Sea Firefly (Cypridina hilgendorfii), 1 g

Item # 203431

Cypridina hilgendorfii. Collected from the sea near Japan, these desiccated organisms provide an example of a luciferin-luciferase system not requiring ATP for bioluminescence.

Make separate luciferin and luciferase preparations which, when mixed, will luminesce. Complete instructions included. This is a 1-g unit of desiccated sea fireflies.
