POLARstar Omega Microplate Reader from BMG LABTECH

The POLARstar Omega is the fully-equipped Omega-series microplate reader, offering all the features of a FLUOstar Omega, and in addition fluorescence polarization. Equipped with BMG LABTECH’s ultra-fast UV/Vis spectrometer and Simultaneous Dual Emission detection, the POLARstar Omega represents a great combination of performance and flexibility for life science applications.

The POLARstar Omega is a versatile, filter-based multi-mode microplate reader with six detection modes: fluorescence intensity (including FRET), fluorescence polarization, luminescence (including BRET), UV/Vis absorbance, time-resolved fluorescence (including TR-FRET), and AlphaScreen®/AlphaLISA®. For cell-based applications, the optional Atmospheric Control Unit (ACU) makes O2 and CO2 gas control possible.
