The SP-300 Series from Cole Parmer are compact, easy to use spectrophotometers. They are a step up from the 200 Series, with the same simple operation but a reduced bandwidth. They are reliable entry level UV/Vis and Vis spectrophotometers, suitable for a wide range of applications. These instruments have measurement modes for absorbance, percent transmittance and concentration. They are small and lightweight, making them easy to store or move to different locations within the laboratory. These instruments are easy to navigate, using push buttons to move around the simple user interface. As a result, they are ideal for basic photometric applications in schools and colleges, as well as in quality control laboratories.

The instruments have been specifically designed to accept a wide range of accessories, including an adjustable cuvette holder which can hold cuvettes between 10 and 100 mm, a test tube holder for test tubes with diameters between 16 and 24 mm, and a micro-cuvette holder with a reduced aperture for small sample volumes. For multiple samples, there is also a four-position rotary cuvette holder. If you would like to include accessories with your order, or discuss the options available to you, please call the team on 01257 270433.
