Overview

Manufacturer: PerkinElmer, EnSight. Installed 2015.

Perkin Elmer EnSight multimode plate reader is used for cell based and biochemical binding assays. It has the ability to rapidly and accurately detect spectroscopic absorbance, fluoresces, time resolved fluorescence and phosphorescence. The system can also be used in conjunction with the JANUS robotic liquid handler and BioTek plate washer.

Benefits of the Plate Reader

– Rapid well-imaging for label-free, Alpha and conventional multimode detection
– Easily configurable
– Temperature control
– Pre-installed filter based absorbance with ability to expand range of filters
– Automated wet preparation, washing and analysis of 96 and 384 wells for both cell and biochemical assays when used in conjunction with the JANUS robotic liquid handler and BioTek plate washer

Technical features and specifications

– Well-imaging for label-free, Alpha and conventional multimode detection
– Temperature control to 65 °C
– Filter- and optional monochromator-based absorbance detection
– Fluorescence well-imaging with single cell resolution for up to four colors (excitation of three colors in parallel)
– Fluorescence well-imaging brightfield and digital phase-contrast imaging
– AlphaLISA / AlphaScreen detection with high power laser excitation
– Fluorescence intensity detection (top- and bottom-reading) with monochromator
– Ultra-sensitive luminescence for low signals
– Barcode identified filter position
– Plate shaking
– Compatible with the JANUS robotic liquid handler and BioTek plate washer
