Anniversary Lottery at Berthold Technologies
News Aug 27, 2009
A lottery has been established as part of the anniversary activities to enable the valued customers of BERTHOLD TECHNOLOGIES to participate in our celebrations. Until October 15th 2009 every interested scientist may register on our website www.Berthold.com/bio/lottery. After the registration period has been closed, a total of 3 microplate luminometers CentroPRO will be awarded. One of these instruments will be awarded directly at the Biotechnica Exhibition at the BERTHOLD TECHNOLOGIES stand E02 (hall 9).
CentroPRO is the newest member of the microplate luminometer family of Berthold Technologies. The instrument is characterized by
? Easy operation via the innovative instrument software ICEware:
wizard guided definition of measurement parameters
various export formats (Excel, Adobe PDF, text)
? High sensitivity due to Single Photon Counting technology and low noise detectors:
less than 20 amol ATP and 7.5 zmol Firefly luciferase respectively
? Big dynamic range over 6 decades
? Small footprint with a width of only 30 cm
? All important glow-type luminescence applications
CentroPRO is a universally applicable luminometer for research and routine use. It enables the measurement of all important glow-type luminescence applications: e.g. reporter genes, dual re-porter genes, ATP, cell viability, caspases, kinases, proteases, monoaminoxidase or Mycoplasma contamination.
Previous work by the International Multiple Sclerosis Genetics Consortium (IMSGC) has identified 233 genetic risk variants. However, these only account for about 20% of overall disease risk, with the remaining genetic culprits proving elusive. A new study has tracked down four of these hard-to-find genes.READ MORE
