The PHERAstar microplate reader series includes the PHERAstar Plus and thePHERAstar FS. These high-end multidetection microplate readers provide uncompromising sensitivity, speed and dynamic range. The PHERAstar series supports endpoint readings as well as kinetic measurements and well scanning. Assay flexibility for fluorescence, FP, TRF, TR-FRET, luminescence, absorbance, and AlphaScreen® / AlphaLISA® measurements in all formats up to 1536 make the PHERAstar Plus and PHERAstar FS the ultimate HTS multideteciton microplate readers. The PHERAstar FS can even read microplate formats up to 3456 well. This is enhanced by assay optimized optic modules and PMTs optimized for detection modes. Moreover, sequential dual excitation, simultaneous dual emission and ratiometric calculations are important features for applications such as FRET, fluorescence polarization and HTRF®.
With HTRF®and Transcreener® certification as well as LanthaScreenTM certified plus status, BMG LABTECH’s PHERAstar Plus microplate reader is the perfect solution for all your microplate based applications.
The PHERAstar FS microplate reader has all the features one would expect from the ultimate high-end HTS microplate reader but also comes with advanced top and bottom reading, Onboard reagent injectors for performing fast kinetic assays, and has dedicated lasers for all TR-FRET and AlphaScreen® / AlphaLISA® based measurements. Tandem Technology, incorporating highly sensitive filter based detection in all modes and an ultra-fast UV/Vis spectrometer for full absorbance spectra, makes the PHERAstar FS the perfect solution for screening and assay development. Expect superior performance and speed in all detection modes with unrivalled sensitivity from the most flexible multidetection HTS microplate reader in the world, the PHERAstar FS.

BMG LABTECH’s standardized microplate reader footprint and robotic software interface make it easy to integrate the PHERAstar multidetection HTS microplate readers into all robotic automation systems. For rapid mid-throughput plate handling, BMG LABTECH's Stacker, with 50 microplate capacity and an integrated barcode reader, can be added to the PHERAstar Plus and PHERAstar FS microplate readers.
The PHERAstar series of microplate readers are delivered with a new version of BMG LABTECH’s established PHERAstar Reader Control software and comprehensive Data Analysis Software, MARS. The highly intuitive software provides limitless possibilities for test set up where it is needed, but also offers a “Quick-Start” mode for running routine analysis with just 3 mouse clicks. In MARS, a wizard guides the user through the entire data analysing process. Additionally, a template manager can be used for building complex data processing protocols. Improved robotic integration capabilities, digital signature and 21 CFR part 11 compliance of MARS complete this new software package.
In order to run BMG LABTECH instruments, you also need a personal computer with WindowsTM operating system (7/Vista/Win 2000/XP). Easy export to MS ExcelTM 2007/2003/2000/XP is possible.
