Identifying substances without touching them is possible through spectrophotometry, as long as light can shine through a sealed container with the substance. When these are dangerous or toxic, or when identifying gases, the use of a spectrophotometer allows for safe handling and study. With our spectrophotometer, students will rapidly and effortlessly be able to see the results of their experiments in the laboratory. Different substance molecules absorb different quantities of light and react differently with light beams, like ultraviolet light, and the spectrophotometer allows for the light measurement by its wavelength.
Spectrophotometers measure the reflection or transmission properties of a material as a function of wavelength. They use photometers that are able to measure the intensity of a light beam as a function of it wavelength, as it is transmitted or emitted by specific substance. Our Spectrophotometer WPA S800 Spectrawave is the ideal solution for a lightweight, compact, and ergonomically designed for the laboratory. If you are looking for a spectrophotometer for your school laboratory, our product is easy to use due to its big display. You can utilise standard 10mm pathlength cuvettes. A test tube adaptor set is also available with 10, 12, and 16mm tubes for any requirement. The spectrophotometer measures Concentration, % Transmission, and Absorbance. It can also output absorbance time plots straight to the chart recorder. With a wavelength range between 330nm and 800nm, the spectrophotometer measures the wavelength of ultraviolet, infra-red, and visible light.
For schools, the Spectrophotometer WPA S800 Spectrawave will be an essential laboratory equipment piece for every class. Students will easily understand lessons and how the equipment works.
