Luminometer LUMIPOL

Luminometer has almost a zero background signal and a long time stability of zero line. It is one of the most sensitive equipment types of its kind in the world. It enables to work in a defined atmosphere of oxygen or nitrogen under isothermal conditions or with the heating or cooling programs. Optionally it may be connected with an oxygen absorption instrument.

Photon counting luminometer LUMIPOL measures the oxidation and thermo-oxidation stability of organic materials including polymers, food components, mineral oils and crude oil products. The instrument detects ultra-wear light emission accompanying the oxidation of organic materials. The more easily a material is oxidized, the more intense the light emitted.
