Microspectrophotometers are used to analyze biomaterials by imaging and spectroscopy.

Nanotechnology is the control of matter on the atomic or molecular scale.  It has many different applications including research of biomaterials.  Biomaterials are naturally occuring materials or those derived from biological processes. They have unique properties arising from features that occur on the micro or nano-scale.  Examples include silicates in algae and proteins. 

Due to the microscopic scales of the materials to be analyzed, microspectrophotometers are the perfect tool.  Able to analyze micro-scale samples 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 the optical effects of butterfly wings to protein crystals.
