A wide variety of detection modes can be performed with the VANTAstar plate reader. UV-Vis absorbance, fluorescence intensity, FRET, Luminescence (flash and glow), BRET, Time resolved fluorescence (TRF), time resolved FRET (TR-FRET), fluorescence polarisation/anisotropy (FP).
A full UV-Vis spectrum from 220 to 1000 nm from 1 to 10 nm resolution can be measured in less than 1 second per well. Or you can measure up to 8 discrete wavelengths instantaneously with simultaneous data acquisition. For example, measure DNA quantities at 260, 280 and 340 nm in a single flash.
Enhanced Dynamic Range Technology
Thanks to the special Enhanced Dynamic Range (EDR) Technology, each sample is automatically measured with the optimum sensitivity guide setting. As a result, it is no longer necessary to set a gain in advance. The EDR technology provides great ease of use with kinetic assays, where the end signal is still unknown or when there is a big diversity in signal strength within a plate.
