This study aims to reveal the effects of pressure during cold isostatic pressing (CIP) on the microstructure and optical properties of fluorescent HAp complexes. Although the microsturucture-dependent properties of fluorescent HAp complexes have been reported to improve the antibacterial properties of photocatalyst coating layers, the mechanism behind the changes in the fluorescence properties of highly compressed HAp complexes has not yet been unveiled. CIP was successfully used to fabricate fluorescent HAp - amino acid complexes, and their fluorescence intensities increased with increasing fabrication pressure. Peak wavelength of fluorescence emitted by the HAp - amino acid complexes exhibited yellow to red shift. Although the thickness of the amino acid layer was saturated in higher pressure cases, the concentration of amino acids increased proportionally with pressure, which suggests changes in the packing structures of the ligands in the HAp- amino acid complexes. Polarized Raman spectroscopy measurements clearly detected ligands normally arranged to the HAp layer under high pressure fabrication conditions, which can provide the tightly packed ligand structure in the HAp- amino acid complexes. These tightly packed ligand structure in the HAp- amino acid complexes could emit stronger fluorescence owing to the increased density of complexations. This newly found pressure dependency in the optical properties of HAp-amino acid complexes is beneficial for developing biocompatible fluorescence materials or enhancement agents for antibacterial coating layers.

Microscopy of specimens stained with fluorescent dye (usually fluorescein isothiocyanate) or of naturally fluorescent materials, which emit light when exposed to ultraviolet or blue light. Immunofluorescence microscopy utilizes antibodies that are labeled with fluorescent dye.
Tight coverings for the foot and leg that are worn to aid circulation in the legs and prevent the formation of EDEMA and DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS. PNEUMATIC COMPRESSION STOCKINGS serve a similar purpose especially for bedridden patients and following surgery.
Test for tissue antigen using either a direct method, by conjugation of antibody with fluorescent dye (FLUORESCENT ANTIBODY TECHNIQUE, DIRECT) or an indirect method, by formation of antigen-antibody complex which is then labeled with fluorescein-conjugated anti-immunoglobulin antibody (FLUORESCENT ANTIBODY TECHNIQUE, INDIRECT). The tissue is then examined by fluorescence microscopy.
