  • Review date: 21 May 2015

  • Application Area: Measuring luminescence from dinoflagellate luminescence components

  • FB 12 Single Tube Luminometer

"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."

  • Application Area:ROS detection

  • FB 12 Single Tube Luminometer

"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."

  • Application Area:estimation of global ROS levels in semen, follicular & amniotic fluid

  • FB 12 Single Tube Luminometer

"Yes I would definitely recommend to others and I am now buying another 180 well luminometer from Berthold and have a single tube luminometer. machine is very simple to use and reliable."

Description

The Gold Standard for Glow Luminescence

  • Ultrasensitive Photon Counting Detector
  • Total flexibility in Sample Format
  • Standalone Operation or PC Operation


FB12 Concept

The FB12 system is the ideal choice for stable glow luminescence of single samples from a variety of sample formats. FB12 Luminometer combines a very small footprint with excellent sensitivity and outstanding ease of use.

In stand-alone mode FB12 is ready for standard measurements. Samples are readily loaded on a pull out-drawer. Closing the sample drawer automatically initiates the measurement without pressing any key. An external printer may be connected optionally.

The modular Windows® Luminometer PC-Software or the Pocket PC-Luminometer Software can further enhance performance by organizing the measurement dialog and data evaluation. 

FB12 Applications

FB12 is the instrument of choice for all luminescent glow type applications performed in single sample format, for example:

  • Reporter gene assays, including dual-reporter assays
  • ATP assays
  • Cell proliferation, cytotoxicity and biomass assays
  • Apoptosis assays
  • Detection of mycoplasma contaminations in cell cultures
  • Cellular luminescence / reactive oxygen species
  • Environmental toxicity and mutagenicity assays


The FB12 Luminometer has been evaluated by the Research Department staff at Promega Corporation and has been certified for use with their Dual Luciferase "DLReady" (TM Promega Corp.) assay.
