Routine Spectroscopy Made Easier with WPA Spectrophotometers
Product News Aug 17, 2016
Biochrom has a long history of manufacturing quality scientific instruments for a wide range of applications in the clinical, life-science and industrial market. Biochrom has announced the release of two new products to the WPA Visible Spectrophotometer Range, the WPA S800+ and S1200+ spectrophotometers. The new WPA spectrophotometers are ideal for student use in busy teaching laboratories. Both are compact, lightweight and ergonomically designed. They also each include a large display that is easy to read and a simple user interface for rapid set up and analysis.
The WPA S800+ is an entry level visible spectrophotometer for labs performing basic spectroscopy measurements. The WPA S800+ performs single wavelength measurements of absorbance, % transmission, concentration and has the ability to perform simple kinetics. The WPA S1200+ builds on the features of the S800+ with the addition of multi-wavelength measurements and life science methods that include BCA, Bradford, Biuret and Lowry.
Both instruments accept standard 10mm pathlength glass or disposable cuvettes. An optional test tube cell holder is available for test tubes that are between 10 and 18mm in diameter. A heated cell holder is also available for thermostatted measurements at 37°C. The cell holders are easy to remove and install making cleaning and decontamination simple.
• Wider wavelength range of 325-1100 nm
• CMOS detector is the latest in technology
• Option to save data to a USB memory stick for further analysis
• Ability to name samples for easy identification during the experiment
