Training and installation included with purchase!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Analyze xenogenes in tissue samples

"I appreciate the ease of the sale, we bought this through Fisher and they coordinated everything. We have been impressed by the after the sale support in setup and training. I love that we will have training included so that everyone will be on the same page with the new instrument and that we will not have to rely on one person to teach the rest of us how to use this machine."

Reproducible and easy to use.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Optical density, fluorescence

"User-friendly, portable. The small size and multiple applications make it best choice since Synergy Lx Multi-Mode Microplate Reader. It's user-friendly and most importantly, it can easily fit in any biosafety cabinet if required to measure any infectious agent in BSL3 labs"

DNA quality and quantity in one machine!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:DNA Quantitation for SNP analysis

"The Synergy LX Multi-Mode allowed my clinical laboratory to test for DNA purity and quantity on the same equipment, which has in the past been 2 pieces of equipment. The Gen5 software was a little different to navigate but tech support was great in helping me find my issues in my templates for fluorescence readings. The Synergy LX was easy to use, provides reproducible results, and is a great buy for a clinical laboratory."

Excellent device
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Analyzing various chemical assays in the chemistry lab

"Synergy LX multimode plate reader is a good device at affordable price with the option to upgrade to fluorescence at a later stage if you do not have enough budget. I use the device for absorbance measurement and is really a good payment for my work. The absorbance values are repeatable. One thing I do not like about the device is that, it takes a long time when measuring spectral scanning at the highest possible resolution of 1 nm. I waste time if I have to carry out spectral scanning from 200 to 700 nm at this resolution. Besides this, it is a perfect device."

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.

Features:

  •  Affordable multi-mode reader
  • Supports common endpoint assays
  • Micro-volume quantification with Take3 plates
  • Continuous UV-Vis wavelength selection: 200 nm to 999 nm
  • High performance, high blocking filters for fluorescence and luminescence
  • Touchscreen: Easy operation, immediate data display
  • Output to USB flash drive, printer or Gen5 Software
