Spectrofluorimetric antibiotic detection (Review)

Full Text:


The article discusses spectrofluorimetric detection of antibiotic drugs based on the intrinsic fluorescence of antibiotics, the formation of fluorescent products following the interaction of antibiotics with other compounds, and the application of the antibiotic-induced fluorescence quenching of specific dyes. Based on the literature data, the authors summarized and systematized information about parameters of antibiotic fluorescent analysis - the excitation and emission wavelengths, the reagent used and reaction conditions, the detection limit.
