mi·cro·spec·tro·pho·tom·e·try

(mī'krō-spek'trō-fō-tom' ĕ-trē),
A technique for characterizing and quantitating nucleoproteins in single cells or cell organelles by their natural absorption spectra (ultraviolet) or after binding stoichiometrically in selective cytochemical staining reactions, as in the Feulgen stain for DNA.
See also: cytophotometry.

microspectrophotometry

(mī″krō-spĕk″trō-fō-tŏm′ĕ-trē)
Method for the histochemical study of substances present in cells, such as nucleic acid, based on absorption in the ultraviolet spectrum. This method permits quantitative and qualitative studies of certain cellular components.

Microspectrophotometry and colorimetry are two analytical techniques for obtaining an objective color measurement.
These included radioactive isotopes, electrophoresis, microspectrophotometry, the electroencephalogram, and electromyogram.
