Evaluation of an improved fiberoptics luminescence skin monitor with background correction

, : Evaluation of an improved fiberoptics luminescence skin monitor with background correction. American Industrial Hygiene Association Journal 48(6): 594-598

In this work, an improved version of a fiberoptics luminescence monitor, the prototype luminoscope II, is evaluated for in situ quantitative measurements. The instrument was developed to detect traces of luminescing organic contaminants on skin. An electronic background-nulling system was designed and incorporated into the instrument to compensate for various skin background emissions. A dose-response curve for a coal liquid spotted on mouse skin was established. The results illustrated the usefulness of the instrument for in vivo detection of organic materials on laboratory mouse skin.
