UV/Vis Spectrophotometer

Spectrophotometers are used for the measurement of transmittance or reflectance of samples. Spectrophotometers either measure light in the UV-Vis range or the infrared (IR) range. The spectrophotometers listed here are all UV-Vis. New England BioGroup offers a full range of UV/Vis spectrophotometers:Cuvette based: BioChrom (single beam UV/Vis spectrophometers, split beam UV/Vis spectrophotometers, and double-beam UV/Vis spectrophotometers).

by Biochrom


  • Split Beam (RBC) UV/Vis Spectrophotometer 190-900nm (5nm bandwidth)
  • Pre-programmed methods for DNA, RNA, proteins and cell density
  • Nucleic acid scans for purity checking (scan 220-330nm)
  • Low volume capability with 10µL min. quartz cells
  • Novel optics with a Xenon source for long lamp lifetime and low running costs
  • Fleible data export optional accessories include Export to PC software, built in printer or SD card Method/Data storage.


The Biowave DNA uses novel optics that does not need a lid, for high energy xenon light source covers the range 190-900nm, has a long lamp lifetime.  Simple selection software and large graphical display provides for ease of use and data interpretation. This instrument has a 2 year warranty and the Xenon lamp has a 3 year warranty.

Built in Life Science methods

The stored methods include DNA, RNA and oligonucleotide calculations, protein assays such as direct UV measurement, BCA, Biuret, Bradford and Lowry and cell density measurement. Unlike many dedicated life science instruments, the Biowave DNA can also measure Absorbance or concentration at any wavelength so there is complete flexibility for future applications. For added convenience it is possible to display a scan of the nucleic acid profile which is particularly useful for RNA samples where impurities may be present in the 230 nm region, yet not have an adverse effect on the 260/280 Absorbance ratio. The system is compatible with both Quartz and disposable low volume UV cuvettes.

Choice of data export options

The instrument can be used as a stand alone or results may be exported. Results can be printed directly using an (optional) integrated high quality graphical printer for a permanent record. Export options include via a USB connection to a suitable PC running Print Via Computer (PVC) software (included) for advanced reporting and data storage. Alternatively the SD card accessory (optional) allows laboratories to export to standard SD or SDHC memory cards. This will be particularly useful to laboratories wishing to clone methods and folders between instruments. Only one optional accessory can be fitted to each instrument.

  • Resolution PC software included. Optional module for 21CFRpart 11 compliance

(* at 1nm bandwidth)

Designed for busy multi-user laboratories
The Biochrom Libra S80 model is s robustly designed to deliver reliable, low maintenance UV/Visible spectrophotometry in environments with multiple users in a regulated environment such as method development. Users can quickly and easily walk up to the instrument, set up a sample, select the appropriate measurement protocols and collect the results.  Results and methods can be stored on board or the convenient USB port enables individual users to load personal methods and transport data. 21CFR Part 11 compliance via the optional Resolution software.

Easy to use
Colour touch screen user interface with menu driven software and simple intuitive icons is easy to both use and to learn. Results can be easily transported to a remote PC by memory stick for analysis later, or link to a PC directly with PVC software (included). Full PC control with Resolution software

Built in Software
Full suite of software applications provided as standard with real choice of data export methods. Trace Manager enables you to manipulate data stored on the instrument or USB memory stick. Multi level User log on facility allows supervisors to restrict access to software functionality allowing secure methods to be set up.

Software Modules Function
Single Wavelength Measurement Fixed wavelength, Abs/%T, and Concentration (factor)
Sample overlays, automatic feature detection and post run data manipulation
Concentration Standard Curve Quantitation using calibration curves with multiple standards and a choice of curve fits
Kinetics Serial (or parallel measurements with optional cell changer) including sample overlays and post run data manipulation
Life Science
DNA, RNA & Oligo concentration and purity measurement with optional wavelength scanning. CyDyeTM DNA quantitation. Tm calculation. Protein concentration by direct UV measurement or Bradford, Biuret, Lowry or BCA colorimetric methods
Equation Editor Turn your instrument into a “custom application analyzer” by setting up stored methods including calculations based on measured sample data, for example: Absorbance difference and ratios.

Easy to Connect
Two USB ports are provided as standard. One is conveniently located by the user touchscreen to enable USB memory sticks (flash drives) to be be used to both store data and methods in secure and ASCII formats. Particularly useful for laboratories wishing to clone methods between multiple instruments. The other USB port is on the side of the instrument is used for PC communication, control, software update and print via computer (PVC). All stand-alone Biochrom Libra instruments offer users a choice in export and print functionality with selection parameters stored as part of any method.

  • Export to PC via USB cable (standard)
  • Built in printer (optional)
  • Export to a PC via Bluetooth (optional)
  • Full PC control with Resolution Software (included)

Resolution PC Software
Supplied with the Biochrom Libra S80 Resolution PC software offers users extra flexibility on data collection and manipulation. Resolution has the power to work in the way you want and includes modules for fixed wavelength, wavelength scanning, kinetics and quantitation measurements plus a validation routine for checking instrument performance. Data export options include Microsoft® Word and Excel® plus Adobe® PDF formats. Optional upgrade modules are also available including Resolution Life for Nucleic Acid and protein measurement and Resolution CFR for 21 CFR part 11 compliance.

Superb Optical Design
High energy throughput double beam optical system with variable bandwidth (0.5nm, 1nm, 2nm, 4nm) gives users the flexibility and performance to measure demanding sample types whilst ensuring EP compliance.

Cell Holders
