The detection of light emitted as chemiluminescence (CL) allows monitoring the kinetics of an ongoing oxidation reaction.
We prepared 25 and 50 g/L BSA solutions in Hanks' balanced salt solution to determine free p-cresol and to measure the chemiluminescence production.
Luminometers are distinguished by their measurement of flash chemiluminescence, a rapid, short emission of light, or glow chemilumeniscence, a sustained emission of light triggered by an enzyme, or both.
The NO chemiluminescence system used in these experiments consisted of four main components: helium carrier gas (set at 35 psi), two in-parallel purge vessels with condensers connected by T-valves, a nitric oxide analyzer (NOA) with inlet valve and chemiluminescence reaction chamber (Sievers 270B, NO Chemiluminescence Analyzer, Sievers Instruments), and a vacuum pump (Edwards Pump) to draw the carrier gas into the reaction chamber.
