Synergy™ H4 with Hybrid Technology™ is a patented multi-mode detection system in one compact instrument.

It is the ideal instrument for research and drug discovery applications when having to choose between flexibility and performance is not an option. The monochromator-based optics provides a high level of flexibility; any wavelength can be used from the low UV to the near infrared. The quadruple grating optical system, equipped with a variable bandpass selection system, is ideal for spectral scanning applications. The filter-based optics use dichroic mirrors for enhanced performance.

This system is faster and more sensitive than the monochromator optics. A dual reagent dispenser option is available for inject and read assays such as flash luminescent assays and fluorescent ion channel assays. Additional read modes include: fluorescence polarization, time resolved fluorescence and AlphaScreen/AlphaLISA.

Features Include:

  • Hybrid Technology™: Combines the sensitivity of a filter-based system with the convenience of monochromator-based optics to provide the broadest range of applications available on the market today.
  • Detection modes: Fluorescence Intensity, Time-Resolved Fluorescence, Fluorescence Polarization, AlphaScreen®/AlphaLISA, Luminescence, UV-Visible absorbance, FRET, TR-FRET, BRET, well area and spectral scanning.
  • Modular and upgradeable architecture: Read modes are available as individual modules for cost-effectiveness and peace of mind.
  • Quadruple grating system and variable bandpass selection: Synergy H4 optics incorporate two double-grating monochromators. This design provides the best in spectral scanning performance and flexibility.
  • Deep blocking filters and dichroic mirrors: Synergy H4's filter/dichroic combination provides the best possible performance in fluorescence, time resolved fluorescence and fluorescence polarization applications.
  • Compatible with Take3™ Plate with 2 µL microspots: Enables low volume 260 nm nucleic acid quantitation.
