Description & Specifications

Specifications

Formulation Lyophilized salt in amber glass vial
Product Type D-Luciferin, Monopotassium Salt
Quantity 100mg

Thermo Scientific Pierce D-Luciferin is formulated at greater than 99% purity as both monosodium and monopotassium salts to provide convenience and high performance at a low cost in reporter assays involving firefly luciferase.

Luciferin is the substrate for bioluminescence reactions with firefly luciferase enzyme. Lyophilized potassium and sodium salts of firefly luciferin are stable and easily soluble, and both formulations are compatible with a wide variety of luciferase-based in vivo imaging and in vitro bioluminescent assays. (The decision to use one or the other form is a matter of researcher preference.) Applications include ATP assays, gene reporter assays, high-throughput sequencing and various contamination assays throughout the biotechnology field. For in vivo imaging, the injection of luciferin in model systems enables real-time, non-invasive monitoring of disease progression and/or drug efficacy through bioluminescence.

Highlights:

  • High purity, typically greater than 99.7%, as verified by HPLC and FTIR
  • Great performance with in vitro applications
  • Suitable for in vivo imaging
Applications:
  • Gene reporter assays
  • ATP assays
  • High throughput sequencing
  • Contamination assays
  • Bioluminescent in vivo imaging
  • Drug screening
  • Multiplexed assays to study off-target effects
  • Signal transduction pathway analysis
