A beginners guide to laboratory spectrophotometry and the Beer-Lambert Law.

Spectrophotometry is a key tool used in bioscience labs for determining the concentration of compounds in a solution, and to determine the rate of reactions.

This course looks at the theory behind spectroscopy, that is, how it works, and examines the Beer-Lambert Law. Plus the course will cover how to calculate the concentrations of compounds for a given absorbance.

I have over 16 years of experience teaching on undergraduates biomedical science degrees, and I have worked as a research bioscientist for over 25 years.

Everyday I perform the types of calculations covered in the courses offered at Math4Biosciences, and through my teaching I know how, and where, students struggle with the maths they need to do to pass their classes and to carry out their research.
