BMG LABTECH is a Diamond Sponsor of the First Annual SLAS 2012
News Jan 26, 2012
The first inaugural SLAS will take place February 6-8th in San Diego, California.
Amongst the things to see in the booth are: the PHERAstar FS, the gold-standard for HTS instruments; the SPECTROstar Nano, the only 1536 absorbance reader that can capture a full UV-Vis spectrum in less than a second per well; and the new Atmospheric Control Unit with dual independent gas intake valves, making the FLUOstar Omega the ultimate cell-based microplate reader.
BMG LABTECH will also host two 50 minute tutorials at SLAS highlighting the PHERAstar FS and its flexibility in cell-based and HTS assays. The Tuesday morning tutorial will be in conjunction with Labcyte detailing a nanoHTS platform in 3456 well plates. Together with Labcyte’s Echo® liquid dispenser, we now have the ability to go to smaller volumes. The Tuesday afternoon tutorial will demonstrate the flexibility of the PHERAstar FS by showing how it outperforms two competing drug discovery technologies, a charged coupled device (CCD) based microplate reader used for HTS and a flow cytometer used for high content screening (HCS). Visit our SLAS booth, tutorials, or posters to see the future of microplate reader technology today.
