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 internal optical filtering system. Kronos Dio is performing 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 way and method in terms of saving time, accuracy and efficiency.
