Bioengineering Research Instrumentation
Microspectrophotometers are used to analyze bioengineering products by reflectance, absorbance and fluorescence
Microspectra of protein crystals
Bioengineering is used to produce technological products and organisms from the fields of biology and agricultural sciences. Products resulting from biotechnology research are used in three major areas: agriculture, biofuels and environmental applications. As such, bioengineering ranges from microarrays where thousands or millions of tests can be conducted on a single device simultaneously, biotechnology and bioremediation.
Due to the microscopic scale of the materials to be analyzed, microspectrophotometers are the perfect tool. Able to analyze micro-scale volumes by absorption, reflectance or even fluorescence, these tools are easy-to-use and very accurate. Their flexibility and accuracy make them very important for analyzing everything from genetically engineered organisms to sophisticated microarrays.
