Bionanotechnology applies the principles of nanotechnology to biotechnology: where the technological products and organisms are derived from biology and agricultural sciences.  Products resulting from bionanotechnology research are used in three major areas: agriculture, biologically derived products such as biofuels and environmental applications.  As such, bionanotechnology ranges from microarrays where thousands or millions of tests can be conducted on a single device simultaneously, bioengineering and bioremediation. 

Due to the microscopic volumes 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 importance for analyzing everything from genetically engineered bacteria to sophisticated microarrays.
