A sensitive technique which uses fluorescein , a fluorescent molecule, to measure the antigen or antibody concentration in a solution .

3. Fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP)
A lab technique used to find out how fast a cell can regenerate parts which have been destroyed by bleaching with a microscopic light beam. The technique determines this by measuring fluorescent molecules located in the area.

4. Fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS)
