Designed for science education
Biochrom's WPA S800+ visible spectrophotometer is compact, lightweight and ergonomically designed. It is ideal for student use in busy teaching laboratories with a large display that is easy to read. The instrument is simple to set up and use giving rapid results. It measures absorbance, % transmission and concentration as well as simple kinetics. The large display allows the user to view results in numerical value as well as a graphical view. The user can view the peak, zoom in and out all on the unit.

Up to 72 methods can be stored providing the user a quick and easy way to recall frequently used methods. These methods can also be locked using a pin protected password, as well as unlocked and deleted.

The S800+ provides the ability to label your sample for easy identification. Your sample can be measured in a test tube using the optional test tube cell holder accommodating test tubes that are 10 to 18 mm in diameter. A heated cell holder is also available for thermostatted measurements at 37°C.

Data Output
PVC (Print Via Computer) software is included with the instrument providing the user with the option to transfer data directly to a PC. Data can be easily stored on a USB memory stick and analyzed at a later date.

Low maintenance
This instrument is designed to make life easier for technical staff and to be low maintenance under demanding conditions. With no lid or moving parts, this robust instrument is east to use, clean and store. This monochromator spectrophotometer has no filters to be changed or lost.
