Fast reading speed:

  • Reads a 96-well plate in just 15 seconds, which is essential for kinetic applications.
  • Combination of fluorometric GFP measurement and a lumometric luciferase measurement from the same well is fast due to the versatility of assay programming.

Onboard dispensers for exact follow-up of kinetic reactions:

  • Equipped with up to three reagent dispensers for rapid kinetic assays, such as Ca2+ flux
  • Supports simultaneous dispensing and reading, enabling monitoring of kinetic measurements from the very start of the reaction
  • Very low dead volume and the backflush capability for conservation of expensive reagent

High sensitivity for both top and bottom reading:

  • Fiberless direct illumination optics for both top and bottom reading
  • High sensitivity, wide dynamic range and low cross talk for accurate and precise results for 1- to 384-well plates

Specially designed for automation:

  • Reads up to 384-well plates for increased assay throughput
  • Easily integrated with automated systems
