Dear all,

I am using luciferase system (stable cell line expressing a promoter-luc
construct) in a destructive way (cell lysis + luminometer). Is there a
way to use it like GFP, i.e. incubate with luciferine without killing
the cells and take a photo in a darkroom ? Would it be sensitive enough
to get the glowing cells photographed ?
Thanks for any help/input,
