   Affordable multimode reader

 Automated digital microscopy to 100x

At half the price of similar instruments, Synergy LX is the solution for labs looking for an easy to use microplate reader that offers uncompromised performance for UV-Vis absorbance, fluorescence and luminescence assays.


  Supports common endpoint assays


  Synergy LX, can run the most common assays including:

• A260, A260/A280
• Protein quantification
• Fluorescence, luminescence
• Gene expression
• Cell viability

The independent optical paths ensure uncompromised performance in all modes.
Four imaging modes, multiple imaging processes

   Microvolume quantification with Take3 plates

 Label-free cell counting

Microvolume analysis with BioTek’s Take3 plate and Synergy LX is fast and easy, too. Pre-programmed nucleic acid and protein protocols in Synergy LX display immediate results for up to sixteen, 2 µL samples. Output results to a USB flash drive for use in downstream workflows.


   Continuous UV-Vis wavelength selection: 200 nm to 999 nm


The broad, filter-free wavelength range for absorbance measurements enables many common colorimetric and UV applications, from nucleic acid and protein quantification to turbidity measurements and more.

Automated digital microscopy to 100x

   High performance, high blocking filters for fluorescence and luminescence

Four imaging modes, multiple imaging processes

There’s no compromise on performance in Synergy LX. The high quality filters, coupled with dichroic mirrors in the Synergy LX filter cubes efficiently block background to ensure the best sensitivity for fluorescence measurements.


   Touchscreen: Easy operation, immediate data display


It takes only a few touches to select and run your assay. The data is displayed immediately after the run – a color gradient helps to quickly visualize the data range.

Label-free cell counting

   Output to USB flash drive, printer or Gen5 Software

Four imaging modes, multiple imaging processes

With one touch, export data to a USB flash drive for analysis in BioTek’s Gen5 software or a spreadsheet application.
