The BioLuminizer® is a new detection system from CAMAG developed specifically for toxicity screening of complex mixtures through the detection of bioluminescence on HPTLC plates. After separation the plate is immersed in a luminescent bacterial suspension. The reaction takes place within a very short time such that all zones with inhibitory or toxic effects appear as black zones on the luminescent chromatogram. This method is a fast, low-cost way of demonstrating biological activity.
The BioLuminizer® offers high resolution and sensitivity to detect even the smallest change in intensity. The system has been specially designed to balance sensitivity, cost-effectiveness and ease of use.
