Discover the next generation of multimode detection devices - introducing GENios Pro

  • Suitable for major life science applications — from gene expression studies and luciferase assays to BRET assays, molecular interaction studies and cell-based assays
  • Flash luminescence, flash fluorescence and fluorescence polarization capabilities
  • High level of sensitivity for a wide range of detection modes and plate formats
  • Cost-effective solution for users who require excellent performance and application flexibility  in one modular, easy-to-use instrument

Zurich, Switzerland, 11 March 2003  – Tecan, a leading player in the Life Science supply industry, today announced the introduction of the GENios Pro detection device. The GENios Pro is a new addition to the GENios family offering exceptional sensitivity and new measurement capabilities. These detection modes include flash luminescence, flash fluorescence and fluorescence polarization which are all available in one easy-to-use instrument. Using these advanced features, the GENios Pro is suitable for many applications in proteomics, genomics and drug discovery including gene expression studies, luciferase assays,  BRET (Bioluminescence Resonance Energy Transfer) assays and molecular interaction studies as well as cell-based assays. Based on a modular concept, the GENios Pro has been designed to deliver both excellent performance in all detection modes and cost-effectiveness to users in both academic and biopharmaceutical research settings.

To further extend the capabilities of the GENios family, Tecan has applied its extensive experience in liquid handling to its family of detection devices. The result of this synergy is a state-of-the-art injector system that allows simultaneous reagent dispensing and reading. These unique features enable flash luminescence and flash fluorescence measurements to be easily performed. In addition, the detection device is fully compatible with the complete range of Tecan robotic platforms and Tecan’s new versatile Connect stacker which allows batch processing of up to 50 microplates. The GENios Pro, which is fully supported by Tecan’s XFluor and Magellan software, is the ideal choice for laboratories in academic research facilities, biotechnology enterprises and pharmaceutical companies.

Dr. Achim Wehren, Marketing Manager of Business Area Biopharma at Tecan, commented: “The multipurpose GENios Pro detection device is the perfect integrated solution for scientists demanding high sensitivity and high application flexibility.” He added: “At an excellent price performance ratio, we have been able to produce a much needed all-in-one detection solution suitable for a wide range of applications in the Life Sciences. This includes demanding molecular interaction studies enabled by the new fluorescence polarization capabilities of the GENios Pro.”

The GENios Pro is the perfect solution for scientists demanding high sensitivity and a wide range of detection possibilities for the most demanding research applications.
