    Abstract

    Various components of a conventional fluorometer are discussed. Several approaches to optimization of some of these components are discussed by citing specific research examples. The four areas of research that are described include: stabilization of a xenon arc lamp, improvements in sample chemistry, increased detector selectivity, and development of data reduction strategies for complex data. Improvements in the fluorescence measurement process are cited with each example.
