Thermo Fisher simplifies UV-Vis spectroscopy

Evolution 200 series streamlines QA/QC processes

Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced the Evolution 200 series of UV-Visible spectrophotometers featuring Insight software with CUE (Customised User Environment) scripting capabilities, enabling the operator to simplify workflow.

There are three instruments in the series for applications ranging from standard quantitative analysis to research life science assays. They are for routine QA/QC analyses in the life science, food and beverage and material science industries as well as offering fast data collection rates for kinetics measurements (up to 100 data points/sec).

The Evolution 200 instruments feature high quality accessories and application-specific technology to meet sampling needs.

Innovative Smart accessories enable accurate, cost-effective sample handling with automated software recognition and programmable control. Adding temperature control and fibre optic accessories can increase the instrument’s productivity and extend sampling options.

In addition, the Evolution 220 and Evolution 260 Bio feature Application Focused Beam Geometry (AFBG) technology that tailors the instrument’s optical system to specific applications for micro-cells, solid sampling and fibre optics.

The Evolution 260 Bio includes enhanced Insight life science software, offering pre-programmed assay methods for increased accuracy and convenience.

The software’s data browser feature allows users to preview a thumbnail of results before opening the file and to sort by workbook type, file name and date. In addition, the workbook format helps organise data, method and accessory options by saving them all in one place. The workbook can be reopened to continue capturing data using the same instrument configuration, saving time and improving the accuracy of results.
