Tecan launches AlphaScreen® option for
Infinite® F200 PRO reader

Infinite F200 PRO offers a cost-effective solution for AlphaScreen assays

Männedorf, Switzerland, November 27, 2012 – Tecan has developed an AlphaScreen® module for its popular Infinite® F200 PRO multimode reader, providing customers with a cost-effective solution for AlphaScreen and AlphaLISA® assays. Offering excellent sensitivity for screening and research, the new option further extends the flexibility of the Infinite F200 PRO for low and medium throughput applications.

The AlphaScreen module combines the Infinite F200 PRO’s established fluorescence top optics with a bespoke filter set designed to use the instrument’s standard flashlamp. This set-up ensures optimal assay performance without the need for a specialized reader, complementing the system’s absorbance, fluorescence intensity, luminescence, fluorescence polarization and time­resolved fluorescence resonance energy transfer measurement modes.
