    Luciferase Assays and Reporters

    Luciferases are widely-used reporters of biological activity, due to their bright signals and nearly non-existent background luminescence. GeneCopoeia’s Secrete-Pair™ system offers the unique advantage of a secreted dual-reporter luminescence system, which allows reporter assays in live cells. Combined with choices for traditional Firefly and Renilla luciferase assay kits to provide compatibility with multiple systems, as well as superior quality luciferase reporter clones for miRNA targets, promoters, and transcriptional response elements, GeneCopoeia’s luciferase products provide you with a wealth of tools for luminescence reporter analysis.
