Understanding Biotechnology & Life Sciences Equipment

Biotechnology is a life science field of study that looks at the intersection of technology and biology. Due to its broad definition, it overlaps with related fields such as bioengineering, pharmaceutical drug discovery, and even genetically modified foods. However, it should not be confused with gene editing, even though they are also related. Though the term “biotechnology” was coined in the early 20th century, humans have been applying technological advances in order to mold living organisms for centuries. For example, domesticating animals and brewing beer are some of the earliest applications of biotech.

Today, this life science field of study continues to push scientific advances forward by using the latest technological findings to improve our everyday lives. Biotechnology has seen a recent boom as advances in the tech sector have allowed for more complex computing power for these analytical devices. For example, artificial intelligence is beginning to find its way into drug and vaccine discovery, allowing for faster results and more advanced testing methods. 

Industry biotech and life science fields are growing, and they do not appear to be stopping anytime soon. Biotech related devices are as varied as their applications and are often incredibly specialized. Researchers often model their entire work around one type of device and without it their work could not continue. Acquiring the exact device that your lab needs should not be limited by the price to purchase that equipment.

Anaerobic Chamber

Anaerobic chambers, or anaerobic glove boxes, are used whenever there is an experiment requiring the handling of oxygen-sensitive materials. An enormous range of labs use them, but companies researching biofuels, studying microbiology, creating new drugs, and identifying infectious diseases all find these machines invaluable.

Bio-Layer Interferometer

Bio-layer interferometry, or BLI, is an optical analytical technique that observes the associative and dissociative interaction of molecules. In chemistry, it is important to know the substances’ affinity, thermodynamic properties, and stoichiometry. Using white light, BLI looks at how molecules bind to or are disengaged from other molecules.

Cell Counter

Depending on what type of work you do, getting an accurate count of how many cells are in a sample is important. Automated cell counters are devices that allow doctors and laboratory workers to know exactly how many cells, dead or alive, are in a culture.

Colony Picker

Duplicating cultured microbial samples is done when working with or studying microorganisms. Colony picking, either automated or done manually, describes an instrument that picks microbial colonies out of a solid medium and reproduces them into a separate media.

Electroporator

Microbiology is home to a wide variety of specialized techniques, of which electroporation is one. Electroporation, or electropermeabilization as it is sometimes called, applies an electrical field to the cells in a sample to increase the permeability of the cellular membrane.

Flow Cytometer

Flow cytometry is a powerful technique that simultaneously measures and analyzes multiple physical characteristics of single particles, usually cells, as they flow in a fluid stream through a beam of light.

Microarray Scanner

A DNA microarray, also commonly known as a DNA chip or biochip, is a collection of microscopic DNA spots attached to a solid surface. Scientists use DNA microarrays to measure the expression levels of large numbers of genes simultaneously, or to genotype multiple regions of a genome.

Microplate Reader

Microplate readers are used to detect biological, chemical, or physical events in microtiter plates via the measurement of light. Plate readers/detectors are the workhorses in many laboratories and see an extensive use in many applications across a wide range of disciplines including life sciences, basic research, target discovery, lead discovery, bioassay validation, quality control, drug safety, toxicity testing, and biopharmaceutical/pharmaceutical manufacturing processes.

NGS – Next Generation Sequencing

NGS technology is evolving at an unprecedented speed. Scientists can now routinely examine a single genome a large number of times, observe individual changes, study population variations, study the microbiome and metagenomics, differentiate cancer genomes from healthy genomes, study the epigenome, and investigate the possibility of personalized medicine, among other applications.

Nucleic Acid and Protein Purification

Extracting and purifying nucleic acids from viral, genomic, or cellular origins is important in studying biomolecules. By isolating these molecules they become easier to work with during other downstream processes, test preparations, or analysis.

PCR System

The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a technique used to amplify DNA sequences in vitro. It is widely used for many applications such as molecular biology, microbiology, genetics, pharmaceutical research, diagnostics, clinical laboratories, forensic science, environmental science, food science, hereditary studies, and paternity testing.

Peptide Synthesizers

Created in 1963, solid phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) was a wonderful process that helped enable the creation of peptides. This process allows for the development of automated peptide synthesizers, machines that drastically simplify and expedite the production of peptides.

Surface Plasmon Resonance

Observing how a chemical substance or biological ligand interacts with a transducer can be referred to as biosensing. Surface plasmon resonance is an optical biosensing technique. Surface plasmon resonance, or SPR, are important tools used for analysis of molecular interactions.

Western Blot Imaging Systems

Western blot imaging systems, sometimes known as gel documentation systems or gel imagers, refer to a specific type of equipment that is commonly used in laboratories that perform research or offer services related to molecular biology.

Lease Any Biotech/Life Science Equipment That Suits Your Needs

Operating Lease

This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.

Sale-Leaseback

If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale-leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.

Operating Capital Benefits
