Basic Principle & performance
Basic Principle
1) Purpose
Chemiluminescence Immunoassay System is a kind of medical test equipment used for human
immunoassay by testing human body fluid. Chemiluminescence Immunoassay (CLIA) is high
sensitive test technology, applying for quantitative analysis of minim material in human body, such
as hypothyroid hormone, gonad hormone.
2: Basic Principle
2.1Reagents Characteristic
Chemiluminescence is light emission induced by chemical reactions under normal temperatures.
Chemiluminescence is a multi-step course. The principle is as follows: product molecules or
intermediate molecules are activated to electric excited state by the energy produced in chemical
reactions. When they decline to the ground state, energy is released in the form of photons (viz.
chemiluminescence). The chemiluminescence system includes two types: One creates
chemiluminescence signal by enzyme; and the other adopts non-enzyme chemicluminescent
labeling technique.
In the above mentioned first system, commonly used chemiluminescence reagents are
aminobenzene dihydrazide (mainly luminol and isoluminol ramification) and acridine esters. The
great success of chemiluminescence determination using isoluminol labeled biotin in 1976 led to
rapid development of chemiluminescence immunoassay. Besides, the detection sensitivity is
enhanced greatly and fleetly. The chemiluminescence system commonly used in the past is as
NH 2
CO 2 -
+ (425nm)
CO 2 -
NH 2
activated by oxidizers to amido phthalate ions in the excited state. It emits photons while declining to
the ground state.
The chemiluminescence technology wasn’t applied in the gene analysis and immunoassay
detection field due to its low sensitivity until people found in the 1980s two kinds of materials, namely,
6-hydroxybenzothiazole &its ramifications , and phenols with two p-substitutes (such as p-iodophenol
and p-phenylphenol). These two materials can increase the luminescence intensity by more than a
thousand times. Besides, they could also prevent background illuminescence caused by single
reaction between oxidizers and luminescent reagents while prolonging the luminescence time by a
few hours. Generally, the system requires using ALP and HRP. The additional substrate illuminates
under the effect of enzyme. The luminous flux is determined by substrate. The chemical reaction is as
Light Emission Mechanism of CSPD
In the nonenzyme chemiluminescence labeling system, signal could be emitted in very short time
because its background signal is small. Generally, chemiluminescence is able to accelerate the
detection by ten times or even more, or to improve the sensitivity by ten times or above.
2.2Reaction Process
enzyme-labeled-plate which solid phase is coated with antibody. Sample molecules and enzyme
labeled substance will compete to combine with the antibodies on the solid phase. Separate and
wash the unbound components, and add chromogenic substrate. Then, the enzyme induces the
substrate to luminesce. At the time, put the enzyme-labeled-plate into the equipment and photon
counting system will read the luminescence value of each well. The sample molecule concentration is
then calculated by the mathematics model constructed in the light of standard sample. In the end, the
data report form, which will assist clinic diagnoses, is printed.

Applications & Principles
Technical Theory:
Enzyme-labeled Chemiluminescence Immunoassay Technology
Test Procedure:
Competitive ELISA: Solid Phase Chemiluminescence Enzyme Immunoassay, taking
micro plate as its carries, follows the competitive methodology. Antigen is coated in advance onto the
wells of the micro plate. After the test sample is added, free antigen from the test sample and the
HRP-labeled antigen compete for the immobilized antibody-binding sites on the wells. Thus, the
immune compounds consisting of antibody-antigen and antibody-HRP- labeled antigen come into
being on the surface of the micro plate. After unbound antigen and HRP-antigen are washed off by
solution, pre-set chromogenic substrate solution is added to determine the relative luminescence
intensity. The more the free antigen in the sample, the less the amount of conjugated HRP-antigen.
According to the known concentration of the calibration materials and its related luminescence
intensity, dosage-reaction curve is drawn and regression line is available after the fitting process.
Then, the concentration of antigen present in the unknown sample can be calculated.
2:Sandwich ELISA Solid Phase Chemiluminescence Enzyme Immunoassay, taking micro plate
as its carries, follows the sandwich methodology. The methodology uses 2 specific antibodies which
recognize discrete sites on the unknown molecule. The first antibody is precoated onto the wells of the
micro plate. It captures antigen in the blood serum after being added into the sample. The other
antibody, connected with HRP, is allowed to bind to the antigen. Thus, the immune compounds of
antibody -antigen- labeled antibody come into being on the surface of the micro plate. After unbound
antigen and HRP-antigen-antibody are removed with a wash by solution, chromogenic substrate
solution is added to determine the relative luminescence intensity. According to the relative
luminescence intensity of the known antigen concentration of the calibration materials, standard curve
is drawn and regression line is available via dual-logarithm mathematical model. Then, the
concentration of antigen present in the unknown sample can be calculated.

confirmation, click ‘OK’ to save it.
If any one of the certain patient samples is edited, all the other samples will change consequently. This
is especially useful for a patient with many test items.
After test, if obvious deviation in photon number or calculated concentration is found, retest is
recommended; for those veterans, they could correct the photon number by themselves. Click ‘OK’ to
finish the photon number modification, and begin to retest sample concentration. Since the sample
concentration is acquired through the photon analysis, the method is only available for sample photon
number modification, and it cannot be used for modifying the sample concentration.
As for standard sample information input, just select the bottle number of the standard sample and its
corresponding concentration will be called up automatically by system given that the reagent bar code
information has been correctly input into the system.

13.1 Test item management
Test item management includes three aspects::Item information setting and analytical method
choosing::Reagent bar code input::Registration of opened reagent access.
:Item information setting and analytical method choosing:See picture 13:
Picture 13
Clicking the item that needs to be set in the left part of
the window, the item basic information will be shown in the right part of the window. Item setting includes:
concentration of standard bottle, unit, standard point amount, analytical method, the range of reference
value and use frequency choosing. The program needs to be restarted after setting.
Use frequency choosing: According to item use frequency, items with high use frequency usually be
set as default value and showed in the layout area
for users’ convenience.
The range of reference value setting should according to the sequence of [sex ,age low limit ,age high
limit, description, refrence low
limit,refrence high limit]
: Reagent bar code input:See picture14:
- 29 -
Picture 14
While inputting data, put cursor in the bar code input area. Scan three rows of bar codes (Inputting bar
code information by hand is also acceptable). The program will analyze automatically (if not, please click
‘Analyze’ button). After confirming, click ‘Input’. Notice: Before being used, every new reagent box has to be
scanned to update the databank.
The reagent bar code contains standard curve. Therefore, the standard curve in the databank will be
updated automatically as long as the scanning is done. After updating standard curve, every box of reagent
just needs a two-point calibration, which facilitates operations and reduces the cost.
Before the access to reagent is opened, reagent parameter can only be inputted by scanning bar code.
: Registration of opened reagent access (See picture15 )
Picture 15
For those have received reagent access, register as follows:
Click ‘register’ button in the picture 14, and a window will show up (picture 15). The upper column of the
window shows the machine information code. User should send the machine information code to the
producer (through telephone, fax, instant message toll, email, etc), and also submit a application by fax.
After authorization, the authorized information code will be sent to the user. Put the received information
code into the column below. Click ‘ok’. At the time, another window (See picture 16) will pop up, indicating
the successful registration. Finally, restart the program and input reagent information by hand.
