Although bioluminescence has been known for over 3000 years, and chemiluminescence for over a century, (Radziszewski, 1877), it is only recently that these phenomena have been adapted for routine, in-vitro diagnosis. This has partly been due to the lack of suitable measuring equipment, and partly to the lack of robust immunoassay systems.
