BioTek Synergy 2

Schedule time to use the BioTek Synergy 2

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.

Plate Selection Tips:

  • For luminescence

    • A solid bottom white plate is recommended because it will maximize your signal

  • For fluorescence

    • 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

    For absorbance

    • A clear bottom black plate is required
