Sherwood Model 260UV Colorimeter
Sherwood Scientific adds the Model 260UV to its Programmable Colorimeter range
With a working wavelength range spanning 325 to 750 nm, the Model 260UV can be utilised for a wide variety of clinical and non-clinical chemistry tests. These “open” system colorimeters can store up to 100 programmes with options to adjust and set all parameters commonly found in colorimetric protocols; thereby lending themselves to use with most commercially available reagent kits. The instruments are supplied with a set of eight drop in gelatine filters together with a 340nmm interference filter and a heated cuvette holder for operation at 37°C if necessary. Each unit is thereby supplied capable of performing colorimetric tests across the whole visible wavelength spectrum and in part of the near UV region
The basic design of Sherwood Scientific’s colorimeters has been stable for several years and has gained an enviable world-wide reputation for rugged performance. For the 21st century Sherwood Scientific updated its colorimeters with a comprehensive firmware package unique in this class of instrument. The Model 260UV Colorimeter offers features not elsewhere available and provides solutions to the requirements of quality control, water testing and especially for the clinical chemist for low sample runs
RS232 output allows use with a serial printer and every result, blank and calibration is time stamped. Quick Absorbance and Transmission measurements with Auto-Zero, Concentration with Standard Solutions or Factor, and Kinetic Reaction Rate and End Point methods are all possible.
Model 260UV Colorimeters can be supplied with a battery lead allowing utilisation of the colorimeter in field hospitals where the only power source may be the battery of the vehicle in which the clinical technician arrived.
