New Developments In The Bioluminescence Assay

The industrial development, the use of pesticides in
agriculture and the urbanization threaten the natural water
resources. Legislation was introduced for monitoring and
preventing the release of toxic substances to protect water
quality. The traditional approach to toxicant monitoring in
water involves standard analytic procedures. In general
these techniques are selective and very sensitive. One is
able to detect very low concentrations of a single chemical.
However, these benefits have their drawback. Water may
contain thousands of chemicals. Because of the selectivity
only a limited number of compounds can be evaluated
adequately. A broad based chemical analysis is expensive
or sometimes impossible. Furthermore, most of the methods
are laborious and time-consuming and cannot assess
toxicity.
