Homemade chemifluorescence

Dear listeners,

Our lab is considering a switch from enhanced chemiluminescence (ECL) to 
chemifluorescence (ECF), as we may soon have access to a Storm 860 
phosphorimager.  The folks at Molecular Dynamics suggest ECF over ECL 
for HRP detection with the Storm 860. 

What is troubling is that our lab would have to abandon its cheap and 
effective homemade ECL protocol consisting of H2O2 + (luminol + coumaric 

Does anybody know of a cheap and effective homemade ECF protocol?

Thanks in advance,
Arne Christensen
