Based on the experience of developing and building luminometers for more than 30 years the Lumat³ is a tube luminometer with state-of-the-art technology. The luminometer supports all basic luminescence technologies including:

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

Highlights

Luminescence detection at its best

Thanks to a stringent selection of photomultipliers working in photon counting mode and more than 40 years of experience building luminometers, the Lumat³ offers excellent luminescence sensitivity: less than 5 amol ATP/tube for the standard version or as low as 1 amol ATP/tube for the High sensitivity version can be reliably detected.

 

JET injectors - highest accuracy, speed and cell-friendliness

The Lumat³ 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.

  • Accurate pipetting of small volumina: regardless of whether you want to inject large or small volumes, JET injectors ensure high accuracy and more than 98% accuracy over the entire volume range
  • Low maintenance costs: frictionless operation for extended lifetime
  • Cell-friendly performance: cell-friendly materials and negligible shear forces enable worry-free injection of cell suspensions, e.g. in Aequorin-based calcium assays

Convenient sample switching mechanism

The measurement of individual samples one after the other can be time-consuming. The Lumat³ has a turret mechanism that makes this job easier and increases your throughput. Thanks to its motor-driven rotating chamber for two tubes (one for measuring and one for loading and unloading), you can prepare and insert the next sample while the previous one is still measuring, and quickly switch from one to the other, making the measurement of multiple samples convenient and fast.

Convenient Software options

Berthold Technologies’ ICE software is a wizard-driven software that is very simple to use. There are several versions of ICE sotware available:

  • ICE Research for single, dual and kinetics measurements.
  • ICE Immunoassay for single measurements with curve fitting and cut-off evaluation.
  • ICE Advanced to combine all capabilities of both ICE Research and Immunoassay.
