LUMIstar Omega

Dedicated microplate luminometer

The LUMIstar® Omega is BMG LABTECH’s powerful dedicated luminescence microplate reader, providing highly sensitive flash and glow assay readings. This DLReady-certified microplate reader can also come equipped with Simultaneous Dual Emission for BRET applications, and can be further upgraded to a multi-mode reader.

+4 °C above ambient up to 45 °C or 65 °C

The upper heating plate of the incubation chamber operates at 0.5 °C more than the lower plate.

This prevents condensation build-up on the lid or sealer.
