Great results, but we are looking for another company that can provide better customer service support.

  • Application Area: Potency analysis

"The instrument is simple to use, however service for the instrument is not acceptable. We had a software issue and our normal service technician was out of the country for training. Agilent took two weeks to find a service technician that could assist us."

  • Application Area:Spectroscopy

"We use it with 18 cuvettes holder and it is very easy to use. The motorization are basic and reliable. It is perfect for enzymatic activities. The software is really intuitive and ADL help us to be more efficient. The price is competitive. "

  • Application Area:Hematology Reagent Testing

"The Cary 50/60 UV-Vis spectrophotometer is a remarkable work horse piece of analytical equipment in our laboratory. Although the software is dated, the flexibility of doing automated sample injection, temperature controlled experiments with mixing in or out of the box measurements using fiber-optics makes up for software envy. I can still get manuals and brand new accessories or replacements off of ebay or on LabX, and Illumina, the latest home of the Cary line. I routinely use this instrument to run novel scanning kinetics and single wavelength kinetics as well as QCing incoming reagents and compounds. I have used 3-D printers to make alterations of doors, ports and cuvette holders for specific studies. It is the best spectrophotometer I have seen for its stability, ease of use, simplicity of hardware, ability to reconfigure and retrofit, and over robustness. "

  • Lowest cost of ownership with an exceptionally long lifetime of 3 billion flashes, the lamp typically lasts 10 years, minimizing lamp replacement and instrument revalidation costs

  • No need for cuvettes the optional fiber optic probe delivers more accurate results in a fraction of the time, and with no cuvette or sipper, sample measurements are less prone to error

  • Measure precious samples with ease the highly focused beam image of the Agilent Cary 60 is perfect for measuring small volumes accurately and reproducibly. Preserve your samples by using <4 µl instead of mL

  • Exceptionally fast data collection with a scan rate of up to 24,000 nm/min, you can scan the entire wavelength range (190-1100 nm) in under 3 seconds

  • Performance enhancing accessories assures you can handle the widest variety of sample sizes and types with liquid sampling accessories including fiber optic probes and couplers, Peltier and water thermostatted single and multicell holders, temperature probes, microvolume sampling cells and rapid mix accessory for stopped flow kinetics. For solid samples, choose from solid sample holder, fiber optic reflectance probe and coupler and fixed angle specular reflectance accessories (SRA)

  • Software designed for real samples the Agilent Cary WinUV software can be tailored to suit your analytical requirements from QA/QC to research
