Upcon® plate readers

Versatile and portable modular readers for biochemical assays utilizing Upcon® technology

Upcon® plate readers are modular and highly versatile low-maintenance instruments for biochemical assays utilizing Upcon® upconverting nanoparticle (UCNP) technology. Extremely compact and light, the readers fit almost any laboratory space—be it research laboratories, clinical facilities, or point-of-care settings.

Upcon readers are easily adaptable for 6–1536 well-plate formats, have a wide operational temperature range of 3°C to 65°C, contain up to 32 optical filters and 5 dichroic mirrors, and have three integrated shaking modes. The automation interface of Upcon readers is customizable to most open system stackers and automation lines.

Customized plate maps and sample holders are available on request. Scanning over lateral flow strip lines may be performed with the optional Labrox Strip Scanning Software. For an increased throughput, Labrox offers the LF Strip Holder (80–120 mm) with possibility to run up to 10 LF strips per experiment. Other accessories include an 800 nm High Sensitivity PMT Module and an Upcon Test Plate.
