LUMIstar OPTIMA Microplate Luminometer

Product Description
lumistar-optima.jpg

The LUMIstar OPTIMA is a luminescence microplate reader that is designed for the widest possible range of applications based on luminescence modes of detection:

• Reporter gene assays luciferase, e.g. ß-galactosidase, gene activities with luminescence substrates (luminol, acridinium esters, dioxetanes.)
• Cell-based assays , e.g. cytotoxicity and proliferation, intracellular Ca2+ with aequorin
• Dual Luciferase
• Renilla, Gaussia, Firefly, Cypridina
• ATP assays
• Luminescent immunoassays
• GUS assays (ß-glucuronidase)
• ROS (reactive oxygen species)
• Enzyme activity assays
• Nucleic acid detection (PCR Quantification)
• ADP-GloTM
• Multi-tox Glo

BMG LABTECH's Digital Photon Integration (DPI) technology and programmable gain control give the LUMIstar OPTIMA the best sensitivity, with an extended linear dynamic range. By incorporating on-board reagent injectors that measure at the point of injection, flash kinetic reactions can be measured in as little as 20 microsecond steps. The faster transport system allows 96-well plates to be read in as little as 50 measurements per second.

Additional outstanding features:
The LUMIstar OPTIMA comes with incubation, including temperature-regulated heating plates above and below the entire plate movement area to provide uniform incubation up to 45°C or even up to 60°C. A gas vent connection can be added, offering a tremendous advantage for assays where special or inert gas is needed when working with atmospheric gas sensitive samples. Up to two on-board reagent injectors can be added, both simultaneously accessing the measurement position and providing unlimited possibilities for fast kinetic assays. The automatic gain calculation provides the optimum dynamic range for each assay.

Upgradeable to FLUOstar OPTIMA or POLARstar OPTIMA
Due to the modular concept of the LUMIstar OPTIMA, whenever the need for fluorescence or absorbance based experiments arrive, the LUMIstar OPTIMA can be upgraded to a FLUOstar OPTIMA. It can also be upgraded to a POLARstar OPTIMA to include fluorescence polarization and Simultaneous Dual Emission Detection.

Control and MARS Data Evaluation Software
For first time users, the LUMIstar OPTIMA Control Software offers an easy to use Quick start feature. But for advanced users, it offers flexible definition of microplate layouts, filter selection, interval and injection times, measurement and shaking parameters. During the measurement, it is possible to observe the data with the Real Time Graphics feature. While the Standard Curve Wizard creates an easy step-by-step calculation of a standard curve and the Template Manager is an excellent tool for building complex data processing protocols. With MARS, all data analysis is simply done with one click of the mouse.

Loss Of Y Chromosome Increases Risk Of Alzheimer’s
Men with blood cells that do not carry the Y chromosome are at greater risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. This is in addition to an increased risk of death from other causes, including many cancers. These new findings by researchers at Uppsala University could lead to a simple test to identify those at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
Making Virus Sensors Cheap and Simple
Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin demonstrated the ability to detect single viruses in a solution containing murine cytomegalovirus (MCMV).
Heart Defect Prediction Technology Could Lead to Earlier, More Informed Treatment
Experimental method uses genetics-guided biomechanics, patient-specific stem cells.
Biosensor Detects Molecules Linked to Cancer, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's
Novel biosensor has been proven capable of detecting molecules associated with neurodegenerative diseases and some types of cancer.
Big Data Can Save Lives
The sharing of genetic information from millions of cancer patients around the world could be key to revolutionising cancer prevention and care, according to a leading cancer expert from Queen's University Belfast.
Fast, Simple Test for Colitis
A minimally invasive screening for ulcerative colitis using emerging infrared technology could be a rapid and cost-effective method for detecting disease that eliminates the need for biopsies and intrusive testing of the human body.
Scans Reveal Babies of Mothers with Gestational Diabetes Have More Body Fat
Researchers at Imperial College London have found that the babies born to mothers with gestational diabetes have more body fat at two months of age compared to babies born to healthy mothers.
New Device Could Improve Cancer Detection
UBC researchers develop a microfluidic device to capture circulating tumor cells.
