Our Story

The first CamSpec spectrophotometers were designed and manufactured at Cambridge in the United Kingdom in 1986.

The first instruments were used for testing amniotic fluid to check on the health of foetuses, and for measuring molybdenum in steel production. The only instruments in those days were the M201 Visible instrument, the M301 UV-Visible and the M302 UV-Visible which had an Auto zero function.

Today there is a full range of UV-Vis instruments including Double beam scanning, Single beam scanning and special instruments for SPF and CHROMA applications, which are used in laboratories all over the world in almost every sector you can image.

CamSpec is now based in Leeds, United Kingdom and forms part of Spectronic-CamSpec Ltd, a third-generation family business.
