Laboratory Equipment Care and Maintenance

The care and maintenance of laboratory equipment is an integral part of quality assurance in the lab. Well-maintained lab equipment ensures that data is consistent and reliable, which in turn impacts the productivity and integrity of the work produced. Furthermore, since laboratory equipment generally takes up a big cut of the budget, good maintenance contributes to cost-cutting measures, by lowering

Radiation: Friend or Foe? What Can We Learn From Radiobiology?

We are routinely exposed to radiation. Simply, radiation is the propagation of energy in the form of waves or particles through material in space (Mu et al., 2018). The world is full of background radiation to which we are constantly exposed. Everything we see and hear comes to us in the form of radiation. Radiation is mainly of two kinds:

Colorimetry- a comprehensive guide for your color science

Overview of Colorimetry Colorimetry, as the name suggests, means measurement of colors. In terms of chemical analysis, it is, more specifically, the measurement of the concentration of a particular compound (solute) in a colored solution (solvent). During scientific work, we often need to measure quantities of a particular compound in a mixture or the concentration of the solution. The trick

The Basics of Infrared Spectrophotometry

Spectroscopy refers to the interaction between electromagnetic (EM) radiation and matter as a function of its frequency or wavelength. From this, a number of quantitative and qualitative measurements defining aspects like sample concentrations, structure, chemical compositions etc, can be obtained depending on the spectroscopic technique and spectrum of EM radiation used. When EM radiation interacts with matter, its frequency can

Mastering the Microtome

Description of Microtome Generally, microtomes are involved in the process of preparing samples of biological material to be examined under a microscope. Specifically, they slice material into extremely thin pieces so they can fit in a microscope slide and be studied by researchers. It holds the material in place while a very sharp glass or diamond-edged knife slices it into

Understanding and Using Acids

An acid is a chemical, which when added to water, increases the amount or concentration of hydrogen ions, or H+, making it acidic. A hydrogen ion (H+) is just a hydrogen atom without its electron. And, as a hydrogen atom is just one electron and one proton, the term hydrogen ion (H+) can be used interchangeably with proton. How does

Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence Microscopy

As an Amazon Associate Conductscience Inc earns revenue from qualifying purchases Introduction Total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy (TIRFM) is a cutting-edge optical technique that excites the fluorophores in a fragile axial region to visualize the cellular events occurring close to the cell surface. The evanescent field, a near-field wave which decays in intensity over a sub-wavelength distance, is used as
