MICROPLATE READER, SAFIRE 2 MODULE
The BMRL utilizes two multi-well plate reading systems for carrying out a variety of spectrophotometric assays based on fluorescence, luminescence and absorbance measurements. The first system is a TECAN Safire2 (left picture) which is a modular microplate detection system based on a quad-4 monochromator technology that offers a range of high speed detection techniques. The Safire2 is mounted on the deck of our Tecan EVO liquid handling robot to enable automated plate measurements. The second system is the Synergy HT from BioTek (right picture) and is based on a dual-optics design that allows for three different reading modes. This system also has a low noise PMT for high performance luminescence measurements.
