Extremely Easy to Use with Great Sensitivity

Not only is this instrument very easy to use, but it is also the most reliable and user-friendly instrument in our lab. We use our PHERAstar FSX daily for different fluorescence applications and standard absorbance readings, and it is fast, sensitive, consistent in performance, and reliable. The Microplate Stacker is a huge plus. Just load the plates and walk away. That is how easy and reliable it is.

We rely on PHERAstar readers as a core analytic instrument.

The PHERAstar FSX instrument is a high quality, reliable, plate reader. Our assay development platform relies on PHERAstar readers for absorbance, fluorescence, luminescence, and homogeneous time resolved fluorescence. We have excellent experience with BMG as a manufacturer/ partner both in the knowledgeable and responsive sales reps and their quality technical service reps. The BMG MARS software provides easy-to-manage instrument control, customizable method protocol development with many available curve fitting tools and data analysis workflows that are powerful and easy to customize; all with a relatively shallow learning curve. Results report building is customizable, and data can be exported to software such as Excel for additional processing. The MARS software complies with 21CFR part 11 regulations for data integrity allowing for use in a GMP lab setting.

Easy to use with reproducible signals.

This reader is very easy to use. We use it for more or less all our experimentations reading fluorescence, luminescence, alpha lisa. We have purchased 4 readers in my service and they are really heavily used.
