Magnifiers: All You Need to Know

I. Magnifiers: Introduction Magnifiers are defined as instruments that enlarge the size of images. Interestingly, the phenomenon of magnification was highly valued in the ancient world. In Ancient Egypt and Rome, for instance, people used crystals and gemstones to view small objects or images; the magnifying glass was also used to ignite paper. Note that the first magnifier used as

Catadioptric Telescopes: A Complete Guide

Catadioptric Telescopes: Introduction While both reflecting and refracting models continued improving over the years, advancements in lens technology outside the field of telescopy led to the development of the catadioptric telescope - a combination of refracting (lenses) and reflecting (mirrors) optics. To provide an example, in 1820, physicist Augustin-Jean Fresnel developed the prominent catadioptric lighthouse reflector, in 1859 scientist Leon

1H Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Chemical shifts

NMR spectroscopy (more information here) is an ideal technique for identifying the structure of molecules. In order to elucidate the structure of a molecule using NMR spectroscopy, we require the sample itself, a reference molecule, and a deuterated organic solvent.[1] This mixture is taken in a thin NMR tube and loaded in the NMR machine. Briefly, in the presence of

Laboratory Quality Assessment

Quality assessment Quality assessment (QA) is the evaluation of the results obtained in the lab using known standards and proficiency panels in order to validate quality control and quality assurance programs. Quality assessment can be internal, where the lab’s staff performs the verification tests, or external quality assessment (EQA), where an agency outside the lab is tasked with examining the

Fluorescence Spectrophotometry: Principles and Applications

Fluorescence spectrophotometry is a set of techniques that deals with the measurement of fluorescence emitted by substances when exposed to ultraviolet, visible, or other electromagnetic radiation. It has wide application in chemical and biological sciences as it can be used to analyze a biological system, by studying its interactions with fluorescent probe molecules (So and Dong, 2002, The International Pharmacopoeia,

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy

Two molecules may have the same number and type of atoms, but their properties would change depending on how they are arranged (i.e., the bonds linking them and their orientation). As an example, Ethanol and Dimethyl ether, both have one oxygen, two carbon, and six hydrogen atoms, but the structures and properties of both these compounds are different. Ethanol exists

Centrifugation for Researchers

Centrifugation is a useful way to separate particles using a centrifuge, and it is a method that has many applications in the life sciences, particularly in molecular biology. There are different types of centrifuges that can be used for various applications, including research into organelles and biological molecules. Theory of Centrifugation The theory behind centrifugation is that particles are put
