AbstractIn the last several years, nitric oxide (NO) has been shown to be an extremely important biologicalongoing research by many investigators is exploring both its function and possible clinical applicatobjective of this project is to investigate and develop a new and novel chemiluminescence based nitrapparatus. The detector will be sensitive, easy to use and operate in real time on fluid and gas samsamples containing nitric oxide will not be degraded or decomposed by the detection process. Some spoptimize the device chemistry and structure and to develop both macro and miniature versions so thatmeasurements ranging from the measurement of nitric oxide in respiratory tidal volumes to intravascumeasurement can be performed.
