High-Performance Alpha Technology on VICTOR Nivo

Alpha-enabled VICTOR Nivo multimode plate reader


Alpha technology is a homogenous bead-based proximity assay with a solution for just about every research application. To bring this technology to research environments with lower budget capabilities, the VICTOR® Nivo multimode plate reader is now available with all optical components for high Alpha performance technology.

In this technical note, we qualified the Alpha-enabled VICTOR Nivo on the basis of critical assay parameters by testing two AlphaLISA® assays, human insulin and p24 (human HIV). The human insulin AlphaLISA kit is widely used for the quantitative determination of human insulin in serum, buffered solution or cell culture. Insulin is a key player in the control of both carbohydrate and lipid metabolism and has been implicated in various diseases including diabetes, heart disease and obesity. Learn more.
