The need for instrumentation in biological sciences began with the development of the telescope and the microscope by Galileo in the early 1600s. The invention of the compound microscope in 1610 gave birth to microscopic anatomy. In the 19th and early 20th century, microscopic anatomy opened up biological chemistry. The research in biology follows this by including more emphasis on process, quantification, problem solving, and open-ended laboratory activities. The measurement of physical, chemical and biological parameters using instruments in any living organisms is known as bioinstrumentation. Modern scientific researches stands on two pillars - ideas and technology. Ideas involve fresh insights, new concepts, and innovative approaches to scientific problems. Technology includes the development and use of complex scientific instruments and techniques. Ideas and technology are complementary and to a large extent interdependent. This volume deals with modern instruments and their applications in chemical biology, with special reference to: UV-VIS-FT-RI Spectroscopy, Fluorescence Spectroscopy, Flame Photometry, Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy Gas chromatography, High Pressure Liquid Chromatography, Thin Layer Chromatography Gas Chromatography, Mass Spectroscopy, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Bioreactor Gel Electrophoresis, PCR, Biosensor, Microscopy. Bioinstrumentation will be useful as a textbook and/or reference book for undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers, scientists, academics, and industrial personnel to help understand basic principles, theory, components and functions, and applications in physics, chemistry and biology.
