Lunatic

Get your quant on

Big Lunatic makes batch quantification of protein, DNA and RNA a no-brainer. All you need is 2 μL and 10 minutes to measure up to 96 samples. Run them straight-up, even at high concentrations, without ever diluting. Big Lunatic gets biologics and genomics UV/Vis quantification on the money every time. Just drop, load and read.

No B.S. workflow

Skip the sample prep, cleaning and worrying about cross-contamination or evaporation – your samples will sit tight for up to 2 hours. Our Big Lunatic plate runs 96 samples in 10 minutes. Each microfluidic circuit has two fixed pathlengths built-in to cover a wide dynamic range of 0.03-275 OD. All you do is load up your samples and get kick-ass results.

Max out your biologic

Big Lunatic is the only system out there that can measure biologics at high-throughput and high concentration. It’s got dynamic range that covers from 0.02 mg/mL to 200 mg/mL (mAb), so run any protein without ever having to dilute again. Stop the madness of running just one protein at a time — and cleaning up afterwards.

Ridiculously good data

Get spot-on precision within 1% and accuracy within 2%. Using two fixed pathlengths, Big Lunatic gets you jaw-dropping data at both low and high protein concentrations and nails the expected concentrations every time. With the smallest sample size, the highest throughput and crazy accurate results, Big Lunatic is hands down the best tool out there for protein quantification.

Accuracy you can show off

Big Lunatic has shocking accuracy and wants to prove it. Using the Fundamentals tryptophan standards, the accuracy, precision and linearity of the instrument can be proven at any time — at the protein-relevant 280 nm wavelength and OD range of 20-225. Be confident about every sample with data that leaves no room for doubt.

Downstream ready

Smash through the USP & Ph. Eur. UV/Vis requirements for absorbance accuracy, precision, linearity, wavelength accuracy, stray light and resolution with performance verification measurements of independently certified NIST standards. Big Lunatic is ready when you are to get validated and make the move into QC.

Put it on lockdown

GLP labs don’t sweat it. Big Lunatic’s software hooks labs up with 21 CFR Part 11 compliant features. We’re talking password protection, electronic signatures, full audit trail — the whole package.

Dig up your genomic’s dirt

DNA and RNA samples can be freaking messy. Lunatic analysis software lets you see annoying impurities that classic A260 measurements alone mistake as your DNA or RNA. Find out exactly how much RNA, turbidity, beads and other influencers are screwing up your nucleic acid quantification. Ditch the time-sucking, dye-based prep and know right away if your samples are good to go.

Set it and forget it

Big Lunatic talks to robots. Hook it up with any liquid handler system and run your measurements completely hands-off with our API setup and keep more of your precious sample for the rest of your workflow.

Going smaller

Little Lunatic is there for labs that have fewer samples and lower requirements. It uses a chip-based version of the Big Lunatic plate to get quick concentration measurements of up to 16 samples in 5 minutes. Researchers that just need a quick check of concentration can get what they need from this little guy.
