Optical Building Blocks Corporation (OBB) will be introducing the new EasyLifeTM FP Fluorescence Polarimeter at next week’s SPIE Photonics West Exhibit at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, California.
The EasyLife™ FP is a new low cost bench-top filter fluorometer that is an ideal research tool and QC/QA instrument for a variety of fluorescence polarization assays. The EasyLife™ FP is a T-format fluorescence polarimeter with monochromatic excitation and detection channels, temperature control and a magnetic stirrer. It is suitable for routine fluorescence or fluorescence polarization assays as well as for assay development and laboratory analysis.
The EasyLife™ FP fluorescence polarimeter combines low detection limits with robustness and easy handling. Typical application areas are homogenous fluorescence immunoassays and fluorescence polarization immunoassays (competitive and non-competitive) as well as studies and evaluations of slow reaction kinetics (mycotoxins, hormones, peptides, haptens, proteins).
Another common application is protein coupling immunoassays based on the reaction of highly specific antibodies with the analyte. It is often necessary to couple analytes (antigens, haptens) to proteins for the production of antibodies. The EasyLife™ FP carries out coupling reactions using the proteins of your choice (BSA, OVA etc.).
