Since the initial signal levels may be artificially high due to residual peroxides from synthesis, the chemiluminescence increase from 12 to 32 weeks might best reflect oxidative degradation due to the exterior exposure.
In addition, a heated FID is used for hydrocarbon measurement and a chemiluminescence analyzer is used for N[O.sub.x] measurement.
The MLI of resting cells, obtained at the basal state using luminol as a chemiluminescence reagent, was significantly lower in patients from group Inf than in those from group N-Inf (p [less than] 0.05).
Evidence of second-stage ignition, which will also be used to characterize combustion recession, was found by detecting OH* and CO2* (if any) chemiluminescence. To collect light from the relaxation of these excited-state species back to ground, a narrow band-pass interference filter centered at 310 nm is placed in front of an f/1.8, f = 45 mm UV-VIS lens and coupled to a HiCatt 25 image intensifier and Photron SA-1 CMOS camera.
The chemiluminescence probes have proven to be about 600 times more sensitive than conventional fluorescence probes.
The method is based on chemiluminescence, the emission of light resulting from a chemical process.

To demonstrate the versatility of the technique at its current stage, we took the setup to the Gas- und Warme-Institute (GWI) in Essen to reconstruct the chemiluminescence field of flames from a high-power industrial burner that was made optically accessible.
For instance, LIAISON XL, manufactured by DiaSorin, is a fully automated chemiluminescence analyser that facilitates complete sample processing.
The natural flame luminosity mentioned in the present study was composed of chemiluminescence and soot radiation.
Utilizing sophisticated chemiluminescence technology, it provides the capability to produce complex immunoassay results in 12 minutes or less with a push of a button.
The objective of this study was to compare the perfor-mance of Chemiluminescence Immunoassay (CLIA) and Immunochromatographic test (ICT) that are available for this purpose.
