Abstract
A simple and inexpensive quantitative detection of protein in one droplet solution was achieved by a portable diode-laser- based-optical-fiber absorption spectrometry. A system consisted of a visible diode laser, a photodiode and a pair of optical fibers. The conventional Lowry method was used to measure the blue-colored protein solutions. In this study, one droplet of sample, which filled up the void between the end surfaces of two optical fibers, served as a sample cell. The volume of a droplet was 50 (mu) L, which is 1/100 of the cuvette of UV/VIS spectrometer cell used in Lowry method. Although the required sample volume decreased up to 100 times, the detection range was comparable to that of conventional Lowry method in the range of g/L - mg/L.
