Fluorimetry involves the estimation of drug solution at two wavelengths, excitation and emission in fluorescence; an emission spectrum is acquired by scanning the emission monochromator at determined emission wavelengths ([[lambda].sub.em]), at a particular excitation wavelength ([[lambda].sub.ex]).
Compared with other analytical techniques like fluorimetry, resonance light scattering methods, spectro-photometry etc, and the main attractions of CL systems for analytical applications is their admirable sensitivity over a wide linear dynamic range, low detection limits and requiring no external excitation source so, the background signal is very low.
RNA samples were evaluated for purity by spectrophotometry using a Nanodrop ND1000 (Thermo Scientific), and the concentration was measured by fluorimetry using a Qubit 2.0 Fluorometer (Invitrogen Corp.).

Up till now various analytical techniques including magnetic resonance spectroscopy [7-9], electrochemical sensor [10, 11], spectro- fluorimetry [12], spectrophotometry [13], radio receptor assay [14], capillary electrophoresis (CE) [15-17], liquid chromatography (LC) [18-22] and gas chromatography (GC), thin layer chromatography [23-28] have been applied for the determination of the GABA, Put and Cad from biological fluids [5, 29-37].
Biophysical approaches such as differential scanning fluorimetry (DSF), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC), and surface plasmon resonance (SPR) also demonstrate binding of CA inhibitors to different isoforms.
Fluorimetry. Fluorimetry is a very sensitive spectroscopic technique that consists in the quantitative measurement of fluorescent signals, usually produced by aromatic molecules, for the detection and characterization of organic and inorganic compounds thanks to the application of a fluorescent laser to a sample (Figure 3) [28].

These include colorimetry [10, 11], fluorimetry [12], voltammetry [13, 14], liquid chromatography based on different detectors [15-18], and stop flow injection chemiluminescence [19].
Several analytical methods such as spectrophotometry [4, 5], fluorimetry [6], ultra-performance liquid chromatographic [7], HPLC [8], high-performance thin-layer chromatography [9], high-performance capillary electrophoresis [10], and capillary electrophoresis [11] have been reported for the determination of ciprofloxacin while spectrophotometry [12, 13] and HPLC [14, 15] are for the determination of doxycycline hyclate alone or in combination with other medicines.
