The EnVision Nexus system features high-throughput, exceptionally fast dual detectors, enabling researchers to screen millions of samples with the increased accuracy, speed and sensitivity. For walkaway convenience, the system can be equipped with a plate stacker for 20 or 50 plates or can also be fully automated and integrated for 24/7 workflow-driven automation.
“We’re transforming drug discovery, and it all begins in the lab where researchers can leverage multimode plate reader technology like the EnVision Nexus system to increase R&D productivity at nearly every stage of their process,” said PerkinElmer Senior Vice President of Life Sciences Alan Fletcher. “By focusing on workflow simplification and expanded assay capabilities in a state-of-the-art microplate reader, complemented by our optimized reagent technologies, our team has created an all-around high-performing system built for today and the future.”
The solution’s design draws on the Company’s experience and success with its leading EnVision® system, a workhorse in laboratories around the world for more than 20 years. Easy to setup, use and maintain, the new EnVision Nexus platform works across major detection technologies, including fluorescence intensity, fluorescence polarization, absorbance, luminescence and time-resolved fluorescence (TRF). This means a wide range of assays can be performed for different applications all with one instrument.
Also New at SLAS
PerkinElmer will debut its Zephyr® G3 NGS iQ™ workstation, a compact, fully integrated benchtop system that enables the automated construction of up to 96 NGS libraries. This workstation incorporates a high-performing liquid handler, integrated thermocycler, robotic arm and all deck accessories and peripherals, allowing laboratories to increase capacity and reduce errors by automating even the most complex NGS methods with a higher degree of reproducibility. The Zephyr G3 NGS iQ workstation is available with an optional cloud-based software to further simplify the creation and editing of NGS protocols by utilizing a single-pane of-glass interface and developing methods from scientific intent rather than code.
Learn more about the Zephyr workstation and EnVision Nexus reader at the SLAS2023 International Conference and Exhibition from February 25 - March 1 in San Diego, where the Company is showcasing its best-in-class scientific portfolio and novel workflow solutions that span across basic research, biologics, and cell and gene research, including automation, imaging, gene modulation, base editing tools, engineered cell lines, cell counting, assays and reagents in booth #1424.
