There is an increasing need for versatile yet sensitive labels, posed by the demands for low detection in bioanalysis. Bioluminescent proteins have many desirable characteristics, including the ability to be detected at extremely low concentrations; no background interference from autofluorescent compounds present in samples; and compatibility with many miniaturized platforms, such as lab-on-a-chip and lab-on-a-CD systems. Bioluminescent proteins have found a plethora of analytical applications… Expand
