Description

Features and Benefits

Used for chemiluminescence analysis of, for example, metal cations, blood, and glucococorticoids.

• Very effective chemiluminiscent compound.
• Can detect sub-part per billion levels of metal ions with simple and inexpensive instrumentation.

Packaging

2.5, 5 g in glass bottle

25 g in poly bottle

Application

• As a chemiluminiscent substance. Used to measure opsonic and phagocytic function.
• As a biological sensor. Used to detect the polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNL) response in a patient with a myeloperoxidase (MPO) deficiency.
• Used as a forensic test for blood.

General description

Luminol is a very efficient and commonly used chemiluminiscent compound in condensed phase. When basic solutions of luminol containing oxygen are treated with an oxidizing agent, light is produced. Oxidising agents capable of initiating this particular reaction are Nitrogen dioxide, PAN, hydrogen peroxide, ozone and other atmospheric oxidants.
