Variable Bandwidth Monochromators
Many multimode microplate readers use monochromator-based optics for fluorescence intensity measurements, allowing great flexibility to use multiple fluorescent dyes and stains. Most of these systems offer a fixed bandwidth. This offering works well for standard fluorophores but isn’t always optimal for some others, including those with a narrow Stokes’ Shift.
The Agilent BioTek Synergy Neo2 hybrid multimode reader, Agilent BioTek Synergy H1 multimode reader, and Agilent BioTek Cytation 5 and Agilent BioTek Cytation 7 cell imaging multimode readers have monochromator optics that incorporate user-selectable variable bandwidths. These monochromator optics deliver excellent assay specificity and assay sensitivity. Synergy Neo2 monochromators have a range from 3 to 50 nm. The Synergy H1, Cytation 5 and Cytation 7 have a range of 9 to 50 nm and both Synergy and Cytation monochromators are selectable in 1 nm increments.
