The interaction of the terbium–difloxacin complex (Tb–DFX) with DNA has been examined by using UV–vis absorption and luminescence spectroscopy. The Tb–DFX complex shows an up to 85-fold enhancement of luminescence intensity upon titration with DNA. The long decay times allow additional detection schemes like time-resolved measurements in microplate readers to enhance sensitivity by off-gating short-lived background luminescence. Optimal conditions are found at equimolar concentrations of Tb3+ and DFX (0.1 or 1 μM) at pH 7.4. Under these conditions, the luminescence intensity is linearly dependent on the concentration of ds-DNAs and ss-DNA between 1–1500 ng mL−1 and 4.5–270 ng mL−1, respectively. The detection limit is 0.5 ng mL−1 for ds-DNAs and 2 ng mL−1 for ss-DNA. The mechanism for the luminescence enhancement was also studied.
