Advantages of the Luminoskan Ascent
High-performance optics with the Luminoskan Ascent
Luminoskan incorporates the latest optical design. Luminoskan Ascent can also be equipped with filters. The luminometer reads microplate formats from 1-96 and 384-well plates.
Versatility through dispenser system, incubator and shaker
For an easy and accurate addition of reagents, up to three dispensers can be fitted on-board the Luminoskan Ascent. The dispensers allow a precise delivery of reagents in 1 µl increments over an adjustable volume range of 1-1000µl. For assays requiring precise temperature control, Luminoskan Ascent features an on-board incubator. Built-in orbital shaking, another advanced feature, ensures effective mixing and speeds up reactions.
Complete robot compatibility with the Luminoskan Ascent
Robotic integration is simple, effective and easy to automate with the Luminoskan Ascent.
The plate carrier allows convenient access for different kinds of robotic arms. In addition, wall edges of the carrier have been beveled to aid the plate to slide down to the carrier.
Ascent Software is easy to integrate with robotic and LIMS systems. The execution of predefined assays can be controlled remotely and the software can be set up to export and import data automatically.
