Description The LUMIstar OPTIMA is a fully automated microplate luminescence reader that is designed for the widest possible range of applications based on luminescence labels:
  • Reporter gene assays luciferase, -galactosidase, gene activities with luminescence substrates (luminol, acridinium esters, dioxetanes..)
  • Luminescent Immunoassays
  • Cell-based assays (cytotoxity and proliferation, intracellular Ca2+ with aequorin)
  • ATP assays
  • GUS assays (-glucuronidase)
  • ROS (reactive oxygen species)
  • Enzyme activity assays
  • Nucleic acid detection (PCR Quantification)
BMG LABTECHs Digital Photon Integration (DPI) technology and the programmable Gain control give the LUMIstar OPTIMA the best sensitivity, with extended linear dynamic range. By incorporating on-board reagent injectors, flash kinetic reactions can be measured in as little as 20 ms. The faster transport system allows 96-well plates to be read in as little as 20 seconds.

The most flexible hardware and software features for all your applications!

Upgradeable to FLUOstar OPTIMA
Whenever the need for fluorescence based experiments arrives, have the LUMIstar OPTIMA upgraded to a FLUOstar OPTIMA. With the introduction of the LUMIstar OPTIMA this is now possible.

Built-in filter wheel
Be ready for new luminescence assays with the need for measuring at distinctwavelengths such as BRET.

Incubation
Temperature-regulated heating plates above and below the entire plate movement area provide uniform incubation up to 45C (optional 60C).

On-board reagent injectors
The LUMIstar OPTIMA can be equipped with two syringe pumps, each simulaneously accesses the measurement position providing unlimited possibilities for fast kinetic assays. The liquid system is totally enclosed, eliminating the fiber-optic effect of liquid tubing. You can adjust injection speed and timing that is appropriate for the assay within the control software. A unique assay development feature in the software allows the researchers to determine optional reagent volumes using individual injection volumes for each well.

Endpoint, slow and fast kinetic measurements
For flash reactions, you can select well-mode for fast injections and as short as 20 ms for interval time. Choose plate-mode for glow reactions that have longer kinetic times or endpoint test runs. Either way, an assay can be defined with up to 250 kinetic points at specified time intervals down to the millisecond range.

Top and bottom reading
The reader has top and bottom optic reading capability. Cell-based assays are closer to the bottom optics, therefore allowing more sensitive measurements. It is also possible to inject into a 384-well plate and it is quickly determined if top or bottom reading returns the best measurement data.

Robot compatibility
Incorporated into a wide array of robotic systems via DDE interface and the fast loading system. For rapid mid-throughput plate handling, BMG LABTECH offers a Stacker with optional barcode reader that can be integrated with the LUMIstar OPTIMA.

Software with straightforward control and powerful data evaluation part
The Windows based OPTIMA software provides an extensive range of possibilities in both test parameter definitions and data reduction. The control software allows flexible definition of microplate layouts, interval and injection times, measurement and shaking parameters. During the measurement it is possible to observe the data with the Real Time Graphics feature. The evaluation software provides all the macros needed for fast data calculation. Five pre-programmed worksheets allow averaging of replicates, blank substraction, signal plots, standard curves, and unknown sample calculation.
