  Working Principles
Click to ViewDouble beam spectrophotometer instrument is used to determine the amount of light of a specific wavelength absorbed by an analyte in a sample. A beam of light from a visible and/or UV light source (colored red) is separated into its component wavelengths by a prism or diffraction grating. Each monochromatic (single wavelength) beam in turn is split into two equal intensity beams by a half-mirrored device.

  Applications
  User Instructions
UV-VIS Spectrophotometer can be used in both qualitative and quantitative analysis of DNA, RNA, and proteins. Qualitative analysis can be used and spectrophotometers are used to record spectra of compounds by scanning broad wavelength regions to determine the absorbance properties (the intensity of the colour) of the compound at each wavelength.• Qualitative and quantitative data can be provided, • All sample should be homogenous. • Samples should not be toxic or hazardous.
