- Gold Sponsor BioTek Highlights Hybrid Microplate Reader Technology and Versatile Microplate Dispenser at LabAutomation 2008
Product News: Gold Sponsor BioTek Highlights Hybrid Microplate Reader Technology and Versatile Microplate Dispenser at LabAutomation 2008BioTek Instruments repeats its continued support of the Association for Laboratory Automation with a gold-level sponsorship of LabAutomation2008, to be held January 27-29, 2008 in Palm Springs, California. At this event, BioTek will introduce two new products.
Synergy™ 4 Multi-Mode Microplate Reader with Hybrid Technology™ will represent the first in a new class of Hybrid Microplate Readers. Synergy 4 is the first and only multi-mode reader to combine filter-based and monochromator-based fluorescence detection technologies in one instrument for unlimited flexibility in current and future microplate-based assays. In addition to fluorescence intensity measurements, Synergy 4’s modular design allows detection of Fluorescence Polarization, Time-Resolved Fluorescence, Luminescence, AlphaScreen®
and UV-Visible Absorbance for even greater versatility. BioTek, in partnership with Invitrogen Corporation, will present a technical poster entitled Fluorescence Intensity, FRET, and TR-FRET Homogeneous Assay Technologies from Invitrogen Validated on BioTek’s New Versatile Hybrid Microplate Reader, Synergy 4
Additionally, BioTek’s new MicroFlo™ Select Dispenser offers a unique design with three interchangeable cassettes in varying sizes providing excellent performance in volumes from 1 µL to 10 mL. The peristaltic-driven dispensing and custom cassettes provide superior flexibility in liquid dispensing to many microplate and microtube styles and sizes. Both the Synergy 4 and the MicroFlo Select will be featured at the “Late Night with LRIG: Rapid-Fire Innovation Session”, to be held January 28, 2008 at the Wyndham Palm Springs Hotel.
The popular ELx405™ Microplate Washer and Bio-Stack™ Twister®
II will be featured at BioTek’s booth as a component based automation system that can be modified to incorporate nearly any instrument combination needed for specific microplate-based applications. Components are easily adaptable to changing experimental protocols.
Details on BioTek’s products and technologies are available at Booth #443, as well as the article webpage.
