A spectrophotometer is a special instrument that measures how much light a substance absorbs. Every substance will transmit (reflect) and absorb light slightly differently. Like how a fingerprint identifies each individual human, knowing exactly how much red (or green, or blue, etc.) gets absorbed allows us to identify and quantify varied materials.
A spectrophotometer is used in many areas of science including microbiology, biochemistry, forensics, physics, and medical health. You can use it to measure certain ingredients in a drug to make sure it is effective and safe for consumers. You can measure bacterial growth, or diagnose a patient based on how much uric acid is present in their urine. Even non-scientists use spectrophotometers. Wine-makers, for example, use them to determine how much malic acid (reducing sugars) a wine has in it.
Scientists can also use the spectrophotometer to see how a reaction has progressed. Let’s say you’re studying iron deficiency, a condition that affects over 2 billion people. Antioxidants, vitamins, and other agents are known to help in iron deficiency, but they don’t have a single specific chemical make-up, and so they can’t be directly measured. However, they are known to reduce ferric iron into ferrous iron, a more valuable form to the human body.
YR01862 series are wide screen double beam spectrophotometer. They adopt double beam long light path design to ensure the stability and accuracy; They are the best choice of high quality spectrophotometers.
YR01862 series’ double light path design can prevent circuit fluctuation and stray light to ensure stability of the instrument.
YR01862 series’ unique 520mm long light path design greatly improved resolution and the bandwidth can reach 0.5nm.
Multi functions operated directly on the spectrophotometer and display the test results’ curve and data: wavelength scanning, standard curve, kinetics, multi wavelength scanning, DNA/Protein test.
YR01862 series use a rigid 16mm diecast aluminum base as their optical mount to ensure the stability and reliability.
All baseline, wavelength, dark current can be calibrated automatically to keep good running conditions.
YR01862 series have a 6 inches LCD display to show results and curves directly on the screen.
YR01862 series are equipped with USB port to connect with a PC, the software comes standard with the instrument.
