Conceived for ease of use and flexibility, this instrument provides the perfect detection platform for a wide range of applications in basic research and life sciences. The combination of BMG LABTECH´s patented dual LVF MonochromatorTM system, UV/vis absorbance spectrometer and filters ensures full wavelength flexibility. LVF Monochromators™ provide the highest wavelength flexibility while delivering filter-like performance for fluorescence and luminescence assays. The Enhanced Dynamic Range (EDR) technology provides a dynamic range of 8 decades and combined with a fast full-plate auto-focus significantly improves usability and enables an effortless detection setup, as VANTAstar users do not have to worry about manually selecting sensitivity settings.
The Atmospheric Control Unit (ACU) module enables independent, simultaneous control of both O2 and CO2 within the microplate reader chamber. Ranging from standard cell growth assays to cytotoxicity assays, the ACU provides the optimal environment for any live cell-based assay. Injectors can be combined with a software-controlled heater and magnetic stirrer, enabling reagent mix and dispensing from a bottle or beaker at a specific temperature.
