A Fixed Sample Platform
2014 R&D 100 Winner
Traditional spectrophotometers have a fixed sample platform and detection stage. This arrangement severely restricts the number and types of measurements that can be undertaken without laborious manual adjustments. Agilent Technologies Australia (M) Pty Ltd has introduced the Agilent Cary 7000 Universal Measurement Spectrophotometer (UMS) and Universal Measurement Accessory (UMA) to aid in this matter.
The Cary 7000 UMS is an advanced spectrophotometer for measuring the reflection and transmission properties of a material as a function of wavelength. With six measurement mode capabilities in one integrated system, it offers complete optical characterization of samples in the ultraviolet, visible and near-infrared wavelength ranges in a way not possible before. Independent control of detector and sample positions enables measurement of both transmittance and absolute reflectance of a material at any angle and polarization, without moving the sample, and all unattended due to fully automated operation. The Cary 7000 UMS puts the sample at the center of the optical detection process, with an arm-mounted detector which orbits the sample.
