UV / Visible Spectrometer (Varian Cary 100 Bio)

The Facility maintains a Varian Cary 100 Bio UV / Visible Spectrometer for standard data collection on biological samples. The dual-beam Czerny-Turner instrument has a wavelength range of 190 – 900 nm with a spectral bandwidth of 0.2 nm. It features a working range past 3.5 absorbance units, so dilution of samples to bring them into the instrument range is not necessary. This instrument is also equipped with a temperature controlled 6 x 6 multicell holder complete with built in stirring capabilities, allowing precise thermal control from -10° to 100° C.
