In biological studies, the luminescence from fluorescent proteins or luminescent enzymes is widely used for monitoring a change of environment at a cell. Biomolecules used for this probing, such as Green Fluorescence Protein(GFP) or luciferase molecules can respond to the existence of specific molecules or ions and subsequently emit a photon. The detection of a specific molecule can then be confirmed by detecting the emitted photons efficiently with a photon detector. A highly efficient… CONTINUE READING
