PHERAstar FS – The Gold-Standard for HTS Microplate Readers

Product Description
pherastar-fs.jpg
Speed. Precision. Sensitivity. All of the features one would expect from the gold-standard of HTS microplate readers, the PHERAstar FS microplate reader has it all. Built for HTS, Biotechnology, and Core Academic laboratories, this high-end HTS microplate reader comes with advanced, Direct optic top and bottom reading, reagent injectors for performing fast kinetic assays at the point of measurement, and dedicated lasers for TR-FRET and AlphaScreen® measurements. The PHERAstar FS will outperform most microplate readers in every HTS detection mode in
speed and sensitivity. It is the gold-standard for all HTS microplate readers.

Applications
Geared for the greatest flexibility in HTS, the PHERAstar FS supports nearly all applications imaginable including:

• Protein-protein interactions
• Genotyping and SNP detection
• Molecular binding assays
• Receptor ligand binding
• DNA quantification
• Enzyme activity and kinetic assays
• Cell based assays
• Reporter gene assays
• Protein quantification
• G- protein coupled receptor (GPCR) assays
• Kinase, cAMP, calcium, and other second messenger signaling assays
• And many more assays

Exceptional Features
To achieve great sensitivity, speed, and precision in all HTS assays, the PHERAstar FS is endowed with many technological advances not found on other microplate readers, including:

• Multiple laser light sources for TRF, TR-FRET and AlphaScreen® measurements
• On-board reagent injectors for precise kinetic measurements at the measurement point
• Direct Optic top and bottom reading with 0.1 mm Z-axis focus
• High-resolution cell layer scanning
• Precise temperature control up to 45°C
• UV/Vis absorbance CCD-based spectrometer
• 3456-well compatibility

Multiple HTS Detection Modes
The compact and versatile PHERAstar FS HTS microplate reader is able to perform all leading non-isotopic detection technologies including:

• Ultra-fast spectrometer based UV/Vis absorbance
• Fluorescence intensity – including FRET
• Fluorescence polarization – including Transcreener®
• Time-resolved fluorescence – including DELFIA®
• TR-FRET including HTRF®, LANCE®, LanthaScreen™,
• Laser-based AlphaScreen®
• Luminescence – including BRET

Automation
As automation is a key feature in High-Throughput Screening, the PHERAstar FS was designed with a small standardized microplate reader footprint for easy integration into all leading robotic systems via DDE or ActiveX interfaces. For medium level throughput, BMG LABTECH offers a 50-plate Stacker for use with the PHERAstar FS and all other BMG LABTECH microplate readers.

Software package
The PHERAstar FS license-free software includes the PHERAstar Reader Control and the MARS Data Analysis software. This highly intuitive software provides limitless possibilities for test set-up and data analysis, while also offering a Quick Start shortcut and calculation templates for running routine tests and data analyses.
