The invention of the microcomputer in the mid-1970s and its subsequent low-cost proliferation has opened up a new world for the laboratory scientist. Tedious data collection can now be automated relatively cheaply and with an enormous increase in reliability. New techniques of measurement are accessible with the "intelligent" instrumentation made possible by these programmable devices, and the ease of use of even standard measurement techniques may be improved by the data processing capabilities of the humblest micro. The latest items of commercial laboratory instrumentation are invariably "computer controlled", although this is more likely to mean that a microprocessor is involved than that a versatile microcomputer is provided along with the instrument. It is clear that all scientists of the future will need some knowledge of computers, if only to aid them in mastering the button pushing associated with gleaming new instruments. However, to be able to exploit this newly accessible computing power to the full the practising laboratory scientist must gain sufficient understanding to utilise the communication channels between apparatus on the laboratory bench and program within the computer. This book attempts to provide an introduction to those communication channels in a manner which is understandable for scientists who do not specialise in electronics or computers.

The authors believe that the effectiveness of future generations of scientists depends in part on their ability to use intelligently, diagnose, and modify their microcomputer-based and electronic instrumentation. Using a "top-down" approach, the authors present electronic concepts, principles, and technology that are impacting our daily lives. They start at the top, by providing a broad perspective of electronic instrumentation, and work down to functional modules, devices, and detailed operations. This top-down approach enables all of the pieces to fit together so that a working knowledge is developed as one proceeds through the chapters. Written specifically for chemists, physicists, engineers, biologists, medical researchers, students, and other technical personnel who can benefit from "making the right connections" to modern instrumentation, this book will empower you to gain better control and make better use of your microcomputers and laboratory instruments.

TRAC: Trends in Analytical Chemistry, Volume 8 provides information pertinent to the trends in the field of analytical chemistry. This book presents a variety of topics related to analytical chemistry, including protein purification, biotechnology, Raman spectroscopy in pharmaceutical field, electrokinetic chromatography, and flow injection analysis. Organized into 50 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of scientometric investigations that enable the quantitative study of the evolution of its various components and can thereby uncover how information is utilized to diffuse and generate knowledge. This text then discusses the economic significance of sensing and control as being the main factors in determining process economics and in offering products and business opportunities. Other chapters consider the important relationship between Raman spectroscopy and other analytical methods. This book discusses as well the interfaces between a gas chromatograph and a Fourier transform infrared spectrometer. The final chapter deals with chemometrics routines. This book is a valuable resource for analytical chemists, and biochemists.
