BMG LABTECH showcases its multimode microplate reader CLARIOstar® at the GLISTEN meeting from 1st-2nd of April in Allschwil. In addition visitors of the Labotec from 6th- 7th of May in Lausanne, have the possibility to see the CLARIOstar® with new Atmospheric Control Unit and the Gold Standard microplate reader for High-Throughput Screening, the PHERAstar FS. Visit booth # D12 to see what BMG LABTECH’s instruments can do for your work in the lab.

The CLARIOstar® multimode microplate reader offers filter-like performance with advanced LVF MonochromatorsTM that provides increased sensitivity over conventional monochromators. The LVF MonochromatorsTM, along with filters and an UV/ Vis spectrometer can be used for a variety of applications in up to eight different detection modes: Fluorescence Intensity and FRET, Time-Resolved Fluorescence (TRF) and TR-FRET, Fluorescence Polarization/Anisotropy, AlphaScreen®/AlphaLISA®, Luminescence (flash and glow) and BRET, and spectrometer-based UV/Vis absorbance.

With its new Atmospheric Control Unit the CLARIOstar® is able to provide the physiological environment for any cell type. The microprocessor-controlled unit can regulate CO2 (0.1 - 20%) and O2 (0.1 – 20 %) independently, making it unnecessary to change gas cylinders or piped gas supplies to reproduce the specific physiological conditions needed for cell-based assays. In combination with CLARIOstar’s extended temperature control and three different shaking options (orbital, double orbital, and linear), the ACU makes cell-based assays more biologically relevant. Within the German-engineered ACU, integrated gas pressure regulators allow for easy setup and independence of gas supply pressure, and eliminate the need of further pressure regulators between the ACU and the gas supply. Furthermore, integrated pressure sensors combined with an acoustic alarm allow for easy control of both gas supplies while superior valve gas control ensures minimal gas consumption. Accurate gas regulation is further guaranteed by the incorporated altitude correction feature.

The PHERAstar FS is the ultimate multimode microplate reader for High-Throughput Screening, combining the highest sensitivity with the fastest read times. Thanks to the unique optic module system, simultaneous dual emission, UV/Vis spectrometer, and dedicated AlphaScreen® and TRF Lasers the PHERAstar FS will perform any application with ease and speed, even in 3456-well microplates.
