Product News: Hidex microplate reader opens new applications in vascular and neurodegenerative disease studies

08 Feb 2007

Evaluation of the Hidex Chameleon microplate reader revealed that the higher luminescence sensitivity of the reader is essential for the measurement of small changes in superoxidegeneration from living vascular cells under culture conditions.

Other fluorescent dyes sensitive to reactive oxygen species can be simultaneously detected by this microplate reader to confirm findings with lucigenin chemiluminescence.

The high sensitivity multi-technology capability of the Chameleon microplate reader makes it an ideal bench research apparatus for studies of oxidative stress in models of vascular, neurodegenerative and other diseases.
