A new product series of FWS fluorimeters is now offered by Spectrolight.
These approaches are less expensive than the fluorometric ones because they only require a spectrophotometer, which is less expensive and more commonly available in most laboratories than a fluorimeter, but they still have the disadvantage of requiring liquid cultures, long sample processing times, and the usage of some toxic or dangerous compounds.
For this study we measured GAA activity using a plate reader fluorimeter with 4-methylumbelliferyl-a-glucoside as substrate as well as with the MS/MS assay.
Detection of the copied viral material also requires expensive components such as fluorimeters. The complexity and expense of traditional PCR machines have been major hurdles in moving PCR devices outside of laboratories and into the clinics where they are most needed.
The protein interaction with complexes 1 and 2 was examined in 96-well plates used for fluorescence assays on a fluorimeter Synergy H1.
The water-soluble vitamin E equivalent Trolox was used as standard, and fluorescence decay, as a result of the radical attack, was measured at 485 and 520 nm (Spectramax Gemini EM fluorimeter, Molecular Devices, Sunnyvale, USA).
Increase in fluorescence due to extracellular DNA (ecDNA) release was measured in presence of 10 [micro]M Sytox Orange DNA-binding dye for 5 hours with a microplate fluorimeter. DNA release is presented as either relative fluorescence units (RFU) or percentage of maximal DNA released achieved by saponin treatment [4,20].
The fluorescence intensity was measured using a microtiter plate fluorimeter with excitation at 490 [+ or -] 10 nm and emission at 530 [+ or -] 10 nm and normalized to the protein concentration.
[9] using an HPLC system consisted of quaternary pumps, vacuum degassers, thermostated autosampler, DAD detector, and fluorimeter detector (Agilent 1100 series).
Fluorescence was measured using a Fluostar Omega (BMG Biotech) fluorimeter with setup excitation at 485 nm and emission at 540 nm.
