Synergy HTX Multi-Mode Microplate Reader

Synergy™ HTX Multi-Mode Microplate Reader is an entry level system for 6- to 384-well microplates offering superior filter-based performance in fluorescence and luminescence with the convenience and flexibility of monochromator-based UV/Vis absorbance optics. Incubation to 50 °C and shaking add functionality, and the powerful Gen5 software provides complete data analysis.


BioTek’s Synergy HTX Multi-Mode Microplate Reader automates absorbance, fluorescence and luminescence measurements with a unique dual-optics design.  Convenient monochromator-based absorbance measurements from 200 to 999 nm in 1 nm increments are made using a xenon flash lamp, with signal detected by a silicon photodiode.  Fluorescence determinations are made using a tungsten halogen lamp with interference filters for wavelength specificity in conjunction with a PMT detector.  The separate optics paths provide uncompromised performance in all detection modes.

Synergy HTX is appropriate for a variety of applications, with features like its unique 4-Zone™ incubation for optimal temperature uniformity. A programmable condensation control mode prevents moisture from building up under the plate lid, adding even more environmental controls for sensitive cell-based assays and long term kinetic measurements.  Orbital and linear shaking are user programmable and an available dual reagent injector allows important inject/read applications like enzyme kinetics and Dual-Luciferase Reporter assays.

With the excellent optical performance of Synergy HTX, assays like AlphaScreen® and AlphaLISA® can be performed with results comparable to much costlier systems.

With BioTek's versatile Take3 plate, up to 48, 2 µL samples can be measured at one time – great for high throughput direct nucleic acid and protein quantification.

Its robust hardware design allows Synergy HTX to operate in a wide range of environments, including 4 °C and 10 °C cold rooms for temperature sensitive applications.  For greater throughput and process automation, Synergy HTX can be integrated with a BioStack stacker or other automation platform.

Pulling it all together is the powerful, easy to use Gen5 software for all reader control operations, data analysis, reporting and export options.

Synergy HTX is the essential multi-mode reader - compact, flexible, high-performing, and affordable for any lab.
