  • Application Area: Compounds effect in stem cell screening

  • CLARIOstar®

"The Clariostar is a really robust machine and with great flexibility. The control interface is easy to use and allows a lot of customization. It has a very good sensitivity. And spectral scanning option is very useful. In stacker mode, its speed is necessary in our screening campaign. Moreover, its price is really competitive."

  • CLARIOstar®

"We purchased a Clariostar reader recently to be a workhorse for our labs plate reading needs, and it has performed excellently. Compared to our old microplate reader, this machine is much easier to use and maintain, and not having to change out filters every time we run a new assay is wonderful. We got great install and setup support when we purchased as well. The spectral scanning feature, adjustable band pass, and price really sold us on the BMG reader over another Tecan system we were looking at. We are very happy with our purchase. "

  • Application Area:Binding and Activity Assay Development; Drug discovery

  • CLARIOstar®

"The instrument is versatile for a broad range of applications and reading modes. We currently use it for fluorescence polarization, intensity, UV-ABS readouts. The use of a monochromator instead of filters or optic modules really makes the instrument flexible and met the needs of all the research projects in the lab, as each of us uses different molecules/fluorophores and detection modes. We had a minor issue with the software, but it was promptly solved by the BMG support (they are excellent as for "customer care"). Quite user-friendly and quite easy setups. The idea of the "modularity" of the machine is helpful as well: we got our custom machine with for FP, injectors as major modules, with the awareness of the chance to upgrade the machine with new modules instead of buying a new plate reader. Very good and competitive quality/price value."

"A long awaited multipurpose plate reader that does not require filters. I have used it for a variety of assay systems; fluorescence intensity, fluorescence polarisation, absorbance and found it easy to use. The injectors are a great addition for kinetic assays."

  • 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."

"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. "

"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."
