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.

fluorometer

(1) An instrument used to measure the intensity and wavelength distribution of fluorescent emissions after excitation by a certain spectrum of light.
(2) A now-retired device formerly used to measure the amount of ionising radiation emanating from an X-ray tube.
