Your Guide to Luciferase-based Detection Kits

Which Luciferase kit is the right one for you?

Our specialist, Dimitri Szymczak PhD, has put together the overview below of the various kits available.
These offer very good yields, and are highly competitively priced.

Compare them to similar reagents available elsewhere, and try them yourself!

Any questions?

Ask Dimitri He will be pleased to advise you on the best kit for your research project.

  • High Sensitivity Single Firefly Luciferase

This is the gold standard firefly luciferase kit, with a sensitivity of 1 000 000 RLU/s.

  • Enhanced Stability Dual Firefly and Renilla Luciferases

The enhanced stability version provides normalized data with a sensitivity of 40 000 RLU/s.

Luciferase activity remains greater than 80% for 30 minutes after addition of the enzymatic substrates.

  • High Sensitivity Dual Firefly and Renilla Luciferases

Sensitivity is 1 000 000 RLU/s.

  • High-Throughput Dual Firefly and Renilla Luciferases

This is a convenient one-step detect kit for high-throughput assays and it is still a dual one for high reproducibility. Sensitivity is 100 000 RLU/s.

  • Secreted and Dual Detection kit

Kit based on Gaussian luficferases and secreted alkaline phosphatase. No cell lysis anymore.
GLuc is 1,000 times more sensitive than firefly and Renilla luciferases.
