Most flexible plate reader with LVF monochromators

BMG LABTECH microplate reader CLARIOstar from the front view

The CLARIOstar® is BMG LABTECH’s most flexible microplate reader, equipped with our revolutionary LVF monochromator™ technology. A combination of monochromators, filters, and spectrometer means that it does not compromise on sensitivity or flexibility. As well as its high performance in all detection modes, the CLARIOstar’s versatility also makes it ideal for assay development.


The CLARIOstar is a multi-mode microplate reader with advanced LVF Monochromators™, highly sensitive filters, and an ultra-fast UV/vis spectrometer. It is a modular microplate reader with up to seven different detection modes: fluorescence intensity (incl. FRET), fluorescence polarization, luminescence (including BRET), UV/vis absorbance, time-resolved fluorescence, TR-FRET, and AlphaScreen®/AlphaLISA®/AlphaPlex™.
