Fluorescence Lifetime Plate Reader (FLTPR, bottom read)

The Fluorescence Lifetime Plate Reader (FLPR), designed in collaboration with Fluorescence Innovations, Inc., uses technology similar to that of the TRF instrument in Fargoland, to perform high-throughput time-resolved fluorescence lifetime measurements in a microplate format (96 or 384 wells).

The FLPR is currently equipped with microchip laser excitation at 532 nm and 355 nm, and it records 384 nanosecond time-resolved waveforms within 10 min, the same speed as a conventional intensity-based plate reader, with 30 times better precision.
