Researchers at Purdue University have developed a protein-based, genetically-encoded bioluminescent sensor that can report changes in intracellular ATP in live cells. This new sensor could be very useful for research purposes in cancer biology to measure cell health and chemotherapeutic drug efficacy.

Advantages:
-Measurement is independent of bioluminescence decay
-Precisely quantifies cell health and metabolism

Potential Applications:
-High throughput drug discovery
-Life animal imaging
