Applications for the LS 45 Fluorescence Spectrometer
As industry standards in bioscience and pharmaceutical applications change and evolve, the LS 45 answers the demands of many labs employing fluorescence measurements in a myriad of industries. In addition to simply measuring fluorescence for the purpose of obtaining data sets, the LS 45 can also be used for curing, photo bleaching/whitening, fingerprinting purposes and more.
  • Academic: Cell biology, cellular toxicity/viability, molecular toxicity, protein folding/unfolding, receptor binding studies, teaching (simple assays, DNS, and protein quantification), research (assay development, cell-based work), apoptosis studies, and phagocytosis/oxidative processes
  • Agricultural: Resistance assays, pesticide tracing, chlorophyll determinations, crop protection, genetic modification and plant genetics
  • Cell Biology: Cell studies(viability, quantification, proliferation, adhesion), cytotoxicity, reporter gene and apoptosis
  • Clinical: Assays (enzyme, substrate, toxicity), porphyrins, steroids, vitamin and amine studies
  • Environmental: Pesticide detection, ground-water tracing, oil contamination of water, chlorophyll determination of toxic algae, exhaust gas composition, water purity, uranium and aluminum determination and biomass
  • Enzymology: Protease assays, inhibition studies, surfactant studies and kinetic assays
  • Immunology: Fluorescent enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays, cell proliferation/activation, and tumor necrosis factor
  • Industrial: Crack tracing (aerospace), security inks, coding phosphors, brightening/whitening reagents, ultraviolet stabilizers and plasticizers, crude oil fingerprinting, and postage stamp marking
  • Inorganic: Aluminum, lead, magnesium, manganese, selenium, zinc, and tin
