The photoLab series portable spectrophotometers for the VIS and
UV/VIS range offer the unique combination of systematic and
spectral analytics with analytical quality assurance (AQA) and
the convenience provided by the filter photometer. Thanks to
state-of-the-art technology all photoLab portable
spectrophotometer models have optimized operation handling –
fast, direct and intuitive. The portable spectrophotometers
offer menu navigation through all applications, large backlit
graphic display for concise operation with the structured menu
and graphical evaluation, and direct access to standard
functions such as menu related settings, dilution, quotation
mode via function keys. The portable spectrophotometers also
offer selection tables for convenient method selection and
searchable fields for data, parameters and methods. The
photoLab portable spectrophotometers feature data filters for
selective measuring data set choices and use a USB connector for
all data transfers.
Portable Spectrophotometers - Systematic Analysis
photoLab portable spectrophotometers are used for routine
measurement with standard test kits. It is important that the
portable spectrophotometers perform these routine measurements
rapidly, precisely, and transfer the data without errors.
photoLab series portable spectrophotometers were designed with
these requirements in mind and offer features such as AutoCheck
for high precision, automatic cuvette recognition for fast and
effective handling, combining round and rectangular cuvette
slots, integrated barcode recognition for cuvettes with
elimination of cuvette failure and prompt start of measurements,
and more than 150 methods for commercial test kits.
Portable Spectrophotometers - Analytical Quality Assurance
The instrument supported Analytical Quality Assurance has become
a must for all industry branches, in order to guarantee
plausible and correct measuring results. The photoLab series
portable spectrophotometers support the AQA for checking the
instrument and individual routine measurements. The portable
spectrophotometers offer administration of user groups for
larger laboratory environments including administrative, user
and guest profiles. Other features of the portable
spectrophotometer's AQA sysem include setting calibration
intervals for the spectrophotometer, grey filter and UV-VIS test
standards, and PhotoCheck, an instrument linearity check at 3
wavelengths and 4 measuring points. The portable
spectrophotometer's AQA can be switched on or off.
Portable Spectrophotometers - Mobile Operation
The portable spectrophotometer’s regular operation place is the
laboratory, although it can be quite practical at some times,
when an instrument can also be operated on-site at a measuring
station. The light-weight and easy to handle photoLab portable
spectrophotometer models enable this mobile operation. The most
important factors to ensure that your portable
spectrophotometers measure correctly is careful transportation,
a protected measuring venue, and a good measuring preparation
procedure especially with regard to the heating period and
zeroing after transportation! Besides the transportation case,
the portable spectrophotometer accessories include a 12 V
adapter cable for a common car storage battery.
Why use the portable spectrophotometers?
Spectral analytics is especially dedicated for studies of
(unknown) substances, development of methods (testing programs)
and for optimizing testing systems: ie. To determine the maximum
absorption and therefore the suitable wavelength for test
systems, spectra are run over a wide wavelength range on the
portable spectrophotometer. This allows the user to identify
the highest and most suitable absorption wavelength.
Additionally, tests such as enzyme kinetics or multi-wavelength
measurements, can also be processed.
