Bio-tek Synergy HT Multi-Detection Microplate Reader Fluorescence, TRF, Absorbance and Luminescence Microplate Reader Equipped with UV-VIS Fluorescence and Luminescence
 for top- and bottom- read assays with one year warranty


Instrument Description and Capabilities:

Todays research requires that instrumentation be cost effective- reliable and easy to use. In response to those requirements- BioTek Instruments has developed the Synergy HT Multi-Detection Microplate Reader. This plate reader for fluorescence- absorbance and luminescence measurements was designed with an emphasis on superior performance in all detection methods. Unlike many multi mode microplate readers- the Bio-Tek Synergy HT utilizes a unique dual-optics design.

When making fluorescence determinations- the Bio-Tek Synergy HT uses a tungsten halogen lamp with interference filters for wavelength specificity in conjunction with a PMT detector. The tungsten halogen lamp produces a large amount of light at a constant intensity- providing increased sensitivity and repeatability. Specially designed fluorescent interference filters prevent light leakage from excitation wavelength to the emission wavelength- particularly important with fluorescent compounds with small Stokes shifts. In addition- the ability to use filters with different bandpasses allows the investigator to tailor their fluorescence measurements to their experiment more effectively.

The low noise PMT is operated in digital photon integration mode for high performance luminescence measurements.

When absorbance measurements are made- the instrument switches to a Xenon Flash Lamp and a monochromator for wavelength selection. The use of a xenon flash lamp allows for both UV and visible light absorbance measurements. The monochromator provides wavelength selection from 200 to 999 nm in 1 nm increments. Thus- dual-optics design allows the investigator to have three different reading modes without compromise.

The Bio-Tek Synergy HT has a 4-Zone temperature control system that ensures superior temperature uniformity necessary for kinetic assays. With a compact footprint and robot-accessible carrier design- the Bio-Tek Synergy HT is also compatible with most automated systems.
