Properties of Absorbance and Turbidimetric Scattering Measurements in Photometry

Photometric technology is commonly used to measure two different phenomena: photon absorption (absorbance) or photon scatter (turbidimetric). Understanding the difference between these two measurement types are especially important in assay development, data analysis and troubleshooting.
