Instrument Technology

Analytical chemistry and its instruments provide the measurements and quantitative information underlying much of the research and commercial activity in chemistry, biology and medicine. The Center for Analytical Instrumentation Development (CAID) brings together chemists, physicists, engineers, biologists and physicians from multiple schools at Purdue University and other institutions in the region. The mission of the Center is to develop innovative "machine-tools of science" that enable discoveries across a broad spectrum of life science. These activities will lead to routine, point-of-need devices for use in drug discovery, clinical diagnostics, environmental monitoring, and the fight against chemical and biological terrorism. America leads the world in the development of analytical instrumentation and we propose to lead America.
