A mixture is prepared by mixing carriers to which a substance specifically reacting on an object substance adheres with a sample containing the object substance. The mixture is irradiated by light having an intensity gradient to concentrate the carriers at and near the irradiated positions by the optical pressure of the light. The efficiency of an agglomeration reaction of the carriers is thereby increased. A qualitative or quantitative measurement of the object substance is performed by detecting a state of agglomeration of the carriers within the mixture.
