BMG FLUOstar Fluorescence
UV-VIS Fluorescence
 for top- and bottom- read assays $6,295.00

easurement principles for the wide range of applications

The BMG models are a fully automated microplate based multi-detection readers which incorporate various measurement principles:
  • Fluorescence (UV and VIS range)
  • Fluorescence Intensity FI
  • Time Resolved Fluorescence TRF
  • Fluorescence Polarization FP (some models)
  • User choice of Fluorescence filters included
  • Absorbance UV & VIS reading mode
  • User choice of Absorbance filter included
  • Temperature control and microplate-shaking
  • Adjustable bandwidth range
  • 96 and 6-384 well plate capability

By integrating a high intensity xenon flash lamp and liquid light guide technology, these models can cover the wavelength range from 240 to 740 nm in  96 well plate formats. Measurement Modes:  Wavelength: Range 250nm to 740nm wavelength range, with the option to  include up to 8 Excitation and 4 emission wavelengths with initial choice of 2 filter pairs. Measurement Time: 16 seconds for full 96 well plate reading.
Other Features can include: 6-384 well plate capability, Absorbance, programmable shaking, 25 to 45 °C incubation Polarization FP, Luminescence and Injectors



Temperature-regulated heating provide uniform incubation from 25 to 45°C.

Endpoint, slow and fast kinetic measurements

Kinetic applications with up to 250 kinetic points can be defined, with interval times from 100 ms to several hours.

Multi-color detection

The fast filter wheels and the ability to define up to 8 sets of filters, each with individual gain and measurement timing parameters, allow analysis of multiple fluorophores in a single well (TRF, dual-emission, DNA-detection).
