Luminescence detection typically offers greater sensitivity than absorbance or fluorescence detection. Our luminescence plate readers, also referred to as luminometers are ideal for measuring a wide range of assays including dual luciferase reporter gene, G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) via aequorin, bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET), and acridinium ester assays. Luminescence assays with long-lived signal (glow) can be detected by any luminescence reader, while flash assays with short-lived signal (flash) require a reader equipped with injectors.
With more than 30+ years of plate reader expertise and life science research, we’ve amassed an extensive collection of application-focused content in our Resource Hub. Our featured luminescence application notes include:
REACTIVE OXYGEN SPECIES (ROS)
Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) are chemically reactive molecules containing oxygen. In eukaryotes, these molecules are mainly created during aerobic respiration and can cause problems...
