Tecan launches the new Infinite™ F500 high-end microplate reader

  Tecan, one of the world’s leading players in the growing life sciences industry, has launched the new Infinite F500 detection platform for assay development and screening in biopharmaceutical, research, food and cosmetics laboratories.

The Infinite F500 provides outstanding sensitivity and measurement speeds, and is able to measure a 1536-well plate in under 30 seconds. The new instrument offers a number of improvements over existing microplate readers, such as integrated injectors that can operate at variable volumes, very fast switching of filter modules and automated z-focusing in all top reading modes. The Infinite F500 has a range of measurement modes, including fluorescence intensity top reading, absorbance and time-resolved fluorescence. Fluorescence intensity bottom reading, fluorescence polarization, homogenous time-resolved fluorescence and luminescence measurement modes are available as modular options.

The easy-to-use, multifunctional microplate reader strengthens Tecan’s portfolio of high-end detection instruments and is compatible with Tecan’s Freedom EVO® series of liquid handling workstations and Tecan’s i-control™ and Magellan™ software packages, allowing complete automation of assay and analysis.
