– We Measure Life

Entirely focused on analytical applications of the firefly luciferase reaction
Our technology
The energy currency in all living cells is known as ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Using ATP technology our customers are able to rapidly measure the amount of cells from a single bacterial cell and upwards. Among our unique products are: 1) The specific measurement of bacteria on surfaces after degrading non-bacterial ATP. 2) The certified liquid-stable ATP standard for calibration of each individual test allowing results to be expressed in moles of ATP rather than relative light units thereby eliminating analytical interference from the sample matrix or from temperature variations. 3) D-Luciferin showing the highest activity among preparations from 8 manufacturers. This D-luciferin can be used e.g. for reagent manufacturing or in vivo imaging.
