ESR applications in Life Sciences

In 21st century Life Science is driven by the desire to elucidate fundamental life processes.

EPR/ESR spectroscopy in life sciences

Very sensitive and easy to use benchtop spectrometers enable scientists to observe the pathway of free radicals in the human body (e.g. nitric oxide), monitor the metabolic activity of cells, and refine knowledge on biomolecule's structure and function.

The list of applications seems to be endless with our state-of-the-art EPR/ESR spectrometer MS 5000. Free radicals can be measured directly in a fast & sensitive manner. This is done by the use of spin probes, which selectively collect present paramagnetic species, or the use of spin labels, which add an extrinsic paramagnetic function to the desired molecule.
