"A rugged machine with cheap price as compared to other machines with same functions. With high quality results. I recommend it for use by others."
Synergy™ LX Multi-Mode Microplate Reader economically automates many common microplate assays. The high quality optic design ensures excellent data in absorbance, fluorescence and luminescence detection modes. Absorbance optics include a xenon flash lamp and monochromator for continuous wavelength selection from the low UV through the visible range to 999 nm. Fluorescence and luminescence measurements are made with filter-based optics for optimal specificity and direct detection to prevent light loss resulting in outstanding accuracy. The broad wavelength ranges enable many common assays including nucleic acid and protein quantification, ELISA, BCA, Bradford and cell viability. Easily accessible filter cubes make running different assays quick and effortless, while the touchscreen user interface simplifies programming. Immediate data display, plus output to a USB flash drive, printer or Gen5™ Software makes the Synergy LX a versatile assay workstation. An upgradable design allows a lab to buy what is needed today and add other detection modes in the future.
