Kronos dio

A luminometer for real-time reporter assay with 8 dish incubator and multicolor measurement system

Kronos dio AB-2550-kronosDioA luminescence monitoring tool to observe gene expressions with bioluminescent markers under long-term culture. Can be used in studies of internal biological clock, circadian rhythms in organisms, gene silencing, drug stimulation, etc. Kronos Dio is equiped with cell culture system within its housing to provide real-time periodical luminescence measurement with multi-color luciferase assay, enabling users to analyse the effects of complex factors influencing gene expression in the cell or the tissue. Internal temperature control (range: 20 to 45 °C) and carbon dioxide circulation allows for convenient cell culture over a long period of time.


Price: 36 650 USD

We are wanting to explore the ability of human breast cell lines to exhibit circadian rhythm.  We are also interested in influence of environmental toxicants on circadian rhythm as well as general gene regulation.  I felt that the Kronos dio would be the proper equipment to perform this task as it has a CO2 hook up and can monitor 3 colors at once.  Therefore, I could transfect the BASIC luciferase construct using one color and the gene of interest using a different luciferase and monitor reporter activity in real time.  
Observation that Irritant of Environmental toxin on Human’s breast cell lines reaction and changes.

ExiPrep™ 16 Plus

ExiPrep™ 16 Plus

Essential Reproducibility, Enhanced Reliability, Excellent Results
ExiPrep 16 Plus

ExiPrep 16 Plus is a laboratory automation system able to extract DNA or RNA from various biological samples including tissue, cell culture, whole blood, serum, plasma, swab, Bacteria, yeast, etc. It also features the ability to purify His-tag recombinant proteins. ExiPrep 16 Plus can handle up to 16 samples at once and includes optimized extraction protocols for many sample types so you get the unsurpassed results from your nucleic acid or protein purification. TheExiPrep 16 Plus has advanced features such as an intuitive touch screen a UV sterilization cycle and a unique contamination shield, each designed to provide an extra level of confidence in your results.

Features and Benefits

Easy-to-use: Built-in protocols started at the touch of a button
Walk-away automation: Maximizes your efficiency in the lab
Contamination shield: Eliminates the possibility of intra-assay cross-contamination
UV sterilization cycle after each run: Eliminates the possibility of inter-assay cross-contamination
Combined heating/.magnetic block: Increases elution and results in higher yields

• Easy-to-use Touchscreen interface
newsfigure3 The responsive 3.5 inch touchscreen enables simple instrument operation. From selecting sample-optimized protocols to turning the UV sterilization lamp on and off, the touchscreen is designed for optimal workflow. During instrument operation, the touchscreen will give real-time feedback on the progress of the extraction, maximizing user convenience.

• Preinstalled Optimized Protocols for Maximum Results
newsfigure4 ExiPrep 16 Plus and ExiPrep 16 Pro contain over 900 optimized protocols for nucleic acid extraction and protein purification. Each protocol is fine-tuned to sample and target type to give anybody reproducible results every experiment. The instrument software can also be upgraded through the network connection port so you can stay up-to-date with the best performing protocols.

• Automatic UV Sterilization Lamp
newsfigure5 The ExiPrep 16 Plus and ExiPrep 16 Pro have a powerful UV sterilization lamp that enables the user to sterilize the instrument chamber before and/or after every nucleic acid extraction or protein purification run. This prevents possible inter-assay cross-contamination that may occur on a busy work day.

• Contamination Shield
newsfigure6 ExiPrep 16 Plus comes with a contamination shield designed to protect the assay from cross-contamination during instrument operation. Any time the pipette tips are moving, the contamination shield will slide under the tips, therefore eliminating the possibility of intra-assay cross-contamination which is critical when working with multiple samples.

• Combined Magnetic/Heating Block
To increase nucleic acid extraction and protein purification efficiency, the ExiPrep 16 Plus has an integrated combined magnetic/heating block. The combination of bead magnetization and sample heating reduces experiment time and increases elution efficiency, resulting in increased sample yield. (Patent pending)Process: Read clockwise
