BioTek Synergy TM plate reader BioTek Instruments, Inc. Synergy H1 Multi-Detektions-Reader

Basic Information

Name: BioTek Synergy TM plate reader
Manufacturer: BioTek Instruments, Inc.
Model: Synergy H1 Multi-Detektions-Reader
Facility: Department of Neurosurgery, Section Experimental Neurosurgery/ Tumor Immunology (NCH-FOR)
Partner: Technische Universität Dresden (TUD)
Partner: University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus Dresden (UKD)


Synergy™ H1 is a flexible monochromator-based multi-mode microplate reader that can be turned into a high-performance patented Hybrid system with the addition of a filter-based optical module. The monochromator optics uses a third generation quadruple grating design that allows working at any excitation or emission wavelength with a 1 nm step. This system supports top and bottom fluorescence intensity, UV-visible absorbance and high performance luminescence detection. It is the ideal system for all the standard microplate applications found in life science research laboratories.

The filter module is a completely independent add-on that includes its own light source, and a high performance dichroic-based wavelength selection system. With its very high optical efficiency, this module supports advanced detection modes such as Fluorescence Polarization, Time-Resolved Fluorescence & TR-FRET and filtered luminescence (e.g. BRET). A dual reagent injection system is available to automate inject/read assays such as ion channels assays or flash luminescence assays (e.g. luciferase or ATP assays).
