Product News: Sensitivity for Screening, Flexibility for Assay Development - The New CLARIOstar® Multi-mode Microplate Reader at SLAS2014

06 Jan 2014

BMG LABTECH is proud to be a returning Diamond Sponsor for SLAS2014 in San Diego, CA where researchers can see the new and innovative CLARIOstar® microplate reader at Booth #921.

With Triple Detection Technology – filters, a spectrometer, and new advanced LVF Monochromators™ - the CLARIOstar has the sensitivity for mid-throughput screening and the flexibility for assay development. Or team it up with BMG LABTECH’s PHERAstar FS for the ultimate assay development and high throughput screening platform.

Greater Light Transmission, Increased Sensitivity - New, Innovative LVF Monochromators™

Besides being one of the most sensitive microplate readers currently available, the CLARIOstar® has a new, exciting technologically advanced monochromators not found in other readers. LVF Monochromators™ not only have adjustable wavelengths, but also adjustable bandwidths up to 100 nm. Currently, all other monochromators have either fixed or limited bandwidths only up to 30 nm. Thus LVF Monochromators™ can be used for the hundreds of different fluorescent protein, FRET, and BRET assays that require wider bandwidths. Never buy filters for these assays again.

Using patented linear variable filters and linear variable dichroic mirrors to separate light into distinct wavelengths, LVF Monochromators™ are unlike conventional monochromators that use prism gratings. With continuously adjustable bandwidths up to 100 nm and significantly increased sensitivity, LVF Monochromators have filter-like sensitivity and flexibility for fluorescence and luminescence assays.

With the CLARIOstar® Anything is Possible – Any Wavelength, Any Bandwidth, Any Assay. Experience the CLARIOstar® at SLAS2014 at Booth #921.
