I'm writing an article for The Scientist (http://188.8.131.52) on
bioluminescence and chemiluminesce systems. The article will be a
general review of products and research uses. I'd like to get
responses from those of you who work with these systems. Please
respond to jkling at nasw.org (or call 360.714.1850).
Do you have a sense for which is the most popular reporter
enzyme/substrate system (ie, alkaline phosphatase, horseradish
peroxidase, et al)?
Are any of the systems more or less sensitive than the others? Is
there a difference in cost (assuming the same setup, is HRP more or
less expensive than AP, for instance)?
Are some enz/sub systems used with specific kinds of assays -- or is
it mostly a matter of personal preference?
What kind of trends have you seen in luminescence products/research
recently? Have one or a few systems become popular or faded away? Do
you see any particular system becoming a dominant player in the
Anything else you can think of that would be important for me to
