Tecan Genios Instrument Description
The Tecan GENios Microplate Reader combines three important measurement modes – fluorescence,
absorbance and glow luminescence – in a single, compact instrument. 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
Different detection techniques with one instrument change of
measurement directions (top / bottom) by PC software. Thermal
incubation at +5º C to + 42º 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.

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.
