Refurbished FLIPR® and FLIPR Tetra® Instruments

Buy or lease, the choice is yours.

Refurbished FLIPR® fluorescence readers and FLIPR Tetra® cellular screening systems for your high-throughput applications available for purchase or lease.

Black Dog offers refurbished FLIPR® 1, FLIPR® 2, FLIPR® 3 and FLIPR Tetra® fluorescence microplate readers for sale and lease. Black Dog lab equipment is thoroughly inspected and reconditioned to meet the highest quality standards. These instruments are reliable high-throughput cellular assay screening systems for identifying early leads against Ion Channel and GPCRs (G protein-coupled receptors.) They are ideal for kinetic cellular assays such as calcium flux. Unlike other used lab equipment suppliers, every refurbished FLIPR® fluorescence microplate reader is thoroughly inspected and reconditioned with the pipettor, camera, and laser, receiving complete service and certification.

Black Dog offers fully refurbished FLIPR® 1, 2 and 3 instruments and FLIPR  Tetra® instruments.

Systems are offered with a multitude of options to serve your needs; for example, the light source for most FLIPR® models can be upgraded with an air-cooled laser to save valuable bench space and energy. Most options are field upgradeable following installation. We also offer a wide range of accessories for FLIPR® fluorescence readers and FLIPR Tetra® high-throughput cellular screening systems. For more information, please call us at 1-919-602-5988 to discuss your needs.
