The LAB SCANALYZER HTS is a medium to high throughput screening platform used to accurately monitor a wide range of samples including small plants, leaf disk assays, fungi, cultures and small organisms such as mosquito larvae or nematodes.
Cameras move over an array of samples that can contain 48, 72, or 84 multi-well plates (depending on cabinet dimensions), assessing large numbers of different samples in one run. Instead of plates, trays or pots can be used, and corresponding adaptors are available.
The enclosed environment of the HTS guarantees consistent and reproducible imaging conditions, suitable for four camera types supplied by LemnaTec (VIS, NIR, IR and Fluorescence). Lighting options include backlight, direct or diffused top light and fluorescent imaging with blue light excitation.
Cameras can be easily repositioned to suit different plant containers and illumination conditions. Different optical configurations are available depending on sample dimensions.
