Luciferase assays are useful tools for studying a wide range of biological questions. They can be performed easily by adding a reagent that provides components necessary to generate a luminescent signal directly to cells or a cell lysate. However, once this reagent has been added, how long you wait to measure the signal becomes a […]
In the late 1800s, Victorian England was mesmerized and horrified by a series of brutal killings in the crowded and impoverished Whitechapel district.

Ask any grade school teacher. Kids do science naturally. They are not afraid of questions. They are not afraid of nature. They are not afraid of […]
How to use Cell Viability and Cytotoxicity Assays Together to Get Real-Time Answers about Cell Death
If you have ever wondered about the differences between the various cell viability and cytotoxicity assays available, why you would choose one over another or how they can be used together, tune in to the webinar “A Real-Time Cytotoxicity Assay That Delivers More Relevant Data” (Tuesday, Sept 10). In this webinar, Promega Scientist Drew Niles […]
As we start a new year in our labs, we thought this cartoon reminding us of some lab etiquette might be useful. Enjoy!
