This handbook covers some primary instruments-based techniques used in modern biological science and medical research programs. Key features of the book include introductory notes for each topic, a systematic presentation of relevant methods, and troubleshooting guides for practical settings.

Topics covered in part 2 include:

  • - Fourier transform mid-infrared (FT-MIR) spectroscopy
  • - High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)
  • - Raman spectroscopy
  • - Circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy
  • - Transmission electron microscopy (TEM)
  • - Scanning electron microscopy (SEM)
  • - SEM-EDX and its applications in plant science

This book is a simple, useful handbook for students and teachers involved in graduate courses in life sciences and medicine. Readers will learn about the basics of featured techniques, the relevant applications and the established protocols.


Molecular level understanding of biochemical mechanism requires a thorough knowledge of interdisciplinary sciences. Biomedical applications have been supported by scientific hypothesis for years and innovations have helped scientists to make contemporary research through these cutting-edge technologies. Further, these technologies not only overlap in several aspects but complement each other, supporting and highlights molecular level understanding of biochemical pathways.

Clinical research uses instrumental techniques that have never been used before multiple factors affect pathology and etiology of diseases. For this reason, several instrumental techniques have been emerging and basis of these methods originate from current methodologies. This means that developing instrumentation merges novel scientific data with basic spectroscopic-calorimetric technologies. Therefore, the second volume of this book will help current and future applications of medical and biological data.

As the first volume, the second part of the book provides a training platform and application modules of each technique and may help individual investigators to guide research practices.
