New Product: Luciferin ethyl ester

Avidin has optimized the synthesis of  Luciferin ethyl ester, a membrane permeable analog of the primary substrate for the firefly luciferase. This reagent produces 30% higher light intensity than the parent compound. It is especially suited for sensitive detection of luciferase expressing cells in tissues and in vivo animal studies.

Our solubilization buffer, provided to each ordered reagent, enables this analog entering into the tissues and generating very high intensitiy signals of cloned luciferase activity in whole animal studies.
