The Even-More-Value-for-Money Multimode Reader
With TriStar² the multi-technology microplate reader platform has developed into its second generation setting new standards in modularity, performance and user-friendliness.
- BRET and BRET²
The TriStar² has been developed to support a fully modular approach. Any combination of reading technologies and options can be composed maintaining all possibilities of later upgrades.
The optical system ONE-4-ALL with a new revolutionary design is the first time a single optical system has been employed in a multi-technology reader that matches the performance of individual dedicated optical devices.
Built-in Reagent Injectors
Up to 3 reagent injectors can be set up to dispense multiple activators or detection reagents at any time and with user-adjustable volumes during the measurement.
Berthold Technologies´ injectors are based on the proprietary JET Injection technology. Superior accuracy and precision is combined with excellent mixing performance. Variable injections speeds and "friendly" material enable even injection of live cells (e.g. in Aequorin based GPCR screening).
One of the injector tips is located in reading position enabling the measurement of very fast labels, e.g. Acridinium esters, and to inject activators into a running kinetic.
The ergonomic design of the housing provides front access of the injectors keeping the reagent reservoirs within reach and within eyesight. A through allows keeping the reagent bottles on ice or elevated temperatures – just as required.
Excess fluids from priming and washing procedures are safely discarded via a specially designed wash plate.
A temperature controlled microplate compartment ensures stable conditions whenever temperature sensitive enzymes or cells are in use.
Front Access of Reagents
The reagent reservoirs can be placed on the front for easy access and monitoring. A smoked see through lid protects the reagents from light. A base trough allows for the use of ice to keep the reagents cool.
In the TriStar² any of reading technologies can be combined with each other and any of the options added.
