Technology Fueled by Curiosity


In addition to firefly and Renilla luciferases, we have developed molecularly evolved luciferases and luciferins as luminescent reporters for our cell-based assays.

Scientists use these tools to investigate events happening in cells, such as whether a gene is turned on or if a specific molecule is present.

Genetic Identity
Our short tandem repeat (STR) detection technologies are used for applications such as human identification and cell and tissue characterization.

STR analysis is invaluable for making identifications in current and cold criminal cases, disasters, and other challenging identity cases.

Organic Chemistry
HaloTag® technology is a powerful tool for protein labeling and capture, based on formation of a bond between HaloTag® protein and synthetic ligands.

HaloTag® technology makes it easy for researchers to study how different proteins interact with each other inside cells.
