Microspectrophotometers are used to analyze microarrays by reflectance, absorbance and fluorescence
UV-visible-NIR microscopy and microspectroscopy for analysis of any microarray.
Microarray devices are a collection of microscopic test sites arranged in arrays. This allows for many tests to be performed at the same time with a single device. Microarrays can be designed to replicate a series of full-scale chemical and biological reactions as microfluidic devices. As such, a single device is used perform many chemical reactions but on a microscopic scale. Therefore analytical techniques are required that can measure whether reactions have reached a successful conclusion but of micro-scale volumes.. Able to analyze numerous micro-scale volumes by absorption, reflectance or even fluorescence, microspectrometers are easy-to-use and very accurate.
