Providing coincidence counting, a unique patented configuration with two photomultiplier tubes that simultaneously detect signal, the MicroBeta2 system ensures high efficiency and extremely low background for a variety of radionuclides. Also, it features time-resolved liquid scintillation counting (TR-LSC), delivering improved counting performance for opaque plates where traditional coincidence counting isn't possible.

More assays, from one powerful system

  • Advanced Detection – Enables detection of beta and gamma isotopes, as well as glow luminescence
  • Filtration-based Receptor Binding Assays – Deliver utmost sensitivity using either UniFilter plates or MicroBeta filtermats
  • Solid-phase Homogeneous Assays – Best-in-class performance in all solid scintillation assays, including beadbased scintillation proximity assays
  • Cell Proliferation – Analyze cell proliferation through filter-based 3H-labeled thymidine uptake
  • Cell Cytotoxicity – 51Cr release assays for cell cytotoxicity using LumaPlate technology or liquid scintillation counting (LSC)
  • Reporter Gene Assays – Glow capabilities for dual reporter gene assays using luciferase and beta lactamase
  • Metabolic Studies – HPLC fraction measurements using LumaPlate technology or traditional cocktail-based approaches in 4-mL tubes
  • Liquid Scintillation Counting – Scaled down traditional vial-based liquid scintillation counting assays to microplates
  • Wipe Test – No need to reserve a second counter for monitoring contamination in your laboratory
  • More Options – Luminometric ELISAs, kinase assays, radioimmunoassays (RIAs), and many others

Consumables and peripherals optimized to get you results:

  • Plate Capacity: 16
  • Plate Formats: 24/96 well
  • Microplate scintillation and luminescence counter – Microplates in 24-, 96-, and 384-well formats; rigid opaque plates for luminescence assays; and isoplates and flexible plates for liquid scintillation counting with cocktails
  • Filter plates, LumaPlate, and more
  • Choose the right filter for your assay from different filter plates like UniFilter plates, or MicroBeta2 -specific filtermats
  • Scale down your vial counting assays with LSC minivials (4 mL) to improve throughput
  • Eppendorf® microtubes, up to 2 mL
