A definite must-have for absorbance-based microplate assays
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
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. "

"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."
Absorbance microplate reader from BMG LABTECH
Ultra-fast, full spectrum absorbance with the SPECTROstar® Nano
Instantly capture full spectra (220-1000 nm in <1 second!) for low volumes, microplates and cuvettes with the SPECTROstar® Nano from BMG LABTECH.
The SPECTROstar® Nano from BMG is a revolutionary microplate reader for absorbance measurements. The flexibility it provides makes it easy to perform low-volume absorbance assays at speeds like no other absorbance-only reader on the market.
Predefined protocols also make it possible to read ELISAs, RNA, DNA, protein, cell growth and more simply at the touch of a button.
