The VICTOR Nivo system is a high-performance filter-based multimode microplate reader equipped with all major detection technologies:

  • Absorbance
  • Luminescence
  • Fluorescence intensity
  • Time-resolved fluorescence
  • Fluorescence polarization
  • Alpha

It’s a compact, light-weight multimode plate reader designed for life science research laboratories performing routine low-throughput assays, or assay development work, with diverse application requirements.

The VICTOR NIVO system’s software has a modern, workflow-oriented user interface which is easy to learn and use and includes pre-written application protocols to get users productive quickly. In addition, MyAssays Desktop Standard software is provided for data analysis.

The browser-based control software is independent of operating system, so it can be controlled via a variety of touchscreen devices, for example Windows or Mac OS PCs or tablets.

The VICTOR Nivo microplate reader can be operated via WiFi or a network connection, enabling experiments to be set-up, run and monitored remotely, such as from outside a biosafety cabinet or from a neighbouring lab.

Detection Technologies

At the heart of the VICTOR Nivo multimode plate reader is a dynamic wheel system with space for up to 32 filters, enabling the detection of a multitude of different dyes. Filters are exchanged between the inner and outer wheels, so any individual filter can serve either the excitation or emission light path. As a result, there’s no need to install new filters when switching between assays, and filters are locked in place, so they can’t get lost in the lab – ideal for multi-user environments. When fully-loaded, the filter system provides the flexibility to detect many dyes with better sensitivity and greater cost-effectiveness than a monochromator.

For absorbance measurements using the VICTOR Nivo multimode plate reader, there is a choice of either a filter- or a spectrometer-based system. With the spectrometer-based plate reader, full spectrum absorbance measurements are ultra-fast – 230 to 1000 nm at selectable resolutions (2.0 nm, 5.0 nm, 10 nm) in less than 1 second per well.

Up to eight discrete wavelengths can be detected at once in a single measurement with no wavelength switching, and the spectrometer-based VICTOR Nivo system also allows the detection of a wide range of dyes or measurement of samples with unknown absorbance spectra.
