    Certain chemical analyses are important to evaluating or monitoring a biochemical reaction. For example; the measurement of dissolved oxygen is critical for monitoring aerobic conditions. Measuring and adjusting pH levels are important for the growth and utilization of bacteriological media. Chromatography, both HPLC and GC can be used to measure and quantify various compounds in any given system. Biochemical reactions are no less chemical, simply because they are organic. Both rely on a multitude of instrumental analytical techniques in the lab.
