Nice machine, but no emission monochromator available!
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area: DNA Protein Interaction studies

"Nice results, Software that has some bugs, therefore data can be lost during export procedure. Told that to the service, they have no solution. Biggest con is, we got the machine equipped with an excitation monochromator and were promised an emission monochromator as soon as this part is developed. Now they do not plan to make an emission monochromator, therefore the purchased excitation monochromator is useless!"

Great results. All relevant ICH parameters culd be fulfilled.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Preclinical PK study

"We analyzed the PK of several antibody like moecules in a precllinical mouse setting. Using the indicated Berthold reader we could fulfill all relevant QC parameter4s according to the ICH guildelines and succesfully determine the PK behaviour of several antibody like molecules in the study. The molecules are planned to be used in human anti cancer therapy."

Flexible, reliable and easy-to-use system with excellent price-performance ratio.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyse permeation of fluorophores through dermal barriers

"Operating the instrument is extremely intuitive and easy to learn. Overall flexibility is outstanding. The multi-mode reader provides excellent possibilities to tweak protocols to different experimental requirements. Furthermore in the process of buying the instrument I got very informative customer service. I was allowed to test the instrument for several days, was offered help with the first protocols and got a lot of additional advice for unconventional and creative use of the measurement system. It was also no problem to continuously include and exclude modules from the offered device after testing to provide me with the exact techniques necessary without including systems, which will not be needed. Exporting data is easy and analysis is facilitated by a useful structure of exported tables. Basically, a fast and robust system, that does exactly what it is expected to do."

  • Application Area:Monitor protein-protein interaction

"The reader is very easy to use, due to its software interface. it is very versatile. The after sales care was really good with the European Headquarters (in Germany), but less efficient with the local Italian support. The reader is also upgradable. We started using a luminometer module, implemented after one year with the absorbance module, and a fluorescence module is available."

"Our Lab has been using Berthold luminometers since more than 30 years. We acquired the new device last year and are having a very positive experience . It is sensitive, easy to operate and the software makes the whole analysis very intuitive. We experienced some troubles by using a specific probe, apparently due to a crosstalk with OD filter. However, Berthold team is giving us full support on this."

Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Perform calcium (dye and GECI) and luminescence reportergene assays.

"We have this machine for over 4 months now and this is a good piece of kit for performing simple luminescence based reporter gene and fluorescence calcium assays. In terms of data acquisition and reproducibility, it’s is as good any other readers (we use readers from 3 other manufacturer). The acquisition software ICE is straightforward and simple to use and gets you going pretty quickly. As we do most of our analysis in prism/excel we can't comment on the additional microwin data analysis package that you can purchase. Additionally, the price of this machine is pretty competitive."

"We obtain very reliable results. But big problems with the filter sliders that scratched and was not fixed in a very efficient way. We had to send the machine away twice for fixing the same problem. User guide was misleading for priming and washing procedures, we had to have the plate reader fully cleaned because of spillage. For this problem, after service was great and efficient. Berthold provided new software avoiding the shooting of 2 injectors at the same time during priming and washing procedures."

Good results with an easy-to-use interface, suitable for many different applications
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Luciferase Assays, Protein concentration determination (e.g. Bradford), Dissociation kinetics

"I mainly use the TriStar2 for in vitro translation assays and Bradford concentration determination. The plate reader gives stable results with low background signal. We also use the plate reader successfully in student courses. We save a lot of time using the TriStar2. The software is easy-to-use and flexible enough for a lot of different experiments. We just recently needed a new filter for GFP-detection in lysates and got in contact with the customer service who offered different filter options to best fit our experiments. "

Great device and helpful to analyze reporter expression
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Analyze reporter expression in transduced cells

"Easy to use, especially regarding template settings, easy to export data with all information of your runs, replicable results when using luciferase filters; less reproducible when using GFP filters; injector is very convenient when you have many samples and need to add substrate. Still some issues with shaker that couldn´t be resolved by the manufacturer."

  • 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."

  • 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. "

  • 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."
