BMG Labtech Omega Microplate Reader Series

FLUOstar-Omega

Modular Upgradeable Microplate Readers with Tandem Technology

The Omega Series is the world’s only multi-detection microplate reader series with Tandem Technology utilizing ultra-sensitive filter based detection in all detection modes and high-speed UV/Vis spectrometer based absorbance. The innovative Omega microplate readers are capable of capturing an absorbance spectrum (220 – 1000 nm) at a resolution of 1 nm. Read times faster than 1 second per well are possible.

In addition, the Omega microplate reader series offers a number of outstanding features known from the successful OPTIMA series, such as a dedicated luminescence detection system, top and bottom microplate reading, multi-color detection, well scanning, sixteen filter positions, expanded temperature control up to 65°C and unrivalled plate shaking capabilities. The Omega microplate readers can read microplate formats up to 1536-well plates and onboard ‘smart’ injectors can be used to initiate kinetics and produce dilution schemes and concentration gradients across the microplate.

BMG LABTECH’s standardized reader footprint and robotic software interface make it easy to integrate the Omega reader into all robotic automation systems. For rapid mid-throughput plate handling, the Stacker, with 50 microplate capacity and an integrated barcode reader, can be added to any Omega microplate reader.

The Omega series of multidetection microplate readers are delivered with BMG LABTECH’s established Omega Reader Control software and comprehensive Data Analysis Software, MARS. The highly intuitive software provides limitless possibilities for test set up where it is needed, but also offers a “Quick-Start” mode for running routine analysis with just 3 mouse clicks. In MARS, a wizard guides the user through the entire data analysing process. Additionally, a template manager can be used for building complex data processing protocols. Improved robotic integration capabilities, digital signature and 21 CFR part 11 compliance of MARS complete this new software package.

Upgradability for Greater Functionality

All instruments in the Omega Series of microplate readers are fully upgradeable to the POLARstar Omega, which can be configured with up to seven different detection modes. In addition, several accessories are available that will make your Omega microplate reader an even more powerful life science microplate reader:

Advanced Assay Technology (AAT) Package for the FLUOstar and POLARstar Omega Microplate Readers

trf-headThe Advanced Assay Technology (AAT) package will further enhance your FLUOstar or POLARstar Omega multidetection microplate reader by allowing it to do more advanced assays such as HTRF®, LanthaScreen® and AlphaScreen®. The AAT package includes:

  • High-end TRF optical reading head which gives fantastic performance advantage for all time-resolved fluorescence applications, including TR-FRET
  • Specialized AlphaScreen® / AlphaLISA® mode which provides the Omega multidetection microplate readers with AlphaScreen® / AlphaLISA® performance that rivals any HTS microplate reader

LVis Plate for Low Volume Measurements in all Omega Spectrometer-based Microplate Readers

lvisplate-135
The Omega series of spectrometer based microplate readers are fully compatible with BMG LABTECH´s proprietary LVis Plate. The LVis Plate can measure 16 low volume samples such as DNA, RNA, or Protein. In addition, the built-in cuvette holder allows for larger sample measurements, while the optional quality control optical density (OD) and holmium oxide filters are fantastic for verifying instrument performance testing.
