Product Description

GMI currently stocks Tecan GENios Readers, recertified to meet specifications. Ship Ready. Includes instrument, cable, manual, PC & software along with ‘proof of performance’ documentation.

The Tecan GENios Microplate Reader is a bleeding edge multimode microplate reader combinng three important measurement modes – fluorescence, absorbance and glow luminescence – in a single, compact instrument. It is a highly versatile microplate instrument that can be used for a wide range of applications ideal for R & D work as well as testing and QC tasks in many fields of study including genetics, proteomics and biotechnology.

It handles microplate formats from 6- to 384-wells, to provide flexibility and convenience for all molecular biology applications. The Tecan GENios is the ideal solution for molecular biology laboratories involved in DNA and RNA quantification, or checking labelling accuracy. Tecan versatile GENios offers maximum flexibility and performance.

For cell-based assays, the Tecan GENios Microplate Reader can detect multiple labels per well and switches easily from top to bottom readings with just a single mouse click. This allows scientists and technicians to choose the most appropriate parameters for quantifying nucleic acids and proteins as well as for any ELISAs or general molecular biology assays, using predefined protocols in Magellan software.

With all these highly versatile features, the Tecan GENios Microplate Reader is indispensable for all life science laboratories in both industry and academia. Its wide range of applications makes it suitable for many areas of R&D and testing including genetics, proteomics, biotechnology and for diagnostic laboratories active in nucleic acid testing. The Tecan GENios offers the major advantage of simplifying a number of laboratory procedures as this one instrument can now replace several existing testing systems.

The filters are arranged in filter slides; four excitation filters and four emission filters can be outfitted into the filter slides. Handles 6, 24, 96, and 384 well plates for Fluorescence and Absorbance, 96 well plates for Luminescence. 340-700nm fluorescence spectral range. 230-1000nm absorbance spectral range. Sensitivity 3 pg fluorescence on each well and the emission signal is measured by a highly sensitive PMT. Different detection techniques with one instrument change of measurement directions (top / bottom) by PC software. Thermal incubation at +5° C to + 42° C

Dual optical channels allow measurements from above or below the plate by mouse-click. Light to and from the samples is focused by a lens and high quality excitation and emission filters are easily accessible from the front of the instrument. Each filter slide can hold up to four filters with maximum eight filters onboard for fluorescence and maximum five filters for absorbance.

Product Specifications include:

  • Fluorescence (VIS range)
  • Time Resolved Fluorescence TRF
  • Fluorescence Intensity top and bottom capabilities FI
  • Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer FRET
  • Absorbance reading mode (UV and VIS range)
  • Temperature control and microplate-shaking included
  • Adjustable bandwidth range
  • Luminescence Flash and Glow reading mode
  • 6-384 well plate capability

DNA quantification, fluorescence-/luminescence based ELISA (Enzyme-linked immuno-sorbent assay) and cell-based assays are of growing importance in many laboratories. To achieve accurate results, numerous methods and detection techniques are now used. The new Tecan GENios is a highly competitive instrument that is equally suited to a number of different detection techniques, allowing you to select the most appropriate technique for your needs.
