fluorometry


Also found in: Dictionary, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

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]

DCFH-DA Fluorometry. 2'7'-Dichlorofluorescein diacetate (DCFH-DA) was used to measure global ROS production as previously described [43].
NO imaging techniques primarily utilize magnetic resonance (MR), electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectrometry, and fluorometry. NO is a diatomic free radical that contains one unpaired electron derived from L-arginine via the catalytic action of NOS.

Therefore, calcein-AM only stains viable cells and provides both morphological and functional information of viable cells under microscopy and fluorometry. In this experiment, calcein staining was performed as described [23].

Using the image analysis software that we have developed (Tsechpenakis et al., 2007, 2008), we could essentially quantify the plankton field for every centimeter of our tow, and we could match these data centimeter by centimeter with the corresponding environmental data collected by the onboard sensors (pressure [depth], temperature, salinity, and fluorometry).
However, PAM fluorometry was developed for higher plants and not envisioned for studying motile organisms.
The photoluminescence (PL) was measured on a Hitachi F-7000 Fluorometry with a Xe lamp as the excitation light source at room temperature and the excitation wavelength of 310 nm.
