Future of UV-Vis Spectrophotometers

In 1947, Applied Physics Corporation delivers the first commercially available recording UV-Vis spectrophotometer, the Cary 11, to the Mellon Institute in Pittsburgh, PA.

Turn on the spectrophotometer to warm it up.

In the 1930s, vitamin research indicated that several vitamins, particularly vitamin A, absorb ultraviolet (UV) light. Spurred by the American government’s interest in measuring vitamin content in soldiers’ rations using ultraviolet and visible (UV-Vis) light, this research culminated in the commercial launch of UV-Vis spectrophotometers in the early 1940s. Of these, the Beckman DU spectrophotometer—first sold in 1941—distinguished itself from competing products by delivering more accurate results and reducing analysis time from hours, or even weeks, to minutes.

Place cuvette 1 in the sample holder of the spectrophotometer.

The spectrophotometer will establish the wavelength of light that penitrats the chloroplast solution in turn determining the amount of electrons reduced.

The intensively cultivated agricultural plants average about 3% in photosynthetic efficiency, and most crops range from 1-4%. This is also typical of algae.

In lab 4b, the spectrophotometer measured the light transmittance …

Whether as standalone instruments or high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) detectors, UV-Vis spectrophotometers are indispensible for measuring analyte concentrations—in scientific research, academic teaching, and QA/QC laboratories studying pharmaceuticals, proteins, DNA, solar panels, semiconductors, and coatings. New instrument designs and accessories have expanded the range of UV-Vis samples— from liquids traditionally measured in milliliter volumes in 1-cm cuvettes to today’s micro volume.

Nobel laureate Bruce Merrifield referred to the UV-Vis spectrophotometer as “probably the most important instrument ever developed toward the advancement of bioscience.”

In this experiment, chloroplasts are extracted from spinach leaves and incubated with DPIP in the presence of light. As the DPIP is reduced and becomes colorless, the resultant increase in light transmittance is measured over a period of time using a spectrophotometer. The experimental design matrix is presented in Table 1.3.

What are specific uses for a spectrophotometer in a biology lab

Links to pigments (chlorophyll and carotenoids) and linksto light provide absorption spectra of chlorophylls and carotenoids.
