The presence of antioxidant issues such as redox potential imbalance in human body is a very important question for modern clinical diagnostics. Implementation of fluorescence analysis into optical diagnostics of such wide distributed in a human body antioxidant as ubiquinone is one of the steps for development of the device with a view to clinical diagnostics of redox potential. Recording of fluorescence was carried out with spectrometer using UV irradiation source with thin band (max at 287 and 330 nm) as a background radiation. Concentrations of ubiquinone from 0.25 to 2.5 mmol/l in explored samples were used for investigation. Recording data was processed using correlation analysis and differential analytical technique. The fourth derivative spectrum of fluorescence spectrum provided the basis for a multicomponent analysis of the solutions. As a technique in clinical diagnostics fluorescence analysis with processing method including differential spectrophotometry, it is step forward towards redox potential calculation and quality control in pharmacy for better health care.
