New Imaging Based Plate Reader for Fluorescence and Luminescence

(PresseBox) ( Herrsching am Ammersee, )
Hamamatsu Photonics introduce the new FDSS7000EX Functional Drug Screening System, equipped with a Hamamatsu Scientific Grade fluorescence and luminescence sensor unit. The FDSS7000EX answers the growing need for more cost effective, versatile systems for HTS. It is the first Hamamatsu FDSS system to utilise our new high sensitivity sensor and is the plate reader of choice for demanding HTS labs.

The Hamamatsu FDSS series of imaging based plate readers offer the highest flexibility on the market and we can now offer you a choice of three sensor options; fluorescence only, low level luminescence and fluorescence & luminescence.

The FDSS7000EX has all the key features of the FDSS7000 such as high reliability, whole plate dispensing and imaging, quality of detection, versatility in format and modality and more. The system incorporates a high sensitivity Hamamatsu camera, ideal for both fluorescence and luminescence applications. It allows you to run ratio assays in luminescence, such as shifted luciferase and to run fluorescence assays with fewer cell numbers. The camera also features high quantum efficiency providing increased sensitivity for fluorescence applications.

A wide range of options are available including stackers or robot integration, 3 washing stations, injection heads and much more.
