Life Science Instrument Applications
Instruments for life science research are more sophisticated than most lab equipment due to the use of integrated computers which enable researchers to quickly and accurately gain many results. They provide automation for certain time-consuming processes while also using high-tech equipment to deliver exact readings
Equipment and spare parts provide the necessary components for experiments such as electrophoresis and spectrophotometry. These components are also sold separately due to their disposable nature and frequent use.
Electrophoresis separates protein, DNA, and RNA according to size and molecular weight. The process requires many different components for efficient running, although all parts are sold in a kit or set, many elements require replacing separately and are marketed as such. Parts include electrophoresis tanks or cells, gel combs and gel casting trays.
Spectrophotometry is often used to measure concentration, enzyme reactions, and ligand binding. Its equipment centers on its necessary instruments; spectrophotometers, colorimeters, and photometers. The surrounding supplies include cuvettes, spectrophotometer cells, cuvette stirring rods as well as cuvette washers and cleaners.
