CentroPRO LB 962 Microplate Luminometer

The Economic Microplate Luminometer

The CentroPRO LB 962 is universally applicable for research and routine. It comprises all basic features required for the measurement of glow-type luminescence applications like reporter genes, ATP determination or cell viability.

  • Glow-type Luminescence
  • Bio-Luminescence
  • Chemi-Luminescence

Omitting the complexity of superfluous options the CentroPRO is concentrated on the key features sensitivity and reliability.

ICE Software

The ease of use during protocol creation, measurement and data export has been achieved with the wizard-driven and clearly structured ICE software for the CentroPRO.

An unlimited number of protocols can be created and stored. The Protocol Wizard guides you through the specific settings of a protocol. Once a protocol is stored it can be re-called at any time for editing and measurement.

Starting a measurement, displaying results and exporting data is straight forward due to clearly structured screens and intuitive dialogues. During routine operation you simply select the required protocol, load the plate and start the measurement.

For documentation of results the powerful report function offers multiple selection options including the choice of saving the report in XLS, DOC, RTF or PDF formats or simply printing a hardcopy.


Solid and strip-based 96 well plates can be read.

Stability and Reliability

True photon counting and precise mechanics ensure measured values are trustable and reliable over the entire lifetime of the instrument.

Small Footprint

The design of the LB 962 CentroPRO requires minimum bench space.
