Technologies instruments the Apollo 11 comes to your laboratory checked against a QC test plate. With this reassurance you are able to work with accurate, traceable and comparable results.
