  • Application Area: Analysis of ROS quantity and calcium kinetics in plant cells or seedlings

"The product is really easy to use for plant cells with luminescent probes. For example ROS detection. We use it also for calcium measurement with modified cells with aequorin gene. The results are in Relative Luminescence Unit and the system is really sensible to the signal."

  • Application Area:reporter and other bioluminescence assay of firefly, Renilla, Gaussia, or Nano luciferase

"The FB12 Luminometer has been a work horse in my lab, needing minor repairs only twice since I bought it 12 years ago. The instrument is rugged and easy to use even for inexperienced undergraduate or high school students, yet provides sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratios better than more expensive plate reading luminometers. I highly recommend the instrument."

  • Application Area:Measuring luminescence from dinoflagellate luminescence components

"There were quite a few wrinkles to iron out regarding stand-alone use and PC use; this was not at all straightforward. PC use is required for luminescence traces, stand alone gives only endpoint results -- this seems arbitrary. The computer program is reasonably user friendly but the method for interfacing between luminometer and the computer (opting out of standalone) is very clunky and annoying. It would be better to have an option that allows default use in one mode, and switching to the other mode should be easier. Also all of the options should be selectable through the computer rather than requiring some options to be selected at the luminometer even when using PC mode. There is some unknown weirdness with the injectors diluting the stock from which they draw -- still haven't figured out what the problem is. Despite these complaints, the luminometer is very high quality and I am getting very repeatable results."

"We have developed several assays based on this tech platform and purchased many units for own uses and for uses in our affiliated labs. I like the simplicity of the platform and we can develop assays for low skill technicians."

The 12 Single Tube Luminometer FB product is easy to use, the software is easy and can be used for kinetic measurements.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:I use this product for oxidative stress determination, including quenching free radical.

"12 Single Tube Luminometer FB product is easy to use, the software is easy and can be used including for kinetic measurements. I recommend the product for research laboratories in particular."

"It is easy to use it but I miss some injection system. It does need any after sales care. The price of analysis is friendly."
