Application Note: Determination of Antioxidant Capacity on the Thermo Scientific Varioskan LUX Multimode Reader
15 June 2017

This application note describes a method to measure the oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) of different food and beverage samples with a fluorometric assay using the Thermo Scientific™ Varioskan™ LUX multimode microplate reader. Microplate reader handling and data analysis were controlled by the Thermo Scientific™ SkanIt™ software. We show that with the Varioskan LUX reader, determination of the antioxidant capacity of samples is very fast, sensitive and accurate.
