Good, compact and diligent device. Recommended.

  • Application Area:Reporter Gene Assays

"Setup and running the instrument is pretty easy and convenient. Since I developed a new but kind of special Assay I ran into some troubles with the software which crashed if I wanted to use the desired option. Customer service was very friendly and updated the software and even gave me a beta version to start running experiments. I advise making a sample run in presence of Biotech expert to rule out mistakes you can make to optimize your results."

Very good
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Microbial growth kinetics; enzyme assays;

"We had initially a few problems with the reader, but we were very much supported to solve the problem. Since then we are using the plate reader for microbial growth kinetics and various enzyme assays routinely. This works very well and gives stable and reproducible results. "

A good platform with no glitches or hang ups
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Multi-Mode Plate Reader

"The Berthold Tristar is a reliable, consistent, effective multi mode plate reader. It has up to 4 available injectors. Reads absorbance, fluorescence and luminescence. It is relatively user friendly, you can set up your own protocols with a minimum of effort and easily save variations on each protocol. The analysis software takes a little bit of use to become familiar with, however it is a good platform with no glitches or hang ups. The service personnel at Berthold are great. They can help you fix many issues just over the phone. I highly recommend the Tristar. Great value."

The TriStar is a great machine, easy to maintain, affordable and well-supported by local Berthold staff.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Elisa, chemistry, surface-chemistry

"This machine is very powerful yet has a small foot-print. Perfect for a small Elisa-technology based lab as ours. We have three detection-methods built in: Absorbance, Luminescence and Fluorescence. Also one dispensing unit is provided, very handy for flash luminescence applications. We use the TriStar even for chemistry end-point measurements in glass microtiter plates. Also measurements in non-SBS-format plates, tubes and vials can be done, supported by the easy-to-use but powerfull operating software. On occasions we needed a software update or minor repairs, which were done swiftly and effectively, and in a way we never were without an instrument, so we had no delays in our analysis output."

The Even-More-Value-for-Money Multimode Reader.

With TriStar² the multi-technology microplate reader platform has developed into its second generation setting new standards in modularity, performance and user-friendliness.

  • Luminescence
  • BRET and BRET²
  • Fluorescence
  • FRET
  • Absorbance

The TriStar² has been developed to support a fully modular approach. Any combination of reading technologies and options can be composed maintaining all possibilities of later upgrades.

The optical system ONE-4-ALL with a new revolutionary design is the first time a single optical system has been employed in a multi-technology reader that matches the performance of individual dedicated optical devices.
