Application Area: Reading biochemical assay plates
PHERAstar FS - The Gold-Standard HTS Microplate Reader

"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 Gold-Standard HTS Microplate Reader

"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 Gold-Standard HTS Microplate Reader

"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 Gold-Standard HTS Microplate Reader

"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."
