A spectrophotometer is a piece of equipment used to measure the absorbance of a sample, as a function of the wavelength of electromagnetic radiation. There are several types of spectrophotometers. These are grouped according to the type of sample analyzed; There are atomic absorption and molecular absorption (commonly known as a UV-VIS spectrophotometer).

Spectrophotometers are used in laboratories to determine what the beam of electromagnetic radiation or light is and thus identify, qualify and quantify what its intensity is like. In the same way, it allows determining its efficiency, sensitivity, resolution and spectral range. Which will depend on the variabilities of the design and the choice of the optical components it contains

Types of Spectrophotometers that may be needed in a Laboratory

Handheld Spectrophotometer

Spectrophotometry is a technique that has the ability to evaluate and measure how much light can be absorbed by a substance, either solid or liquid, this technique seeks to measure the luminous intensity of the sample when a beam of light passes through it. Spectrometry is based on the Beer-Lambert law, this law explains that there is an exponential interaction between the transmission of light through a substance and the concentration of the same, this foundation allows it to be used in different areas both medical and scientific.

Spectrometry has several applications in different areas, such as biology, medicine and chemistry, among the functions of this technique is to analyze quantitatively and qualitatively the problem or unknown samples in research laboratories.

Multi Angles Spectrophotometer

  • Multi-angle measurement
  • Adopt 3 light sources, 1 receiver to measure 3 measuring angles at the same time.
  • More intuitive display The touch screen can display all angle measurement results, a more intuitive view of the complete data.
  • Touch screen can display all angle measurement results, more intuitive view of complete data.
  • 256" dual-matrix CMOS imaging element image sensor
  • Higher optical resolution ensures the measurement speed, accuracy, stability and consistency of the instrument.
  • Core technology makes it the same platform with international standards and full compatibility.

Spectrophotometer operating

A spectrophotometer, commonly known as a UV/VIS spectrophotometer, is a device used to measure the absorption of radiation in the visible and ultraviolet light spectrum. It is an instrument used by scientists in laboratories to investigate materials that reflect, absorb and emit light.

These instruments are used in both industry and research to identify and quantify chemical compounds in a sample. Spectrophotometers detect a range of wavelengths from ultraviolet to visible light.
