fluorometry

 [floo͡-rom´ĕ-tre]
an analytical technique for identifying and characterizing minute amounts of a substance by excitation of the substance with a beam of ultraviolet light and detection and measurement of the characteristic wavelength of the fluorescent light emitted.

fluor·om·e·try

(flōr-om'ĕ-trē),
An analytic method for detecting fluorescent compounds using a beam of ultraviolet light that excites the compounds and causes them to emit visible light.
[fluoro- + G. metron, measure]

fluorometry

[floo͡rom′ətrē]
Etymology: L, fluere + Gk, metron, measure
measurement of fluorescence emitted by compounds when exposed to ultraviolet or other intense radiant energy. The atoms of certain substances produce fluorescence of a characteristic color and wavelength, allowing identification and quantification of several clinically significant compounds in biological specimens. Although fluorometry is a highly sensitive method of analysis, test interference by other compounds, especially drugs, may limit its usefulness in some situations. fluorometric, adj.
