In energy consuming biological reactions the level of ATP is the essential indicator for enzyme activity or cell viability. The Biaffin ATP Determination Kits offer convenient bioluminescense assays for quantitative determination of small amounts of pre-existing ATP or ATP formed in enzymatic reactions. Catalysed by firefly luciferase the substrate D-luciferin is oxidized in an ATP-dependent process generating chemiluminescence at 560 nm (pH 7.8):
The timestable assay is optimized for high throughput screening with nearly constant luminescence signals over a period of up to four hours. The sensitive assay can detect nanomolar to micromolar concentrations of ATP.
The final reaction mix can easily be prepared and stored light protected in appropriate aliquots at –20oC. The standard reaction for both assays can be performed by adding an equal volume of the final assay mix to the ATP solution (usually 10 to 50 µl) in a 96 or 384 well plate optimised for luminescent reading. The luminescent signal can be measured preferably in a luminometer after 10 minutes at room temperature. As an alternative to a luminometer a scintillation counter can be used to measure luciferase activity. Unknown ATP concentrations can be exactly and reproducible determined using a standard ATP concentration curve generated under comparable experimental conditions (temperature, incubation times, assay volume, luminometer adjustments, etc.)

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
