Paper Abstract

Everyone would like to calibrate their fluorometers with a stable transferable fluorescent object. Existing stable fluorophores generally do not match the geometrical, spectral or anisotropic properties of samples used in in-vitro diagnostics. This paper will discuss the ideal features of fluorescence calibrators and why no practical calibrators exist. Finally, we will suggest partial solutions to the problem.
