This instrument was the best investment the lab has made in 20 years.
Application Area: Filtration-based receptor binding assays
"I recommend the MicroBeta2 without hesitation. The flexibility you have for your samples was a major decision maker. Microplates in 24-, 96-, and 384-well formats; rigid opaque plates for luminescence assays; and isoplates and flexible plates for liquid scintillation counting with cocktails. Filter plates, LumaPlate, UniFilter plates, or MicroBeta2 -specific filtermats or scale down your vial counting assays with LSC minivials. This instrument increased our lab's assay throughput 20-fold."
The MicroBeta2 System provides advanced radiometric and luminescent detection abilities for GPCRs, kinases, reporter gene assays, and traditional liquid scintillation counting. Providing coincidence counting, a unique patented configuration with two photomultiplier tubes that simultaneously detect signal, the MicroBeta2 System ensures high efficiency and extremely low background for a variety of radionuclides.
The MicroBeta2 System features time-resolved liquid scintillation counting (TR-LSC), delivering improved counting performance for opaque plates where traditional coincidence counting isn't possible.
