Take3 Trio Micro-Volume Plate

Part Number: TAKE3TRIO

For use with: Synergy Neo2, Cytation 7, Epoch 2, Cytation C10, Cytation 5, Cytation Multi-Mode, Epoch, Cytation 1, Synergy H1, Synergy HTX, Synergy LX

Take3 Trio Micro-Volume Plate

The Take3 microvolume plates increases the functionality of your microplate reader by decreasing the required sample size down to a 2 μL volume. Take3 plates are compatible with the Cytation, Synergy, and Epoch readers for microvolume absorbance and fluorescence quantification. Microvolume quantification is fast and easy by measuring multiple 2 µL samples at the same time, without diluting and without the need for specialized equipment. Preprogrammed nucleic acid and protein protocols in Gen5 software bring confidence in your quantification data.

For use with Synergy LX under Gen5 control.



Low volume 2 µL nucleic acid and protein quantification

Take3 Trio

It takes only 2 µL of undiluted sample to get rapid results with the Take3 plate. Choose from the 16-sample Take3 or the 48-sample Take3 Trio for higher throughput. Take3 plates are compatible with most of BioTek’s multi-mode readers, imaging multi-mode readers and microplate spectrophotometers.

Pre-programmed protocols in Gen5 Software


Gen5’s pre-programmed dsDNA, ssDNA, RNA and protein (BSA, IgG, lysozyme) measurement protocols make getting direct quantitative results quick and easy. Add sample IDs and define blanks if desired. Endpoint results and selectable spectral scans provide quick visual results and are output in convenient .xls, or .xml formats.

Absorbance and fluorescence detection

Take3 template

The Take3 plates aren’t limited to absorbance detection – they are useful for micro-volume fluorescence quantitation as well – with only 2 µL sample volumes. Compatible with many of BioTek’s multi-mode readers and imaging multi-mode readers.

Easy, wipe-off maintenance

Take3 open

Residue and dust can wreak havoc on micro-volume measurements, so it’s important to keep the sample surfaces super clean. Take3 plates are so easy to clean – simply wipe samples off after measurement with a laboratory wipe.

Read 2 µL microspots, BioCells or standard cuvettes


Along with 48 microspots, the Take3 Trio plate can accept 2 patented BioCells for rapid 1 cm measurements in a BioTek microplate spectrophotometer.
