Your personal ELISA automation
Crocodile is a compact, fully automated, high performance ELISA workstation for low to medium throughput.
Under normal circumstances, running your ELISA assays required an hour and more of your attention. It was hard to plan other important activities while your assay was in process. Crocodile provides the same functionality as five individual instruments in a footprint similar to a standard stand-alone-reader. The use of Crocodile will reduce assay times by eliminating the need to move plates between dispenser, washer, incubator, shaker and reader. This allows you to perform other important activities and be even more productive.
A compact workstation that fits anywhere
Crocodile is only 26.5 cm wide. With all reagent bottles placed to the left of the instrument, it requires no more than 40 cm of bench space – the width of a typical ELISA reader.
Walk away automation
The workstation is designed for truly unattended operation. Simply insert the sample microplate which includes standards and samples, choose the assay protocol and leave the work to Crocodile.
Easy hardware setup
All functional modules are housed in one compact box. Connect the unit with the power outlet and a notebook or desktop computer. The tubing for wash and waste liquids is preinstalled, ready to be introduced into the wash and
In everyday use, preparing to use Crocodile won't give you any headaches. Wash, waste, and reagent bottles are readily accessible, right next to the instrument. The instrument requires minimal startup time.
Easy maintenance and reliable service
After every use, simply flush the tubing system. You will find that, as with all liquid handling instruments, the tubing system must be replaced from time to time. Accessing the required components and parts is very easy. Trained
technical staff is available to help if needed, and after-warranty service agreements are available in most geographical locations – to ensure troublefree operation over the lifetime of the instrument.
An open system
Crocodile will adapt to any ELISA format; including sandwich, competitive, or other. Reagent bottles of any shape and size are accommodated by the carefully designed and tested bottle holders.
Validation made easy
Many labs regularly validate the performance of the instruments which generate measurement data. For Crocodile, this task is supported by our 3Q Package: Installation Qualification, Operation Qualification and Performance Qualification steps are performed according to detailed instructions provided. The results are documented in checklists according to the specific features of the instrument.
Crocodile has been developed according to the most stringent regulations in the industry: DIN ISO 13485. Every step was accompanied by thorough riskanalysis. Selection of raw materials and the assembly process is performed
under strict observation of released procedures and processes. After final assembly, every individual unit has undergone several days of extensive testing and will be accompanied by a certificate of analysis stating compliance

The user friendly software adapts to any ELISA protocol easily. The five different functions can be aligned in any sequence, one or several times each (for example one to four dispensing steps or multiple washing steps). Setting of each step is flexible and intuitive. Once you have chosen an assay protocol, the screen will show a graphic of the entire assay schedule, as it will be performed by Crocodile.
MAP assay processors provide reliable start-to-finish automation of many liquid handling processes in 96 well and 384 well formats. The processors serve as the ideal tool for the processing of key applications in clinical diagnostics, genomics, proteomics, high throughput screening and bulk reagent distribution. These applications include, but are not limited to the following: • ELISA assays • Cell-based assays • Drug screening assays • Neonatal screening assays • Microbead-based assays • Microneutralization assays • PCR-based assays • Organic solvent dispensing • Plate coatingLink to further Information
Sirius L - A flexible Single Tube Luminometer of Highest Sensitivity. Innovative technology with unique features
The new developed Sirius L Tube Luminometer allows high quality luminescence measurements with state-of-the-art technique. Its sensitivity of better than 1 amol ATP per tube makes this research luminometer a perfect choice for all types of flash and glow luminescence. Sirius L is a compact high performance luminometer with unique features:
It's your plan to work on a wide range of luminescent applications?
Sirius L can be used for a multitude of luminescent applications.
Reporter gen assays including dual reporter gen assays
Mycoplasma contamination in cell cultures
Cell proliferation, cytotoxicity and biomass assays
cellular luminescence/ reactive oxygen species (ROS)
Environmental toxicity and mutagenicity assays
Do you need highest sensitivity? A maximized light collection through both, the proximity of the sample to the supersensitive detector and the use of optimized light reflectors, allows measurements of highest sensitivity.
You would like to measure a wide range of sample formats? The sample chamber of Sirius L accomodates a variety of vial types. Its sample versatility is unmached, there is virtually no limit!
Are high quality injectors a must-have and the injection into several sample formats an important feature? Sirius L is available with upto two syringe-type automatic reagent injectors for precise injection into 4 sample formats.
Do you prefer a totally PC controlled instrument? Sirius L is delivered with Windows 7 compatible PC software, including all established protocol types and controlling all instrument functions. For connection to PC the instruments USB port may be used.
Sirius L: State-of-the-art technique and attractive design for your luminescent Measurements.Link to further Information
The MPL1 Microplate Luminometer is an affordable but high quality instrument with basic functionality. It is suitable for all glow luminescence applications which require a very high dynamic range, but not extremely high sensitivity. It has proven its reliability in more than 2500 installations, worldwide.Link to further Information
The FB12 system is the ideal choice for stable glow luminescence of single samples from a variety of sample formats.
FB12 Luminometer combines a very small footprint with excellent sensitivity and outstanding ease of use. In stand-alone mode FB12 is ready for standard measurements. Samples are readily loaded on a pull out-drawer. Closing the sample drawer automatically initiates the measurement without pressing any key. An external printer may be connected optionally. The modular Windows® Luminometer PC-Software or the Pocket PC-Luminometer Software can further enhance performance by organizing the measurement dialog and data evaluation.
All luminescent glow type applications performed in single sample format, for example:
- Reporter gene assays, including dual-reporter assays
- Rapid detection of mycoplasma contamination in cell cultures: LONZA MycoAlert®
- ATP assays
- Cell proliferation, cytotoxicity and biomass assays
- Apoptosis assays
- Detection of mycoplasma contaminations in cell cultures
- Cellular luminescence / reactive oxygen species
- Environmental toxicity and mutagenicity assays
The FB12 Luminometer has been evaluated by the Research Department staff at Promega Corporation and has been certified for use with their Dual Luciferase "DLReady" (TM Promega Corp.) assay.Link to further Information
