  • Application Area: nanoparticles scattering spectra

"The Cary 100 is easy to use with a good software interface for beginners and advanced options for the more expert users. I got good S/N ratio for silver nanoparticle solutions LSPR spectra. It has fast readouts based on scan speed that is chosen."

  • Application Area:Routine abs measurements

"Very stable and easy to use. However after the acquisition by Agilent, service has been spotty at best. The instrument is very easy to reconfigure and change lamps. You can use validation tests to test for instrument performance."

  • Application Area:bioanalytical/astrobiology

"It’s a great instrument for teaching labs, easy to use for students, and fairly simple to understand. It’s good for teaching students the fundamentals of spectroscopy. However, it's probably not very good for data that requires high sensitivity, and the interface is uncomplicated but not very customizable."

"We have several Cary spectrophotometers in our Chemistry department in Gothenburg, Sweden. We have several applications for the instruments ranging from chromophore development to enzyme kinetic analysis. The instruments are heavily used by undergraduate and graduate students and are easy to use for everyone."

"This instrument is very easy to use and quick for running samples. It is also very easy to explain to a beginner how to work it and make sure it is being used properly. The only problem with the system is that the computer software runs slow with the older computer. The graphs are easy to run and can be easily interpreted for equations."

  • Application Area:Fluorescent Particle counting

"The Cary Eclipse is easy to use. The simple reads function quickly gives you arbitrary units measured in seconds. You can easily measure concentration of fluorescent particles based on the measurement. The system seems to drift over about a year but is easily monitored and calibrated. Great tech support."

  • Application Area:Undergraduate Laboratory

"This product is very easy to use and operate. It however breaks down a lot and looses accuracy over time. The detection limit, while rather low, is sufficient enough for the purposes of our laboratory. This product helps the students learn the basics of spectrophotometry."

"The Agilent software platform presents an intuitive approach to method development and sample designation. We have had excellent support after the sale. There were no issues with the stand alone instrument, but we had some networking issues that the service technicians were able to quickly diagnose and resolve. We are very pleased."
