Quick Answer: What Is Chemiluminescence Assay?

Chemiluminescence (CL) is defined as the emission of electromagnetic radiation caused by a chemical reaction to produce light.

Chemiluminescence immunoassay (CLIA) is an assay that combine chemiluminescence technique with immunochemical reactions.

What is chemiluminescent assay used for?

Chemiluminescent immunoassay is a variation of the standard enzyme immunoassay (EIA), which is a biochemical technique used in immunology. They can also be used as diagnosis tools in medicine, as well as being in used in several other different industries for various applications.

What do you mean by chemiluminescence?

Chemiluminescence (also chemoluminescence) is the emission of light (luminescence), as the result of a chemical reaction.

What is CLIA method?

Chemiluminescence immunoassay (CLIA) is a widely used detection method which combines the highly-sensitive chemiluminescence assay with highly-specific immune response and affinity of antibodies. To discover how your research can benefit from Elabscience® CLIA Kits today.

What is the principle of chemiluminescence?

Chemiluminescence is the generation of electromagnetic radiation as light by the release of energy from a chemical reaction. While the light can, in principle, be emitted in the ultraviolet, visible or infrared region, those emitting visible light are the most common.
