Lumitester C-110

Lumitester C-110 is a small, lightweight and precision instrument for ATP measurement. The Lumitester C-110 is the high sensitivity luminometer used with all of the Kikkoman CheckLite tests. The CheckLite series is a rapid microbiology test kit that measures microorganisms and cells.


  • Small & Lightweight
    Portable body, weighs about 700g. You can carry it easily and make measurement by rechargeable batteries.
  • High Sensitivity & Wide Dynamic Range
    With the special reagents "CheckLite" series, you can measure 1.0 x 10-17 ~ 3.0 ×10-11 mol ATP.
  • Simple & Speedy Operation
    Insert a test tube containing mixture of sample and reagent, and just push the start button. The result will be displayed after only 10 seconds*1, and anyone can get measurement results on the spot with ease. ATP concentration and cell count can also be obtained after calibration.
    *1 In case of standard mode
  • Advanced measurement
    An advanced mode is pre-installed. This mode enables measurement time and delay time settings, and consecutive measurement, which are suitable for highly professional biochemical research use.
  • Convenient data processing performance
    Measurement data are recorded in the C-110, and can be transferred the data to PC for print out and for data processing.
