Luciferin derivatives as luminogenic substrates provide the
basis for a new paradigm in enzyme assay design that brings the advantages of
bioluminescence—superior sensitivity, resistance to interference, and ease of
use—to researchers studying proteases or metabolic enzymes.
Here we highlight our wide selection of bioluminescent enzyme substrates for proteases, metabolic enzymes and β-galactosidase.
