Microplate luminometers for flash-type luciferase assays

By Douglas Hayworth

A new product article describes features of selected Thermo Scientific microplate luminometers that make them ideal for high-throughput reporter-gene studies using Thermo Scientific Pierce Luciferase Assays.

The application note introduces different luciferase reporter assay types (flash-type assays based on Gaussia, Cypridina, Renilla or firefly luciferases) and the requirements they place on the luminometer. Microplate readers that are equipped with reagent dispensers and appropriate optical filters provide optimal performance using low assay volumes with normal and shallow well 384-well plates.
