Paper Abstract

Fluorescent proteins are often used as reporters of protein concentration in biology and biomedicine applications. They can be detected using a fluorimeter equipped with fiber optics for ease of access. However, small changes in the path length due to change in the position, or immersion depth of the optical fiber results in large changes in readings. To alleviate the situation, the fiber is equipped with a fixed-length-extension that provides constant path length. The operation of the fiber equipped fluorimeter is theoretically modelled and practically verified in this paper.
