The MicroBeta2 and MicroBeta2 LumiJET deliver advanced capabilities for radiometric and luminescence detection

Upgrade to the MicroBeta2 and you will see the difference!

  • Modern Windows based software provides a user friendly familiar interface
  • Uncompromized counting performance with all PKI consumables including Lumaplates, Flashplates, and UniFilter plates
  • Improved throughput for flash luminescence applications, reduced reagent volumes
  • Improved data quality with live cell assays
  • Enables dual agonist and antagonist screen with aequorin reagents with single sample and cell load in single plate
  • Real time visualization of assay performance
  • Improved throughput, e.g., robotic plate loading is 2x faster than in old MicroBetas; with 1s/well integration time 384-well plate luminescence processing time is 40% faster with 6-detector instrument
  • Better resolution with kinetic curve reconstruction. Faster events can be captured
