SKU:FLUOstar Omega

FLUOstar Omega represents the best performance and flexibility combination for all your life science and R&D applications. Employing our unique Tandem Technology provides the perfect platform for a wide range of applications in basic research, life science studies, and assay development.

The FLUOstar Omega is a multi-mode reader with options for up to six detection modes. It utilizes an ultra-fast UV/Vis spectrometer or filters for absorbance and susceptible filters for all other detection modes. Different methods include fluorescence intensity (including FRET), Time-Resolved Fluorescence (TRF), Time-Resolved FRET (TR-FRET), and luminescence (including BRET).
The unit will fulfill the high sensitivity and precision assay needs of academic and pharmaceutical research laboratories with abilities that include a collection of fast, full-spectrum absorbance scans, monitoring of rapid kinetic reactions, and performance of FRET and BRET detection.

Microplate reader technologies

Gas Vent

Fig. 1: BMG LABTECH readers with gas vents can be connected with external tubing to pump an inert gas into the incubation room or to pull a vacuum.


Through BMG LABTECH’s Gas Vent, the internal atmosphere of the microplate reader can be modified. It allows you to pump an inert gas (such as CO2 or N2) into the reader or pull a vacuum into the plate reader. Used for assays that detect samples sensitive to atmospheric gases, the Gas Vent is ideal for studying fungal and microbial growth that may be sensitive to oxygen levels in the atmosphere.

You can create specific environmental conditions by combining them with temperature control and shaking settings.

A quick-connect system allows for easy change of gas supplies to the instrument.


UV/vis spectrometer

Fig. 1: The UV/vis spectrometer captures a sample’s entire UV/vis spectrum in less than one second instead of detecting individual wavelengths sequentially.

BMG LABTECH was the first plate reader manufacturer to incorporate a UV/vis spectrometer for absorbance detection into multi-mode instruments.

The spectrometer incorporates a highly-efficient optical grating and a solid-state array detector that allows the measurement of light intensity throughout the UV and visible parts of the spectrum. Similar to a monochromator but much faster, the spectrometer captures a sample’s entire UV/vis spectrum within one second per well, with no mechanical scanning needed. Moreover, it provides better sensitivity and resolution.

No longer worry about setting or tuning different wavelengths for your absorbance assays. The spectrometer will capture full-absorbance data at a resolution of 1 nm for all wavelengths from 220 to 1000 nm in less than one second per well. Alternatively, up to eight discrete wavelengths can be collected simultaneously.

The spectrometer permits absorbance experiments that were previously not possible. Due to the ultra-fast speed of spectral capture, time-course experiments can be monitored for wavelength shifts with 0.2-second resolution. Absorbance shifts can be observed in real-time as an assay goes to completion. The spectrometer technology allows users to focus on developing assays and expanding capabilities without worrying about running instrumentation.

BMG LABTECH is the only microplate reader company in the world offering spectrometer technology in a multi-detection microplate reader.
