Upgradable to meet future application needs
Variable bandwidth for sensitivity and specificity
|(1) Without automated z-focus available, performance at low volumes is affected. (2) With automated z-focus, reading height is precisely adjusted for best performance in all plate types and all volumes.|
Extended dynamic range
Environmental controls for cell-based assays
|Temperature control to 45 °C, CO2/O2 control and condensation control and shaking create the ideal environment for live cell assay workflows. A consistent environment leads to consistent data for long-term kinetic assays.
Dual syringe injectors with specialized tips
Micro-volume analysis with Take3 plate
|Enable micro-volume analysis with the Synergy H1, using the Take3 Plate. Measure up to 16 or 48
samples in one run and save a lot of time, compared to single-sample devices. Gen5 has customizable
protocols for ssDNA, dsDNA, RNA and protein quantification in 2 µL.
Customer SpotlightBiocontrol of Invertebrate Pests Using Natural Agents: Investigating Host-Pathogen Interactions with the BioTek Synergy H1
Biocontrol agents provide a safer alternative to chemical pesticides and insecticides for the agricultural and forestry industries, as well as human health. In this video, Dr Bethany Greenfield, Post-Doctoral Research Assistant in the Biocontrol and Natural Products (BANP) Group at Swansea University, describes her research into the use of Metarhizium anisopliae for the control of mosquitoes. Hear how the BioTek Synergy H1 enables the group to efficiently perform a range of analyses, from protein quantification to measuring insect stress response.
