BMG LABTECH’s VANTAstar microplate reader is a user-friendly and flexible microplate reader with monochromators, filters and spectrometers.

The VANTAstar™ is a compact microplate reader that has been designed to offer flexibility and user-friendliness. This multi-mode reader offers the ideal detection platform for an extensive range of applications in fundamental research and life sciences.

The combination of BMG LABTECH’s patented dual LVF Monochromator™ system, UV/vis absorbance spectrometer and filters guarantees complete wavelength flexibility. The Enhanced Dynamic Range (EDR) technology integrated with a quick full-plate auto-focus also considerably enhances usability and allows a simple detection setup.

The VANTAstar is considered a perfect platform for any live cell-based assay owing to its atmospheric control unit, temperature incubation, multiple shaking, well scan and reagent injectors.
