The BioTek Synergy 4 Multi Detection Microplate Reader provides a user-friendly solution for a wide range of microplate read options. This plate reader combines monochromator-based capabilities with filter based detection for the best in flexibility in a compact modular package. This Biotek microplate reader is a S4MFTA Synergy 4 model with Temperature control, plate shaking, monochromator-based fluorescence intensity (top), Filter Based Fluorescence Intensity (top and bottom) Time resolved fluorescence, and UV-Vis absorbance. The Synergy 4 Microplate Reader accommodates all standard microplates with 128 x 86 mm geometry up to 384-wells.  Plate shaking time in this microplate reader is variable by the user, with a variable, low, medium and high shaking speed, with a temperature control range of 4-50°C.
