fluorometer

 [floo͡-rom´ĕ-ter]
the instrument used in fluorometry, consisting of an energy source (e.g., a mercury arc lamp or xenon lamp) to induce fluorescence, filters or monochromators for selection of the wavelength, and a detector.

fluor·om·e·ter

(flōr-om'ĕ-tĕr),
A device employing an ultraviolet source, monochromators for selection of wavelength, and a detector of visible light; used in fluorometry.

This will serve as the basis for our expansion into lab-on-chip devices, color sensors, spectrometers, fluorimeters, and white LED pulse and tissue oximeters.
Despite its pervasiveness in clinical laboratory testing and high sensitivity, fluorescence has not become popular because fluorimeters have always been too large, expensive, and fragile for non-laboratory use.
ultrasensitive photon counting fluorimeters which provide increased sensitivity over currently available instruments and automatable simultaneous multi-analyte testing.
