AB-2550 Kronos Dio

Bioluminescence measurement system for living cells and tissues

Kronos Dio(AB-2550) is a luminometer for detecting bioluminescence in living cells and tissues by PMT. It is available to control temperature and CO2 gas concentration inside Kronos Dio such as an incubator for cell & tissue culturing. Besides Kronos Dio gives superior performance for multi-color assay, which can detect different colors of luminescence up to three in the same time by an internal optical filtering system. Kronos Dio is performed to detect high sensitivity for dim and weak luminescence consecutively in culture samples such as cells and tissues in 35mm culture dishes for a long time. Therefore, it is not required to prepare several samples for measuring each time point to chase alteration in chronologic bioluminescence. In this way, it is very reasonable and convenient against conventional ways and methods in terms of saving time, accuracy, and efficiency.

*GPC laboratory CO. LTD. provides a useful cell line carrying luciferase as a reporter gene for assessing circadian rhythm by Bmal1 gene expression.

Simple analysis results

KronoAnalyzer handles a variety of time-series data optimally and allows for simultaneous comparative analysis of multiple files. The simple analysis results consisting of Period, Acrophase, Amplitude, and peak/trough values make it easy to compare.

Group Settings ⇒ Overlapping

Each well can be classified by experimental conditions with any name in the number of samples (n) < subgroup < group.

The plate layout is also semi-automatically set by simply clicking the well.

Number of samples (n) < subgroup < 1 to 192 (two 96-well plates) samples can be selected for both groups.

Grouping together allows you to overlap and compare graphs within the same file, not to mention Kronos series files, but also Excel files (with templates).
