Microplate reader wins drug discovery award
Fluostar Omega multimode microplate reader
BMG Labtech's Fluostar Omega multimode microplate reader for life science and research and development applications has received the Drug Discovery Product of the Year 2010 award.
Using BMG Labtech's Tandem Technology, the reader is suitable for a range of applications in basic research, life science studies and assay development.
Fluorescence intensity, UV/Vis full-spectrum absorbance, luminescence, alpha technology and TRF (TR-FRET) detection technologies can all be read by the Fluostar Omega.
The POLARstar microplate reader has been used by German researchers to study the effects of gravity fluctuations on plants.
The SoPRano assay platform can work on all BMG microplate readers that have a CCD spectrometer.
BMG Labtech has introduced the Atmospheric Control Unit (ACU), which provides regulated, independent control of both oxygen (O2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) levels within a multimode microplate reader.
Microplate reader specialist BMG Labtech has introduced a website optimised for mobile devices, developed specifically for users of smartphones and other wireless devices.
To address its need for a new absorbance microplate reader for teaching and in its labs, researchers at the University of Texas at Arlington applied for BMG Labtech's Spectrostar Nano competition.
