Syngene: Chemiluminescence vs. Chemifluorescence
23 September 2015

Traditionally, radioisotopic protocols have always been standard in the laboratory. But with costs and concerns associated with using and disposing of radioisotopes escalating, many researchers are turning to non-isotopic methods wherever possible. Consequently, new chemistries are being developed to substitute radio-isotopic methods. The most popular method currently is that of chemiluminescence although some scientists prefer chemifluorescence. This application note defines the two techniques and offers guidance on how to select the most suitable for your research.
