A 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.

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.
