1 PRINCIPLES OF COUPLED BIOLUMINESCENT REACTIONS In a bioluminescent reaction, a small molecule in an excited state is made to emit light in the presence of a protein that facilitates the reaction. Since the initial excitation requires energy input, the reaction depends (or can be made to depend) on the presence of either an energy-containing molecule, whose energy can be transduced to yield the excited state, or a molecule that triggers the release of chemical and/or conformational energy. A coupled bioluminescent (CB) reaction differs from this only in that the presence of the initiating molecule is itself the culmination of a separate event or series of events that is of interest to the investigator.

The software should enable selection of any rectangular subset of the plate wells for reading. Along with this feature, a very important capability of both software and instrument is the ability to predict, or at least test, the exact cycle time of both the individual reads and the entire experimental run. This stands in marked contrast, for example, to the case of ELISA readouts, in which time-critical changes are usually not occurring within seconds. Most CB assays are like true kinetics experiments, even if only a single-point readout is desired.

2 Injectors At least one injector is very nearly a necessity for successful development and performance of CB assays. The reason is that the results of most of these assays are strongly time dependent, and only maintaining a constant interval between the time of reaction initiation and the readout can assure the user of consistent data. A narrow exception may be made if the user is willing to perform time-linear fits of the data in all cases; if so, then it may be possible in some systems to load the plates manually, with a multichannel pipette, for example, and account for the uncertainty and/or inconsistency in reaction initiation times by measuring the rate of increase of the luminescent signal, rather than its absolute level.
