Promega helped our lab scale up drug discovery for bloodborne pathogens. Our most recent endeavor is a medium-low throughput robotic screening pipeline which compares conditionally-activated or-repressed parasites against our dose-response drug libraries in 384-well format assays.

Questions and Answers


Q: What instrument is right for my lab?
A: Key features to evaluate when choosing a luminescence, fluorescence or absorbance detection system include throughput needs (how many assays will you run?), flexibility (what types of assays will you be running?), portability (where will you be using the instrument?) and ease of use (how much set-up and training is required?).


Q: What types of service and support will I receive?
A: We supply both the reagents and the instrument, so one call to Promega answers any questions you may have about assay chemistries or instrument performance. All GloMax® plate readers come with integrated software that makes data analysis easy and are preloaded with protocols that allow you to run assays at the touch of a button.


Q: With shipping delays, when I will get my instrument?
GloMax Plate Readers ships within 2 business days of purchase and reagents ship within 24 hours of purchase during business days. We are proud that over 4000 of our products are in stock and ready to ship.

Study science in Real Time using GloMax with assays designed for long-term kinetics.

Live-cell kinetic assays are detection reagents that allow the same sample well to be repeatedly measured over multiple time points using a standard luminometer. This saves you time and effort, enabling you to collect more informative data in real time. Learn how you can get better quantitative data without cumbersome multi-plate setups or expensive, low-throughput instruments. Promega offers assays to detect cell health parameters, target engagement, reporter expression, targeted protein degradation and more with real-time, live cell assays compatible with the GloMax instruments..

Create the Perfect Pair with GloMax® Discover and Cytokine Assays

The GloMax® Discover has built-in non-linear regression programs and can rapidly interpolate unknown data without having to transfer data and analyze with commercial programs. The interpolated concentrations are conveniently displayed directly on the same image as the RLUs. Templates can be set up for a specific calibration curve and a particular method of interpolation, significantly improving efficiency.
