Application Notes

 
Optimization of Instrument Settings and Measurement Parameters for Kinetic Fluorometric and Luminometric Assays
Application Note

When fluorometric and luminometric assays are performed in microplate format, a high number of samples can be analyzed at a time. The speed of the reaction kinetics of the assay determines the requirements for the detection instrument and measurement parameters for achieving the best possible performance of the assay.

Turbidometric Growth Curve Measurements and Liquid Evaporation Studies with a Microplate Photometer
Application Note

The turbidity of a liquid sample is traditionally measured either with a nephelometer or a photometer. The measure of turbidity (also called optical density, OD) refers to the scattering of light from the particles of the measured sample. When measuring turbidity of a bacterial culture, the amount of scattered light is directly proportional to the number of bacterial cells in the sample.

An Easy Determination of the Antioxidant Power of Beverage Samples with Thermo Scientific Multiskan FC Microplate Photometer
Application Note

Oxidative stress has been demonstrated to be involved in many diseases including atherochlerosis, Parkinson disease and cancer. Oxidative stress is caused by an imbalance between the production of reactive oxygen and a biological system’s ability to detoxify the reactive intermediates, or easily repair the resulting damages.
