BMG LABTECH now offers the Atmospheric Control Unit (ACU) - a complete solution for fully regulated independent control of both oxygen (O2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) levels within users multimode microplate reader.

Available for the entire range of Omega microplate readers, the microprocessor controlled ACU offers dual independent control of both gases within the microplate reading chamber.

The microprocessor controlled unit can regulate CO2 (0 - 20%) and O2 (1 - 19%) independently, making it unnecessary to change gas cylinders or piped gas supplies to reproduce certain physiological conditions needed for cell-based assays.

When used in combination with the Omega’s other features such as extended temperature control up to 65°C and shaking (orbital, double orbital and linear), users can reproduce most physiological conditions making cell-based assays more biologically relevant.

The Omega series of microplate readers can measure multiple detection modes including Fluorescence Polarization (FP), Fluorescence Intensity, Time-Resolved Fluorescence (TRF), TR-FRET, AlphaTechnologies®, High-Performance Luminescence and UV/Vis spectrometer based absorbance.

Applications can be run in a dedicated mode or a combination of all modes to acquire all the data users need in a single experiment.

The multimode capabilities, together with the Atmospheric Control Unit ,are especially advantageous for a variety of applications including Mammalian Cell Assays, Stem Cell Assays, Hypoxia, Cell Viability, Cell Proliferation, Migration Studies, Invasion Assays, Intracellular pH, Angiogenesis, Ischemia / Reperfusion, and many more.

Incorporating the ACU into an Omega microplate reader, extended cell based experiments can now even be performed without user intervention, providing a true walk away assay solution.

This makes the BMG LABTECH ACU the most flexible gas control system available in a microplate reader.
