Tecan’s new Infinite® M1000 multimode microplate reader is launched at LabAutomation 2008

Tecan is launching the Infinite® M1000, its new flagship microplate reader, at LabAutomation 2008, booth 305, 27-30 January in Palm Springs, USA. The high-end detection system offers top-of-the-range flexibility, sensitivity and speed for a wide range of detection modes, and has been especially optimized for time resolved fluorescence energy transfer (TR-FRET)-based assays, as well as glow luminescence, fast luminescence and dual color luminescence assays.

The Infinite M1000 gives excellent flexibility through its next-generation premium quad4 monochromators™, but its innovative technology also provides the uncompromising sensitivity and speed typically associated with filter-based systems. The platform can be upgraded with new detection modes at any time, making it ideal for bridging the drug discovery gap between research, assay development and screening in the biopharmaceutical industry, as well as for research laboratories with multiple users and ever-changing applications. The system provides high quality performance for a broad spectrum of applications that includes the latest biomolecular assays for primary and secondary screening, receptor-ligand binding studies, cell-based assays and UV fluorometry-based applications.

The Infinite M1000 has an optional state-of-the-art injector module for up to two injectors, and can be combined with a stacker module or fully integrated with the Freedom EVO® series of automated liquid handling workstations.
