Easy to use luminometer with a very long lifetime. Great support from field staff.
Application Area: Reporter gene assays: Transcription factor activity
"The Centro LB 960 was acquired back in 2004 for our lab and was in use for several years. At some time people stopped using it and it was stashed in the storage. By now, 10 years without a purpose our luminometer is needed for some luciferase based reporter assays and we wondered if the Centro is still fit for service. With only a little effort our sales representative could install drivers and software on a new PC (Win7) and confirm that our Centro worked flawlessly. We did not expect it to be operational after such a long period of time. The hardware is obviously very robust and working with the software interface is intuitive. We can't wait to use our Centro for producing good data."

"The Centro LB 960 is easy to program and user-friendly. It automatically generates a spreadsheet that can be exported to Excel. It has a small footprint so doesn't take up much bench space. Their customer service is excellent - you can always email a technical expert for help and their representative is very helpful."
The Centro is a high-performance, easy to use microplate luminometer for both, flash and glow luminescence applications. The optimized optical system provides lowest background and negligible crosstalk (10-6). Due to its superior sensitivity (XS version: < 1.8 zmol firefly luciferase) and wide dynam ic range (> 6 orders of magnitude), the Centro is ideally suited for all luminescent reporter gene assays, immunoassays (LIA, ILMA), cell-based and biochemical assays.
Centro benefits at a glance:
Have confidence in your results: Ultrasensitive design, excellent crosstalk reduction (10-6) and broad dynamic range (> 6 orders of magnitude) for superior performance.
