SPECORD® 50, 200, 210, 250 PLUS




SPECORD® PLUS means reliability, user friendliness and flexibility for precise, very easy and versatile UV/Vis analysis.

High-end optics

At the heart of all of our instruments, the optical components are quartz coated and equipped with high-quality encapsulation. They guarantee highest quality, maximum performance and extreme durability. The monochromator with imaging holographic grating enables stray light reduction and absolutely precise measuring results. The minimized number of movable components ensure best reliability, notably improved signal-to-noise ratio and best energy throughput.

Real double-beam

Real double-beam mode for highest precision and a better long-term stability by measuring the sample and reference signal at exact the same moment.
The measurement results always show a current comparison of both beams. This way lamp fluctuation and drifts are corrected by the second beam. Furthermore is a direct compensation of the blanc solution possible.

Convincing details

  • Innovative CDD technology – two temperature controlled detectors for outstanding long-term stability
  • Pre-adjusted and voltage stabilized radiation sources
  • Internal holmium oxide filter for automatic wavelength calibration and for optimized wavelength accuracy and reproducibility
  • Variable spectral resolution includes the smallest details of the spectrum

The SPECORD® PLUS is developed for user friendly operation:

  • Intuitive software navigation
  • Comprehensive method collection
