BMG RUBYstar Microplate Reader HTRF Fluorescence Assay N-Laser 337i

AdID: 9584

Availability: In stock


BMG Labtechnologies´s RUBYstar is a high performance microplate reader specifically designed for homogenous time-resolved fluorescence assays. The noise from background fluorescence usually arises between 350 nm and 600 nm and decays within measurements. This background fluorescence overlaps extensively with the emission spectrum of many fluorophores and in the low concentration range these effects cannot be compensated sufficiently with standard fluorescence readers. The RUBYstar enables highly sensitive time-resolved fluorescence detection by applying europium chelate or cryptate fluorophores. These compounds are excited with the high-energy laser and show long fluorescence lifetimes (several hundred µs), large Stoke´s shifts and sharp and intensive fluorescent peak profiles at 620 nm. Thus with the RUBYstar backgrounds are reduced and the signal-tonoise ratio increased so giving maximum sensitivity. (Source: BMG RUBYstar Product Advertisement)

This is a used RUBYstar microplate reader that is in excellent cosmetic condition. Any imperfections on the body paint have been documented in the photo gallery for the customer to review. New Life Scientific technicians have performed an evaluation of this instrument for any signs of damage or dysfunction; the technicians have confirmed that there is no indication that this product should not function as intended for microplate reading applications. During a visual inspection, the technicians took care to photograph the boards and laser to ensure the buyer that all components were intact and all wiring was connected. The instrument was powered on and the 'ready' light illuminated green. Unfortunately, this product does not include software which the customer will need to supply or acquire separately. Please see the links provided for more information about the RUBYstar and contact New Life Scientific for warranty details.
