Review date: 18 Aug 2014

Application Area: Various single read and time resolved fluorescence assays
CLARIOstar®

"It was about time that BMG had a monochromator based platereader, to combine the flexibility of that sort of instrument with their general high standards of instrument quality and customer support. Our Clariostar works well, except for some small issues with the software, potentially stemming from compatibility problems with the setup of our operating system. But the customer support (UK) is as always excellent. Due to the fundamental design changes, it probably wasn't possible to keep the same filter format as for the filter-based platereaders (the Clariostar still needs filters for polarization experiment and at short wavelengths), so the filters can't be interchanged, which is a pity. Overall, it is probably the most versatile platereader on the market, and the modular build up (can be upgraded with high temperature option up to 65C, luminscence, injectors etc.) gives you flexibility on the price."

CLARIOstar®

"The instrument and its stackers work well for high throughput screening, allowing fast and consistent read times for microplates. FP comparisons to other readers found the ClarioStar to have higher resolution, require fewer flashes, and result in lower CVs per plate. BMG is very fast at answering any questions and worked with us on any custom requests. "

"It is a very flexible instrument with good software. It is suitable for assay development (96/384 well, multiple reading modes). Tuneable not filters. For low/medium throughput, not an HTS machine."

"A great instrument to measure FP. This reader is amazing for measuring polarization. It is extremely sensitive. Also the ability to fine tune the bandwidth makes it a great instrument. "

CLARIOstar®

"The CLARIOstar is very easy to use, super sensitivity and the speed in many different technologies is outstanding and versatility in fluorescence assays. I have demo'd both the PHERAstar FS and the Clario and their performance is similar. Clario definitively wins for the price tag."

Description

 

The CLARIOstar® – Anything is Possible

The high-performance CLARIOstar® microplate reader from BMG LABTECH is a multimode reader with revolutionary monochromator technology. Advanced LVF Monochromators™ offer cutting-edge technology, such as linear variable filters and a linear variable dichroic mirror, for higher performance fluorescence and luminescence assays including FRET and BRET.

Features of the CLARIOstar®:

  • A continuously adjustable bandwidth from 8 to 100 nm allowing more light for excitation and emission, resulting in greater sensitivity
  • No stray light thanks to the LVF Monochromators™ design means greater sensitivity
  • Top and bottom reading for fluorescence and luminescence assays using monochromators or filters
  • Combine filters and monochromators in the same measurement for higher performance in any fluorescence or luminescence assay
  • High-speed, full spectrum UV/Vis absorbance (220 to 1000 nm in under 1 second per well)
  • A dedicated, high-energy laser for AlphaScreen® and AlphaLISA® assays

Direct optics – as opposed to fiber optics – provide higher light transmission, significantly increasing performance in assays such as fluorescent proteins.

There is no compromise when it comes to sensitivity and flexibility, making the CLARIOstar® one of the leading microplate readers on the market.

Any wavelength, any bandwidth, any assay.
