Abstract

An improved firefly luciferase reagent allowed reliable detection of as little as 80 fmo1/1 adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Contamination by ATP of the deionized water diluent limited the sensitivity of the assay in some laboratories. The reagent can be used to measure ATP from less than ten bacterial cells if care is taken to eliminate ATP from equipment and reagents.
