Product News: Synergy NEO: The Smart Choice for Today's HTS ApplicationsBioTek's new Synergy™ NEO HTS Multi-Mode Microplate Reader is the smart alternative for today's advanced assays and screening applications. NEO's robust technology is tailored for smaller cell-based screening assays, and maintains ultra-fast, high performance found in traditional HTS readers.
Synergy NEO includes multiple parallel detectors to decrease measuring time, and dedicated filter-based optics for live cell assays. Patent pending Hybrid Technology™ found in Synergy NEO combines filter-based and monochromator-based systems in one compact unit for increased flexibility, speed and performance. Additionally, with a plate transfer time of about 6 seconds per plate, NEO's optional integrated plate stacker is the fastest on the market, allowing increased efficiency and walk-away automation. Powerful, user-friendly Gen5™ Data Analysis Software controls pre-defined or custom protocol creation, data processing and export flexibility.
Additional adaptations for today's diverse assay requirements includes a powerful 100 mW laser-based excitation source for Alpha® assays, temperature control to 65°C, and orbital and linear shaking. Unique filter cubes are barcoded for positive filter identification, and a camera-based scanner can read 1D and 2D barcode-labeled plates, thus limiting potential errors and increasing workflow efficiency.
