Dedicated Luminescence Microplate Reader

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.

The high performance, dedicated luminescence microplate reader.


The LUMIstar Omega is a dedicated reader for luminescence measurements, including BRET. The LUMIstar Omega provides highly sensitive readings of all luminescence applications in end-point and kinetic assays. Moreover, a built-in filter wheel and the optional Simultaneous Dual Emission detection make multiple wavelength detection and BRET applications possible.


  • High performance microplate reader for luminescence
  • Measurement at up to eight distinctive wavelengths
  • Top and bottom reading
  • BRET, optional with Simultaneous Dual Emission detection
  • Up to two reagent injectors
  • Upgradeable to FLUOstar Omega or POLARstar Omega including multiple detection modes and UV/Vis spectrometer
  • Powerful MARS Data Analysis Software
