The aim was to investigate the factors influencing light emission from Photobacterium phosphoreum in the Microtox test to interpret bioassay results for urine. Four reference urines were assessed as reference materials for the bioassay. Nicotine and cotinine were investigated as urinary markers for tobacco exposure. The optimum luminescence conditions were… CONTINUE READING
