Microplate reader technology on display at trade show

BMG Labtech, will be exhibiting at the SLAS conference 2015 from February 7-11th in Washington, DC. The company's booth will showcase its high performance microplate readers and its latest innovations.

The company will showcase its latest devices, the CLARIOstar with new Atmospheric Control Unit (ACU) and PHERAstar FS, at the event.

The CLARIOstar multimode microplate reader offers filter-like performance with advanced LVF Monochromators that provide increased sensitivity over conventional monochromators. The monochromators, along with filters and an UV/ Vis spectrometer can be used for a variety of applications in up to eight different detection modes. With its new ACU the CLARIOstar is able to provide the physiological environment for any cell type, enhancing cell-based microplate assays.

BMG Labtech describes the PHERAstar FS as the ultimate multimode microplate reader for high-throughput screening, combining high sensitivity with fast read times. Thanks to its optic module system, simultaneous dual emission, UV/Vis spectrometer, and dedicated AlphaScreen and TRF Lasers, the PHERAstar FS will perform any application with ease and speed, even in 3456-well microplates.

Besides exhibiting, BMG Labtech will participate in four tutorials. The following topics will give an insight into the science behind the technology: “Ultra-Rapid Detection of Cardiac Contraction: Drug Discovery with Personalised 3D Engineered Heart Tissues” in cooperation with Invivo Science, “SPARCL” in cooperation with Lumigen, “HTRF assay in induced pluripotent stem cell derived cell types” in cooperation with Cellular Dynamics International and Cisbio, and “Characterization of Monoclonal Biologics” in cooperation with Cisbio
