Luciferase assays allow for the study of transcriptional gene expression, virus life cycles, and cell viability, making them significant tools for drug development in reporter gene, cytotoxicity, and cell proliferation applications, as well as general kinase activity monitoring. Our luminescence assays include reporter gene, ATP-monitoring, and kinase assays.
A luminescence assay is extremely useful as a detection platform for several reasons, including:
- Wide dynamic range
- Greater sensitivity than fluorescence technologies
- Lower interference than other detection options
- Cost effective detection
- Simple automation for high throughput applications
- Homogenous luciferase assay set-up eliminates wash and separation steps
Our luciferase luminescence assay options allow high sensitivity in a convenient microplate format.
