Radiation Interference Discrimination (RID)

If you want to continue to measure with impending external radiation, then the LB 470 series with RID option is required. The measurement continues without interruption, even if external radiation is present.

Cosmic radiation

The earth is continuously exposed to high energy radiation originating from outside the solar system – a discovery that was honored with the Nobel Prize in 1936.

Long-term stability of a detector

The long-term stability of a detector is extremely important for a consistently high quality measurement performance and accuracy during the entire operation.

Detector sensitivity

The detectors sensitivity describes how efficiently radiation is converted into a useable signal (i. e.”counts”).

Choosing the best filter combination is very important to achieve the best performance in any fluorescence-based assay. Learn more about our recommendations.
As a rule of thumb, white microplates are used for luminescence and black ones are used for fluorescence, but there are many other plate types and assays.
In this article you will find the formula to convert from Irradiance (in W/m²) into quantum flux (in µE) when wavelength is expressed in nm.
Some of our instrument software packages require registration for full (or any) functionality. You need to register your software license to obtain the passwords which are required to unlock the software on your PC.
Priming injectors prevents splashing and contamination of the injector tips with reagents. Learn more about how to prime injectors.
The choice depends mainly on which specific functions and features you need for your application. Here you will find a detailed comparison table.
