UV/Vis/NIR Spectrophotomer

Description:

UV/Vis/NIR Spectrophotomer has the ability to track, to calculate and store data and is required to determine concentrations of a variety compounds contained in foods, feeds and raw materials; in enzymatic and oxidative reactions; and to identify and quantify the various pigments which affect appearance. It can also be used in the reflectance mode to determine reflection at pre-selected wavelengths and use them to calculate commonly used color terms (L*, a*, b*, delta E, chroma).
