Product News: BioTek Instruments, Inc. Showcases Popular Products at Experimental Biology 2007

16 Apr 2007

BioTek Instruments, Inc., a global leader in microplate instrumentation technology, will highlight its latest microplate innovations at Experimental Biology 2007, to be held April 28 – May 2, 2007 in Washington, D.C.

Products shown at BioTek booth #648 in the exhibition hall include the ELx405™ Microplate Washer with Ultrasonic Advantage™, the only self-maintaining microplate washer on the market today. The ELx405 includes a built-in ultrasonic cleaner for effortless washer manifold maintenance and guaranteed assay integrity. In addition, the patented Dual-Action™ manifold design provides independent control of aspirate and dispense functions for precise controls of all washing parameters.

The recently released Synergy™ 2 Multi-Detection Microplate Reader with DLReady™ and HTRF® certification is specifically designed to provide research laboratories with performance normally found on high-end HTS instrumentation along with modularity, flexibility and efficient cost-control. Precision measurement techniques include Fluorescence Intensity, Time Resolved Fluorescence, Fluorescence Polarization, Glow and Flash Luminescence, UV-Vis Absorbance, FRET, TR-FRET, BRET, area scanning and spectral scanning.

The Precision™ XS microplate sample processor provides four liquid transfer tools – single-channel pipetting, multi-channel pipetting, 8-channel bulk dispensing, and single-channel aspirate/dispense – on one compact platform for flexible experimental design. Precision Power™ software expands the dynamic capabilities of the instrument with program simulators, sample ID tracking, and more.
