We constructed a simple fluorescence detector for both direct and indirect CE methods using a blue light-emitted diode (470 nm) as excitation source, a bifurcated optical fiber as a waveguide, and a CCD camera as a detector. The connection of all the components is fairly easy even for nonexperts and the use of a CCD camera improves the applicability of this… CONTINUE READING
