A new 6-point calibration method is added to improve wavelength accuracy on the UV-Vis instruments (GENESYS 50, GENESYS 160, GENESYS 160 and GENESYS 180). If the UV-Vis instrument is performing within the wavelength accuracy specification this update is not required.

This improvement requires a proprietary calibration technique that involves updating the firmware on instrument. Customers in the U.S. and Canada can request this service at our factory in Madison, Wisconsin by sending an email to us.depot-repair@thermofisher.com. Customers outside of the U.S. and Canada should contact their local Thermo Scientific distributor to request this service.
