Tecan' s new microplate reader series brings Infinite flexibility

  Zurich, Switzerland, October 10, 2005 – Tecan has introduced a new series of flexible, upgradeable multi-mode microplate readers that combine reagent dispensing with several detection modes in an affordable platform for the complete range of life science applications. The unique modular design and adaptability of the Infinite™ 200 series provides researchers with a choice of a monochromator or filter system and allows them to tailor the instruments detection modes for their individual needs.

Users of the Infinite 200' s monochromator module benefit from full flexibility in wavelength without the requirement for optical filters, while the filter modules are highly cost efficient for routine applications at fixed wavelengths. The configurable detection modes allow the Infinite 200 to read fluorescence assays from the top and bottom as well as luminescence or absorbance assays in 6-384 well microplates, PCR plates and cuvettes.

These new readers are the first in a series of products to be launched in this latest development from Tecan and are supported by the powerful new i-control software, which allows the user to easily set up protocols to suit their own application. Furthermore, optional Magellan™ software packages provide full data reduction capability and are designed to meet FDA regulation 21 CFR Part 11. MultiCheck™ QC test plates, MultiCheck software and IQ OQ documentation are also available for periodic performance checks.
