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 announced the release of two new products to the Libra Visible Spectrophotometer Range, the Libra S4+ and S6+ spectrophotometers. The new Libra spectrophotometers are ideal for education and QC laboratories. Both models 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 Libra S4+ is an entry level visible spectrophotometer for labs performing basic spectroscopy measurements. The Libra S4+ takes single wavelength measurements of absorbance, percentage transmission, concentration and has the ability to perform simple kinetics. The Libra S6+ builds on the features of the Libra S4+ with the addition of multi-wavelength measurements and life science methods that include BCA, Bradford, Biuret and Lowry.
Both instruments accept standard 10 mm pathlength glass or disposable cuvettes. An optional test tube cell holder is available for test tubes that are between 10 and 18 mm 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
