Versatile, high-performance microplate reader with monochromators, spectrometer, and filters

The CLARIOstar® is BMG LABTECHs newest microplate reader, equipped with revolutionary LVF monochromator technology. Thanks to the triple technology, monochromators, filters, and spectrometer, it does not compromise on sensitivity or flexibility. As well as its high performance in all detection modes, the CLARIOstars versatility also makes it ideal for assay development. 
Anything is possible. Any wavelength. Any bandwidth. Any assay. 
The CLARIOstar® is a multimode microplate reader with Advanced LVF Monochromators, highly sensitive filters, and an ultra-fast spectrometer. It is a modular microplate reader, having up to eight different detection modes, including: Fluorescence Intensity, FRET, Fluorescence Polarization, Luminescence, BRET, UV/Vis Absorbance, Time-Resolved Fluorescence, TR-FRET, and AlphaScreen® /AphaLISA®.[/b]

Features of CLARIOstar
  • Full spectrum UV/Vis absorbance (220 to 1000 nm)                * BMG LABTECHs proprietary ultra-fast spectrometer (<1 sec/well)               * AlphaScreen®/AlphaLISA® assays are performed with a high energy Laser               * Kinetic and cell-based assays can be initiated with reagent injectors               * An integrated fluorophore library                

    Advanced LVF Monochromator & Filter Selector System                Perfect for measuring and developing fluorescence assays, the CLARIOstar has an advanced monochromator for flexibility that can be used in combination with filters for greater sensitivity. The advanced monochromators, having continually adjustable wavelengths (320 to 850 nm) and bandwidths (8 to 100 nm) for excitation and emission, have significantly increased performance over conventional monochromators.               

    Description of Technology                BMG's advanced monochromator system consists of two Linear Variable Filter (LVF) Monochromators & Filter Selectors, one for excitation and one for emission. In addition, a Linear Variable Dichroic Mirror (LVDM) slide is used to separate the excitation from the emission light. The LVF Monochromator consists of a Linear Variable Long Pass (LVLP) slide and a Linear Variable Short Pass (LVSP) slide. The LVLP forms the rising edge while the LVSP forms the falling edge of a bandpass filter. By moving the LVLP and the LVSP slides relative to each other, the system creates a filter with a distinct variable peak wavelength and bandwidth. The high transmission and the outstanding blocking of stray light give the CLARIOstar s monochromator system filter-like performance. In addition, the slides can hold fixed filters, polarizers, and fixed dichroic mirrors for special applications like FP, TR-FRET or Alpha Technology.
