Synergy 2 Multi-Detection Microplate Reader

The Synergy 2 is BioTek's high-performance multi-mode plate reader designed for the life science research and drug discovery markets. Its fluorescence detection system uses deep blocking filters and dichroic mirrors for the best level of performance in research and screening applications. The dedicated absorbance detection system is monochromator-based, providing the best level of flexibility in this read mode. And, by utilizing dedicated optical elements for each individual detection technique, Synergy 2 offers uncompromised performance and the lowest limits of detection. Detection modes include Fluorescence Intensity, Fluorescence Polarization, Time-Resolved Fluorescence, AlphaScreen, Luminescence and UV-visible Absorbance. Its three broad-spectrum light sources have been chosen for o...Read more

"Have been using in our lab and department for a few years now and Synergy 2 is very reliable and user friendly. Uses Gen5 software and company provided updates when available. Software is easy to use and data output can be exported to other stats programs. Customer and technical services are exceptional and quite impressive. As long as equipment is kept clean it is very dependable."

  • Synergy 2 Multi-Detection Microplate Reader

"I have used the Biotek Synergy reader for high throughput ELISA screening. The software ease of use is unsurpassed. It is especially valuable if you need to export your data into a macro or automated reporting file. After purchase service is excellent and the price-point cannot be beaten for the value. I would highly recommend the product to anyone looking for a new plate reader, and encourage you to at least try the software if you are used to another one."

  • Application Area:Well plate reading- assays

  • Synergy 2 Multi-Detection Microplate Reader

"Program is very easy to understand. Protocol writing for experiments is simple and I can run my entire assay with one. Set up and training was very detailed, they let us know common problems and how to fix them ourselves. It would be nice to have a lamp that doesn't need warm up time and wouldn't burn out if left on."

And, by utilizing dedicated optical elements for each individual detection technique, Synergy 2 offers uncompromised performance and the lowest limits of detection.

Detection modes include Fluorescence Intensity, Fluorescence Polarization, Time-Resolved Fluorescence, AlphaScreen, Luminescence and UV-visible Absorbance. Its three broad-spectrum light sources have been chosen for optimal illumination and excitation in all applications.


Synergy™ 2 Multi-Detection Microplate Reader Features:

  • Unique Optical System - a narrow band monochromator, optimized filter/dichroic mirror pairing, and three broad spectrum light sources achieve superior performance in all read modes.
  • Compatible with Take3 Micro-Volume Plate - sixteen 2 µL microspots for low volume DNA/RNA 260 nm measurements. Saves precious samples, very fast and simple process.
  • High Sensitivity - dedicated optical elements optimized for each specific modality result in the lowest limits of detection available in one compact instrument.
  • Modular Design - purchase only what you need and easily upgrade later as experimental requirements expand.
  • High Throughput - optimized for screening assays including 1536-well read mode.
  • Wide Range of Applications - with built-in temperature control, shaking, and optional dual reagent injector, virtually any microplate-based application is possible.
  • New Gen5™ Software - Synergy 2 is driven by the most powerful and efficient microplate control, data collection and analysis software available today.
