Time-Resolved Fluorescence Techniques to FRET Based Immunoassay

Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) is a phenomenon of non-radiative transfer of the optical excitation from an excited electronic level of one molecule, called the donor, to a resonant electronic level of another molecule, called the acceptor. In this application note we show that one can increase the method sensitivity and reduce cost of the assay by applying a time-resolved fluorescence format to the FRET-based immunoassay.

Application Note: Kinetics of Persistent Luminescence Phosphors

Persistent luminescence, commonly called afterglow, is long-lasting visible emission over several hours after ultraviolet excitation. It has many applications; ranging from glow-in-the-dark signage to in-vivo imaging for disease diagnosis and treatment. In this application note, the persistent luminescence kinetics of a doped strontium aluminate phosphor are characterised using the FLS1000 Photoluminescence spectrometer
