Chemiluminescent (CL) detection techniques for DNA assays and immunoassays have become very popular in recent years. This review discusses recent advances in those CL assays that have occurred over the last few years. In the monoplex assay section, different classes of CL labels including nanoparticle, DNAzyme, acridinium ester, enzyme and luminol-based CL assays are reviewed concerning the detection of DNAs and proteins. In the multiplex assay section, both spatial resolution and substrate zone-resolved techniques are discussed.
