The BioTek Synergy H4 plate reader is a multi-mode detector that uses both monochromator-based and filter-based optics. The monochromator-based optics provide any wavelength from low UV to the near infrared. The quadruple grating optical system, equipped with a variable bandpass selection system allows for spectral scanning applications. The filter-base optics use dichroic mirrors for enhanced performance. This system contains dual dispensers for more accurate, time sensitive assays. The applications of this plate reader are many because of the dual optical systems and liquid dispensers. This instrument can also be used as a high through put Nanodrop, measuring absorbance of DNA, RNA, and proteins and providing information on sample quality and concentration.
