"This instrument has the range of two instruments in one. If you are limited on space this is an advantage but if you have a busy lab you may want to consider two dedicated instruments. The cost with accessories is similar in either case. The instrument performs fine, it’s reliable, and easy to setup for data collection. The software is not my favorite but most processing is done with more specialized chemometric programs anyway."

"The instrument was very easy to learn as an undergraduate. The interface and the theory are both good for the undergraduate environment. "
The Cary 5000 is a high-performance UV-Vis and NIR spectrophotometer with superb photometric performance in the 175–3300 nm range. Using a PbSmart detector, the Cary 5000 extends its NIR range to 3300 nm making it a powerful tool for materials science research. The Cary WinUV software, a modular Windows-based software, makes it easy to perform powerful analysis and control a number of optional accessories.
The large sample compartment can be expanded to hold large accessories and integrating spheres for spectral and diffuse reflectance. The LockDown mechanism makes it possible to quickly change and position accessories for reproducible results.
