BioLuminizer® 2

The BioLuminizer® 2 is a detection system specifically designed to detect bioluminescence on HPTLC plates. It is consisting of a compartment excluding any extraneous light, climate-controlled for extended stability of the plate, and a 16 bit CCD digital camera of high resolution and high quantum efficiency. It features ergonomic design and easy, intuitive handling in stand-alone mode using the special software.

With the BioLuminizer® 2 bioactivity can be detected and registered economically and with the short response time. Special antibacterial protection measures are not necessary, as the luminescent bacteria Allivibrio fischeri are non-pathogenic.

Hyphenating HPTLC and bioassay is an excellent tool for identification of single toxic compounds in complex sample matrices. The method is suitable for the detection of toxins in foodstuff, beverages, cosmetics, wastewater, drinking water, and for the detection of bioactivity in natural products. After chromatographic separation of the complex sample the plate is immersed in a suspension of luminescent bacteria Allivibrio fischeri. The reaction takes place within a very short time. All zones with inhibitory or toxic effects appear as dark zones on the luminescent plate background.

Key Features:

  • Cooled 16 bit CCD camera
  • Optimized plate compartment to keep bacteria moist
  • Small footprint
  • Easy to clean
  • HPTLC plates (20 x 10 cm, 10 x 10 cm)
  • Stand-alone operation using BioLuminizer® 2 software
