The first source on this expanding analytical science, this reference explores advances in the instrumentation, design, and application of techniques with electrogenerated chemiluminescence (ECL), examining the use and impact of ECL-based assays in clinical diagnostics, life science research, environmental testing, food and water evaluation, and the detection of biowarfare agents. Compiled by the pioneer of this highly innovative technology, this volume provides contributions from 16 leading authorities. They discuss the simulation of ECL behavior using commercial software, summarize key characteristics of organic ECL systems, and cover developments in metal chelate ECL.
