LightSwitch™ System Companion / Assay Reagents

LightSwitch™ Luciferase Assay Kit

Luciferase Assay Kit

The novel substrate and optimized lysis buffer included in the Luciferase Assay Kit were formulated to provide high sensitivity over a broad dynamic range when used with our engineered RenSP Luciferase.

LightSwitch™ Dual Assay Kit

Dual Assay Kit

Intended for those experiments that utilize co-transfection for normalization, although our unique RenSP luciferase technology eliminates the need for co-transfection of a normalizing control in most cases.
