Ocean Optics has introduced the ecoVis, a compact, low-voltage light source (400 to 2,500 nm) with a built-in cuvette holder suitable for basic laboratory measurements. The light source has a rugged solid alloy housing that helps to dissipate heat and in-line fiber ports for absorbance and fluorescence measurements.
The ecoVis is small—just 95 mm by 50 mm, and weighs 265 g—making it suitable for laboratories where space is at a premium. The light source has an integrated cuvette holder with 1-cm pathlength and a versatile chromium-plated reflective insert that increase the output for fluorescence, holds the cuvette securely in place, and can be adjusted through 90 degrees to block the light path for dark measurements.
