  • Split Beam (RBC) UV/Vis Spectrophotometer 190-1100nm (3nm/5nm bandwidth)
  • Pre-programmed methods for DNA, RNA, Oligos, proteins and cell density
  • Nucleic acid scans for purity checking
  • Low volume capability with Microvolume cuvettes
  • Novel optics with a Xenon source for long lamp lifetime and low running costs
  • Lightweight and stackable for storage


Flexible Data Export Options

Results may be downloaded to a USB flash drive or printed to an optional integrated graphical printer for a permanent record. Alternatively, results can be exported via a cable connection to a suitable PC running Print Via Computer (PVC) software or wireless accessory (optional).


Comprehensive IQ/OQ Support for your Biowave instrument:

Comprehensive IQ/OQ documentation and service support is available for our Biowave instruments allowing the qualification of wavelength accuracy, wavelength repeatability, photometric accuracy, stray light, resolution, noise, and drift.

If your lab requires IQ (Installation Qualification) and OQ (Operational Qualification), contact us to learn more.
