Title

Laser using -Based Indirect Fluorometric Detection and Quantification in Thin-Layer Chromatography

Abstract

A laser-based indirect fluorometric detection method for thin-layer chromatography is described. The new technique can be easily used for quantitative measurements because of its two-dimensional scanning capability. Since it is based on the indirect fluorescence mode, universal detection is possible without derivatization. Also, it takes only 35 s for acquiring a data array of 256 × 64 points with this technique to achieve a detection limit of 6 pg. This is 100 times lower than when the human eye is used as a detector for the same samples based on indirect fluorometry. The linearity in indirect fluorometric detection is found to be over 2 orders of magnitude.
