Hybrid Microplate Reader
WINOOSKI, Vt., Dec. 16, 2009 – BioTek Instruments Inc. has expanded its Synergy multimode microplate reader family with the release of the patent-pending Synergy H4 with hybrid technology. The newest model combines the sensitivity of filter-based optics with the flexibility of monochromator-based optics in a compact instrument for fluorescence-based applications.Biotek_HybridMicroplate.jpg

Its filter and dichroic-based fluorescence optics feature offers light filtering and purification with fast wavelength switching and readout speeds suitable for TR-FRET, fluorescence polarization or AlphaScreen and AlphaLISA applications. Providing the flexibility to choose any wavelength from the UV to the near-infrared, its quadruple monochromator-based fluorescence optics is ideal for spectral scanning applications. Its top and bottom optics also enhance assay flexibility.

The modular device features fully equipped configuration and it is compatible with the company’s Take3 multivolume plate for low-volume measurements down to 2 µL.

GLOSSARY
dichroic
Exhibiting the quality of dichroism.
fluorescence
The emission of light or other electromagnetic radiation of longer wavelengths by a substance as a result of the absorption of some other radiation of shorter wavelengths, provided the emission continues only as long as the stimulus producing it is maintained. In other words, fluorescence is the luminescence that persists for less than about 10-8 s after excitation.
light
Electromagnetic radiation detectable by the eye, ranging in wavelength from about 400 to 750 nm. In photonic applications light can be considered to cover the nonvisible portion of the spectrum which includes the ultraviolet and the infrared.
monochromator
Also known as monochromatic illuminator. An instrument for isolating narrow portions of the spectrum. The spectrum of any light source is formed by a prism or grating, and an exit slit placed in the spectrum selects a narrow band of wavelengths for emission. By moving the spectrum of a source internally past the slit, the color of the emitted light can be varied at will. As most monochromators emit several percentages of unwanted light -- either white or of the wrong wavelength -- along with...
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
polarization
With respect to light radiation, the restriction of the vibrations of the magnetic or electric field vector to a single plane. In a beam of electromagnetic radiation, the polarization direction is the direction of the electric field vector (with no distinction between positive and negative as the field oscillates back and forth). The polarization vector is always in the plane at right angles to the beam direction. Near some given stationary point in space the polarization direction in the beam...
