The Dual-Luciferase® Reporter (DLR™) Assay System from Promega Corp. provides a luminescent reporter assay to study gene transcription and regulation. The activities of two luciferases are measured sequentially from a single sample reporting the transcription of interest and a transfection control.
Both assays can be completed in about 4 seconds using a luminometer with reagent auto-injectors, such as the DLReady™ certified microplate readers in of the OPTIMA Series and Omega Series as well as the NOVOstar.
The Omega series of microplate readers from BMG LABTECH was granted DLReady™ certification based on the results published in the application note 165: Dual Luciferase Reporter (DLR™) Assay Certification on the Omega Series of Readers. These results were obtained with the POLARstar Omega microplate reader (Omega Series). The Omega Series is the third series of life science readers from BMG LABTECH that have been DLReady™ certified by Promega. Certification has been granted to the Galaxy and OPTIMA Series of plate readers, as well as the NOVOstar plate reader with micropipettor.
