Great instrument that we purchased based on excellent advice from Sylvia Johnson.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Protein analyses

"Sylvia Johnson has commissioned our instrument and followed up with checks and upgrade assistance. We have few if any problems but Sylvia is able to solve issues over the phone. She is one of the most effective and efficient people I deal with and has such a degree of knowledge of the product that enables our users to always have a reliable source of knowledge that promises we will remain loyal to BMG and their products."

Easy to use and fast turnaround on data -cannot ask for more!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Being used by PhD and undergraduate students for microbial growth curves & standard curve generation

"This is a very easy to use piece of equipment and has the benefit of reading microplates and cuvettes. BMG Labtech sent two engineers, one to install the equipment and the next day another to demonstrate the software. The software demonstration was very comprehensive and it was obvious that the engineer knew his topic and the software very thoroughly. All answers were given in an easy to understand way. The software is comprehensive and displays data in an easily formatted way enabling easy understanding and the ability to export straight into excel is a very useful feature. Protocol set up and implementation is easy and from startup to first analysis was merely minutes. The machine itself is robust and appears well suited to a busy laboratory. The ability to analyse both cuvettes and microplates is superb and being able to control the temperature adds another aspect to analysis that is going to prove to be very useful. I would recommend this product."

A definite must-have for absorbance-based microplate assays
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Bacterial growth, antioxidants, protein assays

"Spectrostar Nano is a sweet little unit that has helped in getting my assays protocols set up and done easily and quickly. Its ease of use also extends to the MARS Data Analysis software that comes with the unit. It has really helped me in visualizing my assays result and process that result to make standard curves and many types of calculations easily without the use of Excel."

Is a great instrument very adaptable for all absorbance needs
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Analyze protein content and enzyme activity from plant extracts

"Really easy to set up new assays or import them from other BMG Labtech equipment, can use both cuvettes and 96 well plates with ease, and adapt the plate reader to nanodrop style too which makes it very adaptable and good value for money. All the adaptations are easy to do and the install engineer talked me through everything. "

  • Application Area:QC.

"We now have 2 of these machines after a previous long term use of a Sigma reader. 25 years old with original bulb! Easy software and connection to printer and export. Gone are RS232 days! After care excellent and long term demo's, some chance of ex-demo models - waiting list. Some of our protocols are included in BMG'S 'Application notes' circulates in hard and soft copies to the users'. "

  • Application Area:Scanning abilities became important to us this year - more than ever

"We were awarded a SPECTROStar Nano a few years back and have mainly used it in cuvette mode. That was until we realized we could obtain spectral fingerprints of beverages at very short pathlengths through UV-transparent microplates. Other instruments only take one sample at a time and require pathlength units to be exchanged to get finer level resolution of darker colored products. With the SPECTROStar Nano we are routinely obtaining 96 sample analyses across the full UV-visible spectrum in about five minutes. In addition with other assays we perform, looking at the scan rather than single wavelength values enables us to extract much more information than we could before. This enables more rapid assay development as well as routine testing with established protocols."
