Question
Are the 12x55 mm assay tubes used in previous test kits compatible with the PhotonMaster™?
Summary
12x55 mm test tubes can be used with the PhotonMaster™
Answer
The PhotonMaster™ can accomodate any 12x55 mm test tube, such as the polypropylene test tubes supplied by LuminUltra and used also in the Kikkoman Lumitester. Polystyrene tubes can also be utilitized but are not recommended. Glass tubes are not recommended as they pose a breakage threat which can compromise the internal components of the PhotonMaster™.
