Automate Your Workflows
Expand your workflow automation by integrating the Synergy Neo2 with BioTek’s range of robotics, including the BenchCel Microplate Handler, BioStack™ Microplate Stacker and BioSpa™ Automated Incubator. See this Tech Note describing benchtop ELISA automation with the BenchCel, EL406 and Synergy Neo2.
Hybrid Technology offers many benefits for screening and other multi-mode workflows, including the flexibility to easily select a discrete wavelength and perform spectral scans for excitation or emission peaks. Filter-based fluorescence provides fast wavelength switching and excellent sensitivity.
Variable bandwidth monochromators
Synergy Neo2 has quadruple scientific monochromators, with the fluorescence module offering variable bandwidths from 3 nm to 50 nm, selectable in 1 nm increments. Variable bandwidths allow you to optimize detection conditions for fluorophores that have unique excitation or emission parameters, for example, a narrow Stokes shift, to provide better performance than conventional monochromators.
Live-cell assay optimized
Temperature control to 65 °C, plus linear and orbital shaking and an available gas controller module optimize the environment in Synergy Neo2 for live cell assays. The dedicted filter-based bottom optical path directly illuminates the plate bottom, increasing the sensitivity of live cell measurements, while a dual reagent injector provides quick inject/image capability for observing fast reactions.
Gen5 Data Analysis Software
Gen5 Microplate Reader and Imager Software doesn’t compromise on usability or data analysis performance – protocol creation is intuitive and flexible, and the data analysis capability rivals standalone packages. For the GxP lab, Gen5 Secure software offers features to help comply with 21 CFR Part 11, including electronic signature, data security and multiple level permissions.
Customer SpotlightDetecting the Rhythms of Life with Synergy Readers
Most organisms have circadian clocks, which regulate 24- hour rhythms in a wide variety of activities and behaviors. In humans, the circadian clock regulates sleep onset and influences how much sleep you need. Not surprisingly, changes to these clock factors influence sleep, but also to a wide variety of disorders such as metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, and even cancer. Dr. John Hogenesch, Ohio Eminent Scholar; Professor of Pediatrics in the Divisions of Human Genetics and Immunobiology and the Perinatal Institute; and Deputy Director, Center for Chronobiology at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, in Cincinnati, Ohio, is one of the world’s foremost experts in the molecular mechanisms of circadian rhythms in mammals. His research centers around understanding how biological clocks work and leveraging them to improve human health.
