Biotechnology is the widely used term. Biotech term can be defined in number of ways. So let us check it out some of the definitions and a simple and brief explanation of biotechnology.

  • Biotechnology: With the help of genetic engineering uses living organism or their parts or components to produce various types of useful commercial products such as crops which are pest resistant, Novel pharmaceuticals, New strains of bacteria etc.
  • Biotechnology is the branch of biology which uses scientific knowledge or techniques such as genetic engineering and improves and modifies plants, microorganism or animals.
  • In simple words we can say that it is the fusion of advanced technologies with the biology knowledge, which modifies genetic material of the living cells which will in return produce new substance or new modified functions.
Now a days Biotechnology is one of the popular and growing field with bright future. I hope you might have got some of the idea about the term Biotechnology. It is very wide and interesting topic.

Applications of Conductometry

Some applications of conductometry are discussed here, conductometry in analytical chemistry is used to measure the progress of chemical reactions. Conductometric titration is carried out in order to measure the  electrical conductivity of the reaction mixture. This type of titration gives a sharp end point for the colored solution.

This type of titration is used to check water pollution in lakes as well as rivers.It is also used to check the alkalinity of the fresh waterSalinity of the sea water can also be checked by this method.It is also used to trace antibiotics.Used for tracing microorganism in food microbiologyTo check the solubility of sparingly soluble salts.Purity of distilled water and de ionised water can determined.
