BERTHOLD TECHNOLOGIES GmbH & Co. KG is a privately run company that provides cutting-edge life science technology to customers around the world, both developing and producing its bioanalytical system solutions exclusively in Germany. Its comprehensive product portfolio includes small standalone readers (such as microvolume spectrometers and luminometers), various multimode microplate readers, microplate washers and microplate workstations, RIA and ELISA automation products, HPLC radio detectors and high-end imaging systems. BERTHOLD has its sights set on helping its customers significantly improve people’s quality of life with the aid of its user-friendly, high-precision bioanalytical solutions. At LABVOLUTION 2019 in Hannover, BERTHOLD is unveiling another device that goes toward making this mission a reality - the new Sirius II LB 9526 tube luminometer.
As the name suggests, luminometers are used to measure the luminescence of reagents. BERTHOLD TECHNOLOGIES was one of the early adopters of this measuring system, which was first introduced in the 1960s, and has developed and released more than twenty different types over the last four decades - covering everything from tubes to microplates. In fact, BERTHOLD TECHNOLOGIES remains the undisputed market leader in the field to this day. The new, supersensitive Sirius II LB 9526 tube luminometer sports a uniquely compact design, features a built-in touchscreen computer, and can be equipped with up to two injectors. Its light collection capabilities are maximized thanks to the detector's proximity to the sample and optimized light reflectors surrounding it.
