Microarray Analysis

Microarray analysis with a microspectrophotometer

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.
