We perceive the world through the narrow window of our limited human senses. While the electromagnetic spectrum extends from direct current to X-rays, our eyes respond only to frequencies running from red through violet. Our ears ignore most of what nature has to say, unable to react to the low-pitch infrasound chatter of elephants and the high-pitch sonar of bats. Throughout history, instruments that opened our vision to the very small and the very distant changed long-held beliefs about the cause of infectious disease and man’s place in the cosmos. With greater precision came greater insights. Instruments capable of measuring the speed of light led Einstein to relativity. Devices that detected tiny changes in the Earth’s gravity guided Cold War submarines and today guide the search for deep oil.
Analysis instrumentation takes us the step beyond observation, by in a very broad sense describing our relationship to the unseen realms. Sampling our surroundings, analysis instruments tell us if the air is safe to breathe, the water safe to drink. Chemical analysis instrumentation distinguishes among thousands of compounds that appear identical.
