Biotechnology, or biology-based technology, has grown in leaps and bounds. Biotechnology is simply defined as the use of living organisms and systems to develop or make products. Humans have used biotechnology for thousands of years in agriculture, food production and medicine. But it now also includes sciences such as genomics, applied immunology, and the development of pharmaceutical therapies. Depending on the tools and applications, Biotechnology can also overlap with related fields, such as bioengineering, biomanufacturing and biomedical engineering.
Simple equipment such as incubators and shakers no longer define the biotech laboratory. Everything from cell preparation, cell counters and cell stirring, to tissue processors, tissue bass and slide scanners can encompass biotechnology instrumentation.
Thermo, Fisher, VWR, Bio-Rad, Agilent, Stratagene, Harvard, Robbins, Eppendorf, Wheaton, Hoefer and Hach are all common manufacturers of Biotechnology equipment.
