The CLARIOstar® is a multimode, high-performance microplate reader with a revolutionary new type of dual monochromator technology. The advanced LVF MonochromatorsTM, along with filters and a spectrometer, can be used for a variety of applications in the different detection modes. The CLARIOstar’s new gas-ramping function fully manipulates the environment within a microplate reader by mimicking in vitro hypoxia and ischemia/reperfusion. The CLARIOstar with atmospheric control unit is the first plate reader that is able to rapidly return to physiological gas conditions upon active modification of 02 and CO2 tensions within the reader, reproducing disease-specific settings in live-cell-based assays.
