Fluorescein is a kind of quite stable organic sample. In the experiment, an ultraviolet visible light spectrophotometer was used to examine and test the change of the fluoresce in sample before and after the action of the emitted qi. And a long-time tracking observation was carried out to see the characteristic of the sample's stability.
The experimental sample was the analytical alcohol. The original solution used was an aqueous solution of 0.1 N, NaoH with a concentration of 10 mg/ml. Four hours before the experiment, the sample solution was examined and tested three times. The spectrum peaks of the ultraviolet absorption were overlapped, which proved that the background solution was stable and the test equipment was also reliable. Six test tubes were filled with the background solution--three of the tubes were put in another building which Was 100 m away from the test equipment to receive the information of qigong, while the other three tubes were used as contrast samples.
Experimental Method: The qigong master acted on the experimental sample 2000 km away at an appointed time but he did not know the test method and site, Which freed from the influence of the original observation and test. The experimental sample was acted by the emitted qi five times in all, and each lasted for 10 minutes. Between two experiments, the laboratory technician entered the sample room and put the sample which was in the thermos on the test equipment to be examined and tested, and then put it back to let it keep on receiving the information of qigong. After that, we made a 360 hour trace observation on both the experimental sample and the contrast sample.

Before the experiment, the background solution had been tested three times and each time the absorption intensity of the peak value was 0.75.
Before the experiment, the absorption intensity of the background solution was repeatedly tested three times, and each time the absorption intensity was 0.62 at 239 nm wavelength.
