Spectrophotometry Laboratory

via Valdisavoia - Ground floor - Room 23
Person in charge: Marco Sebastiano Bella
Preposto: Salvatore Bordonaro
Laboratory usage: research

The laboratory is provided with a fume hood, equipped with nitrogen flow, and a spectrophotometer UV-VIS operative in the principal analytic modalities (fixed wavelength, spectral range measurement and kinetic measurement).

The described instrumentation allows to determine many analytical parameters. The most important are:

  • Content of polyphenols and tannins in livestock feedstuffs
  • Antioxidant properties of meat, milk and blood
  • Quantification of lipid and protein oxidation products
