Lumigen HyPerBlu, a novel chemiluminescent substrate from Beckman Coulter, Inc., enables direct detection of hydrogen peroxide. Combining a broad dynamic range and bright, sustained chemiluminescence, the ready-to-use reagent offers unmatched convenience for high-throughput screening laboratories.
Reaction of the substrate with hydrogen peroxide rapidly generates sustained high-intensity luminescence for maximum sensitivity in solution assays. Direct detection increases accuracy and simplifies data analysis. When coupled with oxidases, the reagent also allows reliable, one-step, indirect detection of oxidases or their substrates.
HyPerBlu is provided as a single solution and does not require mixing. It is stable for one year when stored in an amber bottle at 2-8 degrees C.
“Detection of hydrogen peroxide is an important and widely used component of the drug discovery process,” noted Ed Pagani, vice president and general manager of molecular diagnostics, Beckman Coulter, Inc. “HyPerBlu saves time and delivers accurate results, qualities that should be highly desirable to researchers in high-throughput screening laboratories.”
