The Infinite F500 is Tecan’s most sensitive filter-based detection platform. It is based on the latest technological developments to provide a multifunctional and modular system that rapidly analyzes all your fluorescence- and luminescence-based assays at outstanding sensitivity levels.
Outstanding levels of sensitivity - in all measurement modes
This flexible new system supports a broad variety of measurement modes, including:
- Fluorescence intensity top [UV/VIS]
- Fluorescence intensity bottom [VIS or UV/VIS]
- Luminescence [flash and glow]
- Fluorescence polarization [FP]
- Fluorescence resonance energy transfer [FRET]
- Dual color luminescence
- Time resolved fluorescence [TRF]
- TR-FRET based assays.
The Infinite F500 allows you to automatically adjust the z-focus in all top reading modes, significantly improving the quality of measurements. The automated z-focussing makes it easy to optimize the set-up when you need to adapt the instrument settings for highly demanding assay parameters, such as low volumes and different well shapes.
Programmable filter slides
The Infinite F500 includes a new concept of programmable filter slides with an electronic chip, a great tool to save certain filter characteristics to support the filter definition of the corresponding filter slide.
High measurement speed and robotic compatibility
The Infinite F500 is capable of reading 6- to 384-well plates, including standard and low volume 384-well plates. All top reading modes can be used for 1536 wells and, by selecting the high speed “on the fly” mode, a 1536-well plate can be read in less than 30 seconds (please refer to typical performance values). The Infinite F500 can be easily integrated into the Freedom EVO® series of automated platforms.
The Infinite F500 can be optionally equipped with two injectors that are integrated into the system. Syringes can be selected in different volumes, 500 µl, 1,000 µl and 2,500 µl.
