Biotek Synergy HT Microplate Reader

The Biotek Synergy HT is a single-channel absorbance, fluorescence, and luminescence microplate reader. It is computer-controlled using BioTek’s Gen5 or KC4 PC software for all operations including data reduction and analysis. The Synergy HT is robot accessible and compatible with BioTek’s BioStack Microplate Stacker. When making fluorescence determinations, the Synergy HT uses a tungsten quartz halogen lamp with interference filters for wavelength specificity in conjunction with a photomultiplier (PMT) tube detector. Luminescence is measured by the low-noise PMT detector through an empty filter position in the Emission filter wheel. Absorbance measurements are made by switching to a xenon flash lamp and a monochromator for wavelength selection. The Synergy HT has a 4-Zone temperature control from 4°C over ambient to 50°C and supports the reading of 6-, 12-, 24-, 48-, 96-, and 384-well microplates with standard 128 x 86 mm geometry. Internal plate shaking is supported to ensure that reagents are properly mixed prior to reading.

The Biotek Synergy HT Microplate Reader includes:
  • > Windows 10 Data Station with Pre-Loaded Gen5 PC Software
  • > Operator's Manual
  • > Interface Cable
  • > Full 90 Day Part and Labor Warranty
