AlphaScreen® and AlphaLISA®

AlphaScreen and AlphaLISA are homogeneous assay formats used for the measurement of biological interactions, both based on PerkinElmer's innovative bead technology.
With the Infinite F200 PRO, Tecan offers an affordable alternative to cost-intensive laser-based Alpha detection systems. Based on its highly acclaimed fluorescence top optics, the AlphaScreen and AlphaLISA option for Infinite F200 PRO delivers highly sensitive and robust assay results with measurement times perfectly suited for low- to medium-throughput applications.

Gas Control Module (GCM™)

This innovative option provides rigorous environmental control within the detection chamber, making the Infinite 200 PRO ideal for cell-based applications. An integrated gas inlet allows external control of CO2 and O2 simultaneously helping to maintain stable culture conditions and improve cell growth. It also allows assays to be performed under anaerobic or physiological conditions, extending the experimental window while ensuring consistent and biologically relevant data.
The GCM together with its unique altitude correction and the integrated quality control of acoustic and visible warnings leads to more consistent and reliable data and makes it indispensable for cell-based applications.

  • Fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET)
  • Time resolved fluorescence energy transfer (TR-FRET) like HTRF®
  • Time resolved fluorescence (TRF)
  • Fluorescence polarization (FP)
  • Flash luminescence
  • Glow luminescence
  • Dual-color luminescence (including BRET 1 & BRET 2 applications)
  • Absorbance  (UV – NIR & wavelength scanning)
  • AlphaScreen® and AlphaLISA® technology
  • Injectors system for up to two reagents
  • Temperature control
  • Small sample measurement in NanoQuant Plate
