Most portableare designed only to discriminate if an area is contaminated or not, and hence offer low sensitivity and reduced dynamic range. In contrast, the Junior offers a performance similar to those of laboratory tube luminometers: it can detect less than 50 amol ATP/tube and has a dynamic range larger than 6 orders of magnitude.
The Junior can be operated independently from a mains supply for many hours, as it is equipped with rechargeable batteries; spare battery sets are available, so you can continue working for as long as you need. In the lab, the instrument can be connected to a mains supply thereby automatically recharging the batteries.
With a weight of only 2 Kg and its small size the Junior can be carried and taken to the sampling location for measurements on site. A metal transport case providing space for the Junior and accessories is an ideal solution for outdoor use.
