BMG LABTECH Presents its Revolutionary Microplate Reader Technology
Product News May 29, 2015
BMG LABTECH showcases its multimode microplate reader CLARIOstar with unique LVF Monochromator™ technology and new Atmospheric Control Unit (ACU). Visit booth #1 at EMBL Heidelberg from 14th to 17th of June.
The CLARIOstar® multimode microplate reader offers filter-like performance with advanced LVF Monochromators™ providing increased sensitivity over conventional monochromators. The LVF Monochromators™, 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.
Equipped with the Atmospheric Control Unit the CLARIOstar® is able to provide the physiological environment for any cell type. The microprocessor-controlled unit can regulate CO2 and O2independently from 0.1% to 20%, making it unnecessary to use premixed gas cylinders to reproduce the specific physiological conditions needed for cell-based assays.
The integration of the ACU into the reader control software allows users to effortlessly regulate the gas concentrations within the microplate reader chamber. The gas concentration data is recorded over the measurement time and displayed in the MARS Data Analysis Software.
In combination with CLARIOstar®’s extended temperature control and three different shaking options (orbital, double orbital, and linear), the ACU is able to provide the physiological environment for any cell type, making cell-based assays more biologically relevant.
