Product News: PerkinElmer launches EnVision Nexus multimode plate reader to drive improved research and discovery workflows

27 Feb 2023

PerkinElmer recently launched the EnVision® Nexus system. This multimode plate reader is the fastest and most sensitive to date, designed for demanding high-throughput screening (HTS) applications and to accelerate drug discovery efforts. The EnVision Nexus platform, with complementary microplates and optimized reagents portfolio, including proprietary HTRF® and AlphaLISA® technologies and latest reagent kits, provides researchers increased assay flexibility.

The EnVision Nexus system features high-throughput, exceptionally fast dual detectors, enabling researchers to screen millions of samples with the increased accuracy, speed and sensitivity. For walkaway convenience, the system can be equipped with a plate stacker for 20 or 50 plates or can also be fully automated and integrated for 24/7 workflow-driven automation.

“We’re transforming drug discovery, and it all begins in the lab where researchers can leverage multimode plate reader technology like the EnVision Nexus system to increase R&D productivity at nearly every stage of their process,” said PerkinElmer Senior Vice President of Life Sciences, Alan Fletcher. “By focusing on workflow simplification and expanded assay capabilities in a microplate reader, complemented by our optimized reagent technologies, our team has created an all-around high-performing system built for today and the future.”

The solution’s design draws on the company’s experience and success with its EnVision system. Easy to setup, use and maintain, the new EnVision Nexus platform works across major detection technologies, including fluorescence intensity, fluorescence polarization, absorbance, luminescence and time-resolved fluorescence (TRF). This means a wide range of assays can be performed for different applications all with one instrument.

At SLAS2023, PerkinElmer will be debuting its Zephyr® G3 NGS iQ workstation, along with its scientific portfolio and novel workflow solutions that span across basic research, biologics, and cell and gene research. The Zephyr workstation is a compact, fully integrated benchtop system that enables the automated construction of up to 96 NGS libraries. This workstation incorporates a high-performing liquid handler, integrated thermocycler, robotic arm and all deck accessories and peripherals, allowing laboratories to increase capacity and reduce errors by automating even the most complex NGS methods with a higher degree of reproducibility. The Zephyr G3 NGS iQ workstation is available with an optional cloud-based software to further simplify the creation and editing of NGS protocols by utilizing a single pane of glass interface and developing methods from scientific intent rather than code.
