POLARstar Optima Multimode Plate Reader with FP

Product Description

The POLARstar OPTIMA is a full multimode microplate reader which incorporates Simultaneous Dual Emission detection for fluorescent polarization. The POLARstar OPTIMA offers five different measurement principles:

• Fluorescence Polarization
• Fluorescence Intensity - including FRET
• Time-Resolved Fluorescence - including DELFIA®
• High-Performance Luminescence (flash and glow)- including BRET
• Absorbance - UV/Vis with path length correction

The POLARstar OPTIMA is designed for the widest possible range of non-radioactive labeled applications:

• Ca2+ Measurements (e.g. Ca2+Flux with Fura-2 or Indo-1)
• Molecular Interactions
• Enzyme Activity
• Cell Toxicity, Proliferation and Viability
• ATP Quantification
• Immunoassays
• Kinase, cAMP, and other second messenger signaling
• DNA/RNA quantification
• GFP and other fluorescent protein cell-based assays
• And many more…

The POLARstar OPTIMA is a multimode microplate reader that covers the wavelength range from 240 – 740 nm (900 nm optional). The POLARstar OPTIMA reads all plate formats from 6- up to 384-well. Top and bottom reading are standard, and the dual-channel detection system can be used for fluorescence polarization as well as dual emission wavelength measurements like FRET or BRET. Incubation up to 45°C or 60°C, gas vent connection, up to two built-in reagent injectors, fast filter wheels, and the ability to define up to 8 sets of filters are just some of the outstanding features found in the POLARstar OPTIMA.

Complete Software Package
The POLARstar OPTIMA comes with BMG LABTECH's established OPTIMA Reader Control Software and comprehensive MARS Data Analysis Software. The familiar and highly visual OPTIMA reader control software provides limitless possibilities for test set up and is fully compliant with FDA regulation 21 CFR Part 11. The well-organized Data Analysis Software – MARS – offers a Template Manager for building complex data processing protocols and a Wizard-guided interface to create easy step-by-step calculations, and much more.
