BMG LABTECH presents the new PHERAstar FSX at Analytica 2016
Ortenberg, Germany (March 2016)– The international trade fair for laboratory technology, analysis and biotechnology opens its doors for the twenty-fifth time. Visitors of the Analytica 2016 will witness the new reference multi-mode HTS reader PHERAstar® FSX from May 10-13 at the Munich Trade Fair. Stop by our booth #311, Hall A3 to see the latest evolution in microplate reader instrumentation combining unmatched sensitivity on the market with highest speed and flexibility in plate formats up to 3456 wells.
The ultimate microplate reader for HTS applications
Built upon the successful PHERAstar FS platform, the PHERAstar FSX has improved features that make it superior to any other microplate reader currently on the market. The reader performs all leading non-isotopic detection technologies with ease and speed. Unmatched sensitivity and speed in Fluorescence Intensity (FI) and Fluorescence Polarization (FP) makes the PHERAstar FSX the most sensitive reader today. Moreover, the reader offers an ultrahigh dynamic range in Luminescence enabling a higher flexibility and more precise measurement results.
Simultaneous Dual Emission detection for Alpha Technology
In order to maximize efficiency, screening facilities must constantly strive to increase throughput and minimize sample expenditure, while controlling costs. To meet these requirements BMG LABTECH pioneered the technique of Simultaneous Dual Emission detection for microplate readers within the last years. The PHERAstar FSX now implemented Simultaneous Dual Emission detection for AlphaPlexTM increasing throughput significantly by cutting read times in a half.
Next generation TRF Laser
The outstanding sensitivity of the PHERAstar FSX is based on an innovative optical design including three independent light sources. To ensure best performance for any assay the PHERAstar FSX comes with the next generation laser for TRF/TR-FRET. The new TRF laser accomplishes up to 60 flashes per second which increase throughput and precision of measurement in all plate formats.
For HTS automation purposes, the PHERAstar FSX offers improved robotic integration capabilities, multi-user control and MARS data analysis software with included digital signature and FDA 21 CFR part 11 compliance, and can be equipped with BMG LABTECH's Stacker.
