The BioTek Synergy HTX multi-detection microplate reader brings you unmatched performance in all forms of detection, for your fluorescence, absorbance and luminescence needs. This plate reader is a compact, contained and powerful addition to your lab that can handle a broad range of container formats. This dual optics of the Synergy HTX uses filters, a photon multiplier tube and a long-lasting tungsten halogen lamp to provide the most constant light and high levels of repeatable sensitivity. Measurements in this muti-mode microplate reader can be customized with the use of different filters and band passes, with filters specifically designed to prevent light leakage from excitation to emission wavelengths. The low noise PMT in this multimode microplate reader has a digital photon mode for optimal detection in luminescence mode. When in absorbance mode, the BioTek Synergy HTX microplate reader switches to different Xenon Flash Lamp which allow the detection of UV and visible light.

The BioTek Synergy HTX delivers high performance results in a matter of seconds thanks to the combined power of a xenon flash lamp and a monochromator for wavelength selection. Selection can range from 200 to 999 nanometers in 1 Nm increments, offering you outstanding customization. This microplate reader also has a temperature control system for uniform kinetic assays, as well as both linear and orbital shaking. This multimode microplate reader can be upgraded with a dual reagent injection module for inject/read applications. For the best in optimization, and automation, this system is Biostack ready and is compatible with a wide range of automated systems.  This powerful microplate reader is easily controlled through Gen5 Software, a Windows based operating system designed to streamline your data collection, analysis, reporting and exporting.
