Biotechnology

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.

Quantitative Analysis of Low-concentration Hydrogen Content in Titanium Alloy
Can we perform quantitative analysis of hydrogen in a titanium alloy to prevent hydrogen embrittlement?
Elemental micro-analysis of leaves using EDXRF
Calcium micro-nodules are identified within mulberry leaves, and XRF mapped imaging provides a correlation between nodule concentration and leaf age. In a seperate study, the uptake of heavy element pollutants by plants is investigated, with high resolution images quickly acquired to show the distribution of lead through the leaf.
AFM-TERS measurements in a liquid environment with side illumination/collection
AFM-TERS measurements in a liquid environment with side illumination/collection
Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) associated to Raman spectroscopy has proven to be a powerful technique for probing chemical properties at the nanoscale. TERS in liquids will bring promising results in in-situ investigation of biological samples, catalysis and electrochemical reactions.
Biological applications of XRF microscopy
The effect of zinc on gastric ulcer healing has been investigated - mapped imaging of tissue samples shows evidence of zinc accumulation within the ulcerated tissue. In a separate study a fish otolith ('ear bone') has been analysed to reveal its heterogeneous elemental composition and physical structure.
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.
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.
