What is Biotechnology?

Biotechnology is a major branch of life sciences that focuses on manipulating living organism and biological systems with the intent to create or modify products for specific use. Biotechnology uses a broad range of biology discipline such as genetics, biochemistry, molecular biology and so on. Biotechnology is used across a diversified range of applications, including medicine, agriculture, industrial, and environmental.

HORIBA offers a large choice of innovative technologies such as steady state and lifetime fluorescence, X-Ray fluorescence, particle size analysis and Zeta potential analysis to support a wide range of biotechnology applications.

High Throughput Screening of Affimer Proteins using SPRi Label-Free Technology
Monitoring Whole Leaf Fluorescence Using Time‐resolved Techniques
Light incident on a leaf can be absorbed by chlorophyll to commence the photosynthetic cycle. Excess energy can be liberated as heat or by emission of fluorescence and this can be used to assess the efficiency of the photosynthetic process. Because of the Kautsky effect, the amount of fluorescence emanating from photosystem II (PSII) is not constant. There is an initial rise, upon illumination followed by a decrease caused by PSII closing down, as it is unable to transfer electrons. There can also be a contribution from PSI to the overall fluorescence. Here we employ different time‐resolved fluorescence techniques to demonstrate the types of measurement that can be performed on a whole leaf.
Stopped flow time‐resolved fluorescence study of serum albumin – curcuminoid binding
Rapid mixing accessories to perform stopped flow measurements have found application in characterizing interactions and reactions occurring in solution. Reactants are expelled from syringes, mixed and injected into a flowcell.
Dye‐protein binding monitored in a microliter volume using timeresolved fluorescence
The potential health benefits stemming from the antioxidant activity of curcumin, commonly found in turmeric (Curcuma longa L), has attracted the interest of several research groups.
