I am using the scintillation counter for this type of assays. It works
fine. The problem is how to convert the readings in cpm to the lumino-
unit, or just get the square root of the reading and give it an arbitrary
One thing to make clear, I use the bacterial luciferase and do the assay
in vivo by supplying the c12-aldehyde.
Hope this helps.
