The Thermo Scientific 840-207900 Genesys 10S visible-light spectrophotometer has a 325 to 1100mn wavelength range, 5.0nm bandwidth, and a tungsten-halogen lamp, and is used for applications in quality control, reaction monitoring, and colorimetric and life science analysis. Preprogrammed and configurable methods include wavelength scanning at up to 4,200nm/minute, absorbance ration and absorbance difference measurements, quantitative analysis with up to 15 standards and five calibration curve fits, and multiple fixed measurements at up to 31 wavelengths. The performance verification report includes time, date, and instrument serial number to conform to GLP/GMP and regulatory compliance. The 5.0nm bandwidth is used for routine quality control measurements when high resolution is not required. The tungsten-halogen lamp and single detector support routine measurements in the visible range. The integrated six-cell charger increases sample throughput. The graphical display has an LCD backlight to ease reading. A standard curve screen provides concentration method set-up, and built-in test methods perform stay light, noise, and resolution analysis. A sealed keypad protects the instrument from spills.

A spectrophotometer is a device used to measure and analyze aspects of light absorption in liquids and solids. Readings are displayed in digital or analog format. A spectrophotometer can have a handheld body for field use, or a bench-top body for laboratory applications. It may have one or more adapters to enable it to measure surfaces or liquids. A spectrophotometer is used for testing and measuring in anatomy, chemistry, agriculture, process plant, food and beverage making, homeland security, and educational applications.
