Its modular design also includes detection modes for Fluorescence Intensity, Fluorescence Polarization, Time-Resolved Fluorescence, Luminescence and UV-Visible Absorbance measurement techniques.

MicroFlo™ Select will also be featured as an all-in-one dispensing solution in one compact benchtop unit. A positive displacement peristaltic pump and a range of cassette sizes and settings provide unlimited flexibility in microplate and microtube style, dispense parameters, and dispense volumes. BioTek’s Precision™ XS, Microplate Sample Processor with four liquid transfer tools will also be presented during the exhibition.

Additionally BioTek will present its BioStack™, featuring automation modules which can be interfaced with BioTek’s microplate technologies for increased speed, flexibility and ease of operation. Components are modular and easily reconfigured when experimental protocols change.
