"Most important of all is the lack of down time. We have several of these spectrometers and they have survived hundreds of novice users. The source lamps are occasionally left on, shortening their useful lifetime, but the spectrometers keep working. The software is idiosyncratic but will perform most operations. In fact, I found the DOS version of the software to be more user-friendly. I do most of my own mathematical operations via spreadsheet and don't use the data-handling features. "
Fast, reliable UV-Vis for pharmaceutical and chemical analysis
The Agilent 8453 UV-Visible spectrophotometer uses a photodiode array (PDA) for simultaneous measurement of the complete ultra-violet to visible light spectrum in less than one second. The PDA technique brings exceptional reliability and repeatability. Using Agilent ChemStation software you get powerful data analysis and data archival to ensure compliance with good laboratory practices (GLP) and pharmacopoeia requirements.
