The behavior of molecular tracers of the high-density star-forming ISM provides a diagnostics tool for luminous FIR galaxies. All molecules react differently to the physical and chemical environment and their collective behavior is indicative of the excitation of the ISM and its evolutionary state. This paper describes efforts to diagnose the nuclear medium through multiple-molecule studies.
