BioTek continues to set the standard in microplate instrumentation by designing practical functionality, user-friendly software, and affordable modularity as seen in the new Synergy™ HTX Multi-Mode Microplate Reader. This new system is offered as an entry-level multi-mode reader to automate UV-Vis absorbance, fluorescence, luminescence and AlphaScreen®/AlphaLISA® assays in 6- to 384-well microplates in 2 µL samples with BioTek’s Take3 Micro-Volume plates.
The unique dual-optics design results in superior filter based top and bottom fluorescence, luminescence and monochromator based absorbance measurements for maximum applications versatility. Synergy HTX’s modularity allows upgrading over time and BioTek’s powerful Gen5™ Software controls all functionality while providing data analysis for many applications within one powerful yet intuitive package.
Synergy HTX has linear and orbital shaking and 4-Zone™ incubation to 50 °C with condensation control to minimize plate lid condensation. These features, plus an available dual reagent dispenser, make Synergy HTX an ideal platform for biochemical and cell-based applications like nucleic acid quantification, cell growth and toxicity assays, kinetic ELISA and inject/read assays. Workflows can be further automated with the BioStack™ Microplate Stacker or third-party automation.
