Optical Building Blocks (OBB) Pioneers Milestone In Luminescence Spectrometry for Time- Resolved LRET Assays And General Luminescence With The Release Of EasyLife L

(Birmingham, NJ) – August 28, 2009

Optical Building Blocks Corporation (OBB) today announced the addition of EasyLife L to its series tabletop luminescence products.

EasyLife L was developed after years of input from users in the field who had specific functionality needs.

Due to its unique ‘single-shot’ detection technique, the EasyLife L is lightening fast. It can measure up to 500 complete decays in a second. The decays are instantly analyzed in real time enabling the user to follow reaction kinetics by plotting the lanthanide lifetime rather than the intensity as a function of time. This is the basis for a new, unique feature that only EasyLife L can offer: the Timebased Lifetime Scan. This makes the experiment immune to artifacts that usually affect intensity, such as light scattering, concentration fluctuations, precipitation etc. The lifetime-based technique is ideal for sensing applications, where binding of a substrate changes the lanthanide lifetime.

Optical Building Blocks Corporation (OBB) is built on 34 years of pioneering industry experience in Electro-optical instrumentation.

OBB designs, manufactures and markets proprietary light sources, monochromators, detectors, light based components for microscopes and bench top fluorescence systems. OBB products can be found at work in medical, healthcare, industrial process, quality control and environmental science laboratories and research facilities around the world. With production facilities in the United States and Canada, sales and service centers in North America and distributors worldwide, OBB is a recognized leader in light based components and systems.
