BMG LABTECH announces the release of a new reference multi-mode HTS reader at SLAS in January 2016.

BMG LABTECH has announced the expected release of a reference multi-mode HTS reader, PheraStar FSX, in January 2016. The device performs non-isotopic detection technologies in plate formats up to 3456 plates. The optical design contains three independent light sources and a laser for time-resolved fluorometry (TRF) time-resolved fluorescence resonance energy transfer (TR-FRET) that completes 60 flashes per second.

For high-throughput screening, the PheraStar FSX includes robotic integration capabilities, multi-user control, MARS data analysis software, and FDA 21 CFR part 11 compliance.

BMG LABTECH will exhibit the microplate reader at the Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening Conference in San Diego, California on Jan. 23–27, 2016.
