Biochemical Techniques

Some of the widely used biochemical methods are given in brief in the following lines:

  1. For biochemical analysis, the pH of a solution must be accurately measured by a pH meter.
  2. Chromatography is another important biochemical technique to separate small qualities of organic (and inorganic) compounds depending upon the rate of their flow on the chromatographic paper.
  3. X-rays and crystallography are used to determine the molecular organization of substances. The molecular configuration of a double helix of DNA was determined by Watson and Crick through the application of this biochemical technique.

Tissue culture

It is the process in which pieces of tissues or isolated cells are cultivated in a special fluid medium in a container of glass, plastic, tubes, vials, or bottles.
