Berthold Technologies and Titertek-Berthold join forces
Bad Wildbad, Germany, 13. December 2016 / - We are pleased to announce that Titertek-Berthold / Berthold Detection Systems GmbH and the life science business of Berthold Technologies GmbH & Co. KG (“Bioanalytic”) will join forces, effective January 1, 2017 to deliver even greater benefits to our combined customers and business partners through a broadened portfolio of system solutions for the life science laboratory: These range from small standalone readers, such as microvolume spectrometers and luminometers to various dedicated and multimode readers, microplate washers, microplate workstations, RIA and ELISA automation products and high-end imaging systems.
The Berthold Technologies group operates from the Bad Wildbad/Germany headquarter, and has affiliate companies and strong partners globally. All activities of Titertek-Berthold will be moved to the Berthold Technologies headquarter. The newly combined life science business unit will be led by Dr. Anselm Berthold, owner and president of Titertek-Berthold and shareholder of Berthold Technologies GmbH.
The products of Titertek-Berthold / Berthold Detection Systems GmbH and the life science business of Berthold Technologies GmbH & Co. KG (“Bioanalytic”) have been trusted by scientists in basic research, pharmaceutical, biomedical and applied markets laboratories across the globe for more than half a century.

With over 50 years of experience Berthold Technologies is taking radio-HPLC flow detection to the next level. Designed for maximum sensitivity, safety and flexibility the FlowStar² LB 514 sets the new standard for what a radio-HPLC flow detector should be. The convenient dual analogue output enables easy integration into your HPLC systems and a comfortable touch screen provides additional operation flexibility
DuoSeries LB 474 is the new radiometric density system from Berthold based on real 2 wire technology, succeeding our top-selling density measurement system LB 444. The DuoSeries LB 474 density transmitter is characterized by an advanced, customerdriven operation.
With an integrated Geiger-Müller counter tube it is possible to measure directly gamma dose and dose rate in ambient dose equivalent H*(10). The NUMo also can be used to measure radioactive alpha and beta-gamma contaminations on surface such as floors, walls, desks, objects, clothing and or skin as well as neutron dose rate due to the possibility to connect a variety of Berthold probes.
DuoSeries LB 470 is the radiometric level system from Berthold based on real 2 wire technology succeeding our top-selling level transmitter LB 440. Like its predecessor model, the measuring system DuoSeries stands out by a particularly excellent performance with high accuracy and repeatability of level. Read more
Berthold Technologies’ new bScreen label-free µArray reader was selected among the top 3 most innovative products at the Forum LABO Biotech exhibition held in Paris in spring 2015. The bScreen was honored due to its unique technology that helps to increase productivity in the laboratory. The jury highlighted the high throughput capabilities of the bScreen that come without compromises in the measurement performance in terms of sensitivity and information accessible. This way, the bScreen closes the gap between µArray formats and label-free approaches.
The bScreen LB 911 label-free high-throughput reader for biomolecular interaction studies is now available. Exclusively featuring the SCORE-technology from our Partner Biametrics, the bScreen combines the performance of µArray formats with the information available from label-free technologies. This way, the complete binding kinetics of up to 22,500 individual interactions can be analysed in a single run, making the bScreen the ideal solution when it comes to time optimization, efficiency and throughput. The bScreen is the instrument of choice in applications such as epitope mapping, diagnostic and pharmaceutical screening as well as consumer safety tasks. Read more
Through the recently signed partnership with Biametrics GmbH, a spin-off of Tübingen University, Berthold Technologies is able to offer label-free detection solutions for kinetic interaction analysis. The bScreen LB 991 is a bench-top instrument based on the proprietary 1λ-Reflectometric Interference Detection (1λ-RIDe) for kinetic label-free bio-molecular interaction monitoring and analysis. It is working with microarray slides, good for detecting up to 10,000 interactions within one run, thus closing the gap between conventional µArray approaches and currently available label-free techniques.
The Process Control division offers non-contacting level measurement technology for use in a variety of industrial sectors. As global leader in radiometric technology the level gauges provided by Berthold are unique in terms of reliability and long-term stability – the more than 20,000 measurement systems that are in operation worldwide are a proof of that every day.

Instruments for Radiation Protection
The Radiation Protection Division develops, manufactures and distributes extremely sensitive and reliable radiation monitors for radiation protection and health physics in research, nuclear medicine, nuclear engineering and also for nuclear decommissioning. These instruments are mainly for the measurement of:
Microplate Readers and in vivo Imagers
The Bioanalytic division develops and manufactures single and multi-label microplate readers for a multitude of life sciences applications like reporter genes, Calcium, ATP, caspases, kinases, GPCRs, cAMP, DNA concentration, protein concentration, immunoassays, oxidative burst and many more.
In vivo imaging of luciferase and GFP expression as well as other luminescent and fluorescent marker are the turf for the small animal and plant imaging systems NightOWL and NightSHADE with a set of dedicated add-ons, e.g. anaesthesia unit or LED growth illumination.
For more than 60 years, the German based company, Berthold Technologies GmbH & Co KG has provided measurement solutions to all major steel producers around the world. In order to enhance the market presence in Japan, Berthold now partners with Nireco Corporation. The Japanese based company, is the exclusive provider of Berthold Technologies’ products and solutions for the Japanese steel market.
Recently the Norwegian based company Sensor Technology AS (S-Tec) has joined BERTHOLD TECHNOLOGIES - the worldwide leading supplier of radiometric instruments for process control. S-Tec is a specialist for nucleonic gauges as well; with their vast experience in the oil & gas industry they perfectly fit into Berthold’s growth strategy.
Our radiometric level and density systems are installed on Drilling Rigs, Production Platforms, FPSOs and Oil Terminals and provide highly accurate and repeatable readings, – the base for a profitable and safe operation. For more information please see our product page: Oil & Gas Industry
Berthold was subject to an FPAL verification audit of all the aspects related to environmental protection, occupational health and safety, training of personnel and professional competence. This audit resulted in a report, where Berthold scored particularly well. Read more
Special applications require special solutions. It is not unusual that products where the level is measured contain natural radioactivity. For example, in the processing of uranium ores where the level of uranium sludge is measured.
