The new Lumat is athat uses state-of-the-art technology based on more than 40 years of experience engineering and designing luminometers. The luminometer supports all basic luminescence technologies including:
Thanks to a stringent selection of photomultipliers working in photon counting mode and more than 40 years of experience building, the new Lumat offers excellent luminescence sensitivity: <1 zmol firefly luciferase and <1 amol ATP/tube (high sensitivity model) can be reliably detected.
The Lumat can be equipped with up to 2 JET injectors with variable volumes. The ultra-fast injection speed of JET-injectors eliminates any delay between injection and measurement and is critical to measure fast reactions, e.g. for flash luminescence measurements.
Berthold Technologies' JET injectors use Teflon bellows for accurate and fast injections and guarantee most efficient mixing as well as extreme longevity.
The measurement of individual samples one after the other can be time-consuming. The Lumat has a turret mechanism that makes this job easier and increases your throughput. Thanks to its motor-driven revolving magazine mechanism based on a rotating chamber for two tubes (one for measuring and one for loading and unloading), so you can prepare and insert the next sample while the previous one is still measuring.
is a flexible software enabling easy data acquisition, analysis and reporting using Berthold Technologies' instruments. It has been optimized for different microplate and tube formats. LightCompass® features all the functions you can expect from an advanced scientific software, such as flexible creation of measurement protocols, curve fitting, qualitative analysis and compliance with FDA 21 CFR Part 11.
