Alpha Technology Laser
The PHERAstar ® FSX and CLARIOstar ® microplate readers offer the best possible performance for AlphaScreen ® , AlphaLISA ® , and AlphaPlex ™ assays . This is thanks to a dedicated Alpha Technology laser which outperforms any xenon-based light source by exciting donors at 680 nm. Excitation lasers significantly improve performance and lower limits of detection. Compared to xenon lamps, they yield higher excitation energy at a specific wavelength.
This dedicated excitation source provides a broader dynamic range and increased signal-to-noise ratio for AlphaScreen ® , AlphaLISA ® and AlphaPlex ™.
