Bioinstrumentation is a field in biochemistry that involves the use of instruments and techniques for measuring and analyzing biological processes and substances. This can include the use of sensors, spectrometers, microscopes, and other equipment to measure and analyze molecules, cells, tissues, and whole organisms.

Instrumentation Notes




One important application of bioinstrumentation is in the analysis of biomolecules such as proteins, nucleic acids (DNA and RNA), and small molecules. Techniques used in this area include spectroscopy (e.g. infrared, ultraviolet-visible, and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy), chromatography (e.g. liquid chromatography and gas chromatography), and mass spectrometry. These techniques can be used to determine the structure, function, and interactions of biomolecules, as well as to identify and quantify them.
