Industrial Chromatography

Enjoy fast acquisition UV-vis detection for both conventional and rapid separation (RS) LC applications with the flexibility to upgrade to full spectrum capability. The Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ UltiMate™ 3000 Multiple Wavelength Detector collects UV-vis data from up to eight different wavelengths between 190–800nm simultaneously at rates up to 200Hz per channel. This workhorse detector has the identical noise and drift characteristics of the Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ UltiMate™ 3000 Rapid Separation Diode Array Detector (DAD-3000RS), with an easy upgrade path to full diode array functionality.

Recommended Use

The UltiMate 3000 Multiple Wavelength Detector is recommended for laboratories employing either conventional or RSLC in routine analyses and method development. A standard version (MWD-3000) with a data rate of up to 100Hz is also available for use with Thermo™ Scientific™ Dionex™ UltiMate™ 3000 Standard LC systems.


  • Low noise (typically <±7 µAU) and drift (typically <0.5 mAU/h) offer the lowest LODs and LOQs.
  • Data collection rates of up to 200Hz allow detection and characterization of extremely narrow peaks.
  • Benefit from fast UV-vis data acquisition, even for 10 peaks separated in 10s+C1.
  • A selection of stainless steel and Thermo Scientific™ PEEK™ flow cells provide maximum flexibility for standard and biocompatible applications.
  • Front access to prealigned cells and lamps simplifies routine maintenance.
  • ID chips track lamp and cell parameters for audit trails.
  • Upgrade to full diode array functionality to accommodate your needs and your budget.

Monitor Gradients On Line

The Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ UltiMate™ 3000 PCM-3000 pH and Conductivity Monitor is an upgrade for accurate pH and conductivity on-line monitoring with the MWD-3000 Series detectors. This unit is typically used to monitor the gradient formation in salt- or pH-gradient-based ion-exchange chromatography (IEC) in biopharmaceutical analysis.

The PCM-3000 pH and Conductivity Monitor supports all modes of chromatography and provides verification of the elution conditions, the retention behavior of the sample, and the precision and repeatability of the instrumentation.
