Sensitive, Ready-to-Use Microplate Luminometer 

GloMax® Navigator is an easy-to-use microplate luminometer integrated with Promega chemistries for superior luminescence assay performance. The instrument comes ready to use—simply unpack it, plug it in and begin your experiments. You can also interpret results using integrated data analysis software.

GloMax® Navigator provides superior sensitivity and dynamic range for both strong and weak bioluminescence experimental samples as well as seamless integration with Promega  bioluminescence assays, including gene reporter, cell-based and biochemical assays. The microplate luminometer features optional dual injectors to measure both glow- and flash-based luminescent reactions in 96-well plates.

The luminometer is operated by an integrated Tablet PC, which provides quick and easy navigation through the control options. Exporting your results is simple with a variety of options, including export to your local data network, USB flash drive and cloud-based storage location.

Accurate Results from Every Well

There are three ways that microplate readers can affect how much useful information you get from each plate. Poor sensitivity may cause you to miss low-level samples that could be the “hit” you are looking for. Letting the signal from bright wells spill into adjacent wells allows crosstalk to occur and skews your experimental results. And a narrow detection range limits the accuracy and reproducibility that your work requires. With the GloMax® plate readers, you can rest easy and have confidence in your results.

Superior sensitivity so you don’t miss hits

GloMax® microplate readers offer superior sensitivity and auto-gain adjustment letting you measure weak and strong signals on the same plate.

GloMax plate readers minimize crosstalk
Masking so crosstalk doesn’t mislead your results

The masking design of GloMax® microplate readers means you can be confident that the results from each well are not skewed by signal from neighboring wells.

GloMax plate readers detect a broad signal range
Broad detection range so you don’t limit your experiments

With the broad detection range of GloMax® microplate readers, you can measure signals ranging from high intensity to near physiological levels.
