True double beam UV Vis scanning spectrophotometer 

M550 True double beam scanning spectrophotometer

This instrument is a True double beam UV Vis scanning spectrophotometer  M550 with parallel sample and reference beams.  The specification is as expected from a top-of-the-range instrument designed for research as well as routine use.

The M550 may be controlled by either UV Analyst or CamSpec Panorama software which is 21 CFR Part II compliant.  This means that it can be used for pharmaceutical analysis requiring FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) approval.

See our Standards for UV-Vis spectrophotometers

We are an ISO 9001:2015 company, so all instruments are individually checked using wavelength and absorbance standards calibrated to international standards.  All Standards are calibrated to UKAS, NIST or NPL.

The M550 fully complies with CE requirements for safety and ESD / EMC emission and susceptibility.

The M550 now has a USB data port to enable file transfers

The M550 has a USB interface for transfer of results to a PC and for PC control of the M550. The  comprehensive Camspec UV-Analyst application software is  available, together with a number of small PC programs dedicated to specialist tasks.
