The Thermo Scientific AQ8000 Orion 8000 AquaMate UV/Vis spectrophotometer has a 190 to 1100nm wavelength range, a 1.8nm spectral bandwidth, and a xenon flash lamp, and is used for applications in water and wastewater analysis. The instrument includes more than 260 preprogrammed methods stored on a USB memory stick the usage of Orion AQUAfast, Merck, CHEMetrics or Hach chemistries. The memory stick allows operators to load at the instrument only the required methods, and so as to add or put off methods as needed. The 1.8nm bandwidth provides lower detection limits and improved signal-to-noise performance. The xenon lamp provides an internal standard for wavelength accuracy verification, and the xenon flash lamp and beam splitter provide real-time reference beam correction with each and every lamp flash. The three-cell holder includes one adjustable holder for 13 to 25mm round vials, one holder for 20 or 50mm rectangular vials, and one holder for 10mm square vials. The six-cell holder incorporates up to six 10mm square vials, with one position reserved for a blank allowing automated analysis of up to five samples. The single-cell holder incorporates a single 10mm square vial. The instrument has three USB ports, for connection to a USB stick (included), or computer or printer (sold one at a time).

A spectrophotometer is a device used to measure and analyze aspects of light absorption in liquids and solids. Readings are displayed in digital or analog format. A spectrophotometer can have a handheld body for field use, or a bench-top body for laboratory applications. It’ll have a number of adapters to enable it to measure surfaces or liquids. A spectrophotometer is used for testing and measuring in anatomy, chemistry, agriculture, process plant, food and beverage making, place of origin security, and educational applications.
Thermo Fisher Scientific manufactures analytical instruments, laboratory equipment, consumables, and software under the Thermo Scientific, Fisher Scientific, Barnstead, Nalgene, and Orion brands, among others. The company is headquartered in Waltham, MA.
