Reliable instrument that gives very reproducible results.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Dual-Luziferase Assays in 384well plates and ROS Burst Assays

"The instrument can be used with 96 and also 384 well plates, thereby saving money on the assay costs. The results are very reproducible (we did compare it with two other competing products). As long as the injectors are cleaned after usage and stored properly, the device is very reliable. The After Sales Contact is also very friendly and helpful - Berthold Technologies does not only want to sell their products, they also feel responsible for their instruments and customers afterwards. Although the software is not self-explaining completely on the first try, it can easily be used after a short introduction by other users. For all of these reasons we are very satisfied with the CentroXS 3 LB 960 High Sensitivity Microplate Luminometer and would buy it again."

Good product overall ... would recommend to other labs.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Luciferase assays

"Sensitivity is pretty damn good for a luminometer... better than Tecan we had used elsewhere....software could use some upgrading if manual exp. were to be done... we don’t use injectors that’s why!!!"

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyze of gene expression using luminescence assay

"The instrument is very sensitive and accurate, gives easily reproducible results. The only small negative moment is speed (works extremely slow)."

Good Instrument for Luciferase assays and other luminescence applications
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Dual Luciferase reporter gene expression quantification

"The instrument was used to measure the luciferase reporter gene expression in HEK293 cell line using Promega's Dual luciferase assay kit. We have obtained excellent reproducible results with the instrument. The instrument is very sensitive and easy to use. The autoinjectors are very good."

Great equipment, reproducible and reliable results. So far so good.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Assembly kinetics of amyloid proteins

"We use the CentroXS 3 LB 960 Microplate Luminometer to measure the kinetics of amyloid formation using ThT probes. This equipment gives reproducible results and sensitivity comparable to other products. We have not had the need to call customer support yet, we have not had any problem with the luminometer yet. As of now, we are happy with this equipment."

Review date: 06 Sep 2016 | CentroXS 3 LB 960 High Sensitivity Microplate Luminometer
The Centro XS³ is the microplate luminometer with the best sensitivity available. The selected lowest-noise detector and the propietary hightly efficient design of the optical path guarantee detection limits so far unmet. Like in the Centro the optical design eliminates crosstalk to a level it cannot be detected any more.

Any opaque microplate in 96 well or in 384 well format can be measured using the specific optical setup.
Up to 3 independently controlled injectors with variable volume give entire freedom in the selection of assay type and assay sequence. The volume is adjustable from 10 to 100 µl – perfectly fitting the demands for reagent addition into 96 well plates. 3 modes each with variable speed of the integrated shaker to enhance mixing and optimise sample distribution before measurement in long term kinetics.
 
Preferred Applications

• Reporter gene assays (incl. DLR)
• ATP determination
• Cell viability
• CALUX® Assays
• Kinase activity
• Caspase activity
