The Synergy 2 is a multi-mode plate reader. It is capable of reading Fluorescence Intensity, Fluorescence Polarization, Time-Resolved Fluorescence, AlphaScreen, Luminescence and UV-visible Absorbance.
The absorbance detection system is monochromator-based, providing the best level of flexibility in this read mode. The instrument has dedicated optical elements for each individual detection technique.
Our Synergy 2 is equipped with a Dual Reagent Dispensers for readings coordinated with the addition of chemical stimulus (instantaneous or specifically timed). This is an important feature for luciferase assays.
- Sample preparations in 96 or 384 well plates

- Expected Results:
Fluorescence Intensity, Fluorescence Polarization, Time-Resolved Fluorescense, AlphaScreen, Luminescence, or UV-visible Absorbance data.
Plate Selection Tips:
A solid bottom white plate is recommended because it will maximize your signal
Black plates reduce background noise
A solid bottom black plate is recommended if you will be doing a top read (most assays)
A clear bottom black plate is recommended if you will be doing a bottom read of adherent cells
A clear bottom black plate is required
