  • Application Area:To determine novel action of venom

  • PHERAstar FS®

"A superb piece of hardware that was very easy to use. Performed a wavelength scan between 400-700nm over 24hrs and the data was easy to analyze to publishable results. I highly recommend it."

  • Application Area:Coagulation assays

  • PHERAstar FS®

"Coupled with a simple interface and programming and a quick, efficient operation, the PHERAstar is a prime product for all types of assay. Aftermarket support is attentive and highly available, however the high reliability of the machinery means you might not need it!"

  • Application Area:Assay Development And Screening

  • PHERAstar FS®

"Pherastar FS is our third Pherastar reader following two of them, Pherastar Plus and Pherastar, we already had for the last few years. Buying for the third time clearly shows how impressed we are with their performance. Pherastar FS offers wide range of read outs like Fluorescence, FRET, Luminescence etc. It offers high sensitivity and using this reader, it provides higher signal window as compared to others. Its user-friendly software is an added advantage."

  • Application Area:Reading biochemical assay plates

  • PHERAstar FS®

"We have had excellent experience with the sales reps, they came in on numerous occasions to train us and were always ready with a response if we struggled. It is simple to use, and has a lot of different functions available to choose from. We have the plate stacker attached which adds to the ease of use meaning we can walk away. The software also has the option of linking to other computers in different offices, removing the need to export the data from the computer the Pherastar is attached to. We are all very happy with this product in the lab."

  • Application Area:HTS

  • PHERAstar FS®

"The PHERAstar FS is an easy to use microplate reader that offers high sensitivity in a rapid manner. Side by side comparison to other microplate readers in the field have shown that the PHERAstar shows significant gains in speed compared to other well based readers, and sensitivity gains. Overall, a good bet for luminescence, fluorescence, and AlphaScreen assays."

  • PHERAstar FS®

"The BMG Pherastar is very easy to use. The software is user-friendly and intuitive. We have found it very useful for multiple applications over and above what we originally envisaged using the plate reader for. The different settings and features are very varied and we have had a lot of support in developing new techniques."

  • PHERAstar FS®

"The Pherastar is very easy to use and I find the software intuitive. It can read many different applications with sensitivity (lum, FI, FP, HTRF, Abs)The optic modules are easy to fit although if you are using many different applications in one lab they may need changing often. Support is very good, for bespoke requirements script modes can be written."

"One of the most reliable readers on the market, deals with high precision, all kind of readouts. Only it's software, not always user friendly, may seem a bit confusing."
