The next-generation multi-mode HTS microplate reader

The PHERAstar FS is the ultimate multidetection microplate reader for HTS and assay development, especially where speed and sensitivity are imperative.

The compact and versatile PHERAstar FS microplate reader is able to perform all leading non-isotopic detection technologies.

  • Tandem Technology - Spectrometer / filter based detection
  • Ultra fast UV/Vis spectrometer for full absorbance spectra
  • Fluorescence intensity, TRF, FP, Luminescence
  • Dedicated UV-laser for TR-FRET measurements
  • Advanced HTRF® performance
  • AlphaScreen® / AlphaLISA® laser
  • On-board reagent injection for precise kinetic measurements
  • Advanced top and bottom reading
  • High-resolution cell layer scanning
  • MARS Data Analysis Software

Due to the unique modular optical system, sequential dual excitation, simultaneous dual emission, and ratiometric calculations, such as for FRET and BRET, the PHERAstar FS performs all assays with ease and speed. BMG LABTECH offers assay optimized and barcoded optic modules for your applications with appropriate filters, mirrors, beam splitters, dichroics or polarizers incorporated into one hand-held module. Once inserted, the PHERAstar FS automatically selects the proper module for your assay protocol. Never worry about what dichroic, aperture, or filter is installed in your microplate reader.

No detection mode is compromised to accommodate the multifunctionality of the PHERAstar FS multidetection microplate reader. The PHERAstar FS can read 6-3456 well plates with uncompromised sensitivity, - no need for special apertures or optics. Assay flexibility is further enhanced by precise temperature control to 45°C as well as multi-mode shaking capabilities. Automatic Z-height, gain adjustment, and plate mapping as well as the ability to export data in ASCII format complete the package.

For HTS automation purposes, the PHERAstar FS is easily integrated into numerous robotic platforms or it can be equipped with BMG LABTECH's 50 plate Stacker.

The PHERAstar FS comes with a new version of BMG LABTECH's well-established Reader Control and comprehensive MARS Data Analysis Software with significant ease-of-use enhancements such as S/N, Z' and many other standard calculations. The Wizard creates an easy step-by-step calculation of a standard curve and the Template Manager is an excellent tool for building complex data processing protocols. Thus, user-defined data analysis is done simply with one click of the mouse. Improved robotic integration capabilities, digital signature and the 21 CFR part 11 compliance of MARS complete this software package.
