Did you know: The CLARIOstar has a spectrometer

With the CLARIOstar’s spectrometer you never have to worry about setting the correct wavelengths for absorbance assays, or worry that you won’t have the data after the measurement. The spectrometer will capture full absorbance data at a resolution of 1 nm for all wavelengths from 220 to 1000 nm as it does in our PHERAstar FS and Omega Series microplate readers . Read times faster than one second per well are possible. For even faster results or to keep data collection to a minimum, you can also capture data for only one wavelength or up to eight different wavelengths per assay.

BMG LABTECH’s ultra-fast UV/Vis spectrometer incorporates a highly efficient optical grating and a solid state array detector that allows the measurement of light intensity throughout the ultraviolet and visible parts of the spectrum. Similar to a monochromator, but much faster, the spectrometer allows you to capture the entire UV/Vis spectrum of a sample at varying resolutions (1, 2, 5, or 10 nm).
