PHERAstar Plus HTS Microplate Reader

Product Description

The PHERAstar Plus provides uncompromising sensitivity, speed and dynamic range for all HTS assays. Not only does it support endpoint readings, but it is also capable of kinetic measurements and well scanning in all microplate formats up to 1536 well.

Whatever the HTS application, the PHERAstar Plus will do it. The PHERAstar Plus offers full modularity in all modes and features Advanced HTRF® / TR-FRET, Advanced Luminescence, Advanced AlphaScreen® with laser, and Advanced Fluorescence Polarization (FP). All FP, FRET, TR-FRET, and BRET assays will benefit from one of the key features of this compact and versatile instrument, Simultaneous Dual Emission (SDE) detection. SDE greatly enhances assay results and read times.

Assay flexibility is further enhanced by precise temperature control and multi-mode shaking capabilities. Sequential dual excitation, Simultaneous Dual Emission and ratiometric calculations are important features for multichromatic applications. Pre-installed optic modules for specific applications can be activated by a simple mouse click and all the necessary components are selected automatically.

With the PHERAstar Plus, BMG LABTECH offers a unique combination of features to support all major existing applications as well as your future needs. Applications include:

• Protein-protein interactions
• Genotyping or SNP detection
• Molecular binding assays
• Receptor-ligand binding
• DNA quantification
• Enzyme activity and kinetic assays
• Cell-based assays
• Reporter gene assays
• Protein quantification

The PHERAstar Plus is able to perform all the leading non-isotopic detection technologies including:

• Fluorescence Intensity – including FRET
• Fluorescence Polarization – including FarRed and Transcreener™
• Time-Resolved Fluorescence - including DELFIA®
• TR-FRET- including HTRF®, LanthaScreenTM and LANCE®
• High-end AlphaScreen®
• Luminescence - including BRET, DLReady™
• UV/Vis Absorbance

Robot Compatibility
The PHERAstar Plus can be incorporated into a wide array of robotic systems via DDE or ActiveX interface. For mid-throughput plate handling, BMG LABTECH offers the 50 microplate Stacker with an integrated barcode reader.

Software package
The PHERAstar Plus 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 for running routine tests and MARS calculation templates for routine data analyses.

Ancestors of Land Plants Were Wired to Make the Leap to Shore
When the algal ancestor of modern land plants made the transition from aquatic environments to an inhospitable shore 450 million years ago, it changed the world by dramatically altering climate and setting the stage for the vast array of terrestrial life.
Photosynthesis Gene Could Help Crops Grow in Adverse Conditions
A gene that helps plants to remain healthy during times of stress has been identified by researchers at Oxford University.
Pancreatic Cancer Stem Cells Could be "Suffocated" by Anti-diabetic Drug
A new study shows that pancreatic cancer stem cells (PancSCs) are virtually addicted to oxygen-based metabolism, and could be “suffocated” with a drug already used to treat diabetes.
Scientists Learn How to Predict Plant Size
VIB and UGent scientists have developed a new method which allows them to predict the final size of a plant while it is still a seedling.
Scientists Home In On Origin Of Human, Chimpanzee Facial Differences
A study of species-specific regulation of gene expression in chimps and humans has identified regions important in human facial development and variation.
Nanoporous Gold Sponge Makes Pathogen Detector
Sponge-like nanoporous gold could be key to new devices to detect disease-causing agents in humans and plants, according to UC Davis researchers.
Genetic Manipulation for Algal Biofuel Production
Studies of the genes involved in oil synthesis in microalgae allow scientists to use a gene promoter to increase algal production of triacylglycerols, which in turn enhances potential biofuel yields.
Phosphorous Fertilizer
UD researchers identify behaviors of nanoparticle that shows promise as nanofertilizer.
