The Upcon® portfolio includes dedicated readers for UCNP detection. Readers are equipped with a 980-nm laser diode and a sensitive detector to meet the requirements set by the exceptional Upcon labels.

The compact, easy-to-use and robust Upcon UCNP Reader is compatible with standard microplates and also scans lateral flow strips (a strip holder fits 10 strips at a time). This reader brings the great benefits of the technology both to R&D laboratories and also to end-users in various environments.

Besides the plate reader, we offer the portable Upcon LF Reader that reads individual lateral flow strips containing Upcon nanoparticles. This smaller-sized reader with similar performance to the benchtop reader (see the comparison data) is a handy option for on-site testing.
