It has so many options for reading plates, that it is almost "addictive" to use it!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Multipurpose plate reader

"We have a Tecan M200Pro, and this device is one of the most used ones in our laboratory. It's easy to use, reliable and flexible. It has so many options for reading plates, that it is almost "addictive" to use it. For luminescence applications, it's better to have the injectors, although is still possible to have reliable measures not having them."

  • Application Area:Absorbance-, Fluorescence-, Luminescence-, Injection experiments

"The platereader works solidly while measuring simple absorbance, fluorescence or luminescence. The main flaw in my opinion can be found in the software and the injection module. There are plenty of bugs in the software, which often cause crashes or are simply misleading when the software decides to change parameters, which were saved differently. Regarding the injection module it requires a lot of liquid, so expensive solutions may be wasted. Additionally, the minimal injection volume of 5µl shows large deviations. Bugs were reported to Tecan and a fix was promised but we are still waiting after one year. Furthermore, the software only runs on Windows XP and Windows 7; we are still waiting for a Windows 8 version. As we are using the m200pro plateread in two different institutes, the flaws are reproducible between different rags. Summing up I would recommend other companies' platereaders, as these are more reliable."

"The instrument is easy to use. However, it is cumbersome to figure out the calculation factor. I was told the calculation formula can only be shared with European customers, not the US customers."

  • Application Area:Cell Biology

"A very diverse machine- covers fluorescence, luminescence and absorbance. Detects pretty low signal, with not a lot of background. Some crosstalk when Em/Ex are close together so can need optimization. Customer/technical service are very helpful. Questions answered quickly, loaned equipment provided during repair."

"A bit hard to calibrate for nanoquant nucleic acid reading (requires several attempts to wash and blank)."

Multimode microplate reader for infinite application flexibility and high-level of performance

The Infinite 200 PRO series is based on the highly successful Infinite 200 series of microplate reader. The Infinite 200 PRO can provide a full range of leading detection methods in one easy-to-use modular instrument, with either Quad4 monochromator™ (Infinite M 200 PRO) or filter-based technologies (Infinite F200 PRO).

Optimized cell-based applications
The Infinite 200 PRO offers enhanced fluorescence intensity reading especially for cell-based applications, with a range of features designed to improve sensitivity and inter-/intra-well reproducibility. Functions such as the optimal reading (OR) function ensure excellent performance and reliability of your assays.

Advanced z-focus
Automated, adjustable z-focus facilitates assay miniaturization for FI Top measurements on the Infinite M200 PRO, achieving equally high sensitivity and performance in low volume plates. Advanced background correction makes the instrument particularly suited to cell-based applications using autofluorescent growth media, providing automatic optimization of the signal-to-noise ratio.

Infinite 200 PRO detection modes:

  • Enhanced Fluorescence intensity (with OR)
  • Fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET)
  • Time resolved fluorescence energy transfer (TR-FRET) like HTRF®
  • Time resolved fluorescence (TRF)
  • Fluorescence polarization (FP)
  • Glow/Flash and dual-colour luminescence
  • Absorbance

NanoQuant Plate™ compatible
Tecan’s NanoQuant Plate is a sensitive, quartz-based tool that can measure up to 16 samples simultaneously from just 2 μl sample volumes, and detects DNA or RNA concentrations as low as 1 ng/μl.
