Paper Abstract

This paper presents the development and applidation of immunofluorescence spectroscopy in fiberoptics-based chemical and biological sensors. Focus is on a fluoroimmuno-sensor (FIS), which combines the excellent specificity of the antigen-antibody reaction and the high sensitivity of laser excitation and the versatility of fiberoptics technology. The FIS can detect 40 attomoles (10-18 mole) of benzo(a)pyrene tetrol, a DNA-adduct product of the carcinogen benzo(a)pyrene.
