Fast, accurate

Go from samples to answers quickly and easily. Thermo Scientific UV-Vis and Vis instruments are designed to streamline measurements with consistent, high-quality results, time after time. Exchange samples with ease in large, accessible sample compartments.


Built on the foundation of over 60 years of proven spectroscopy experience, the next-generation Thermo Scientific UV-Vis and Vis spectrophotometers combine exceptional performance with contemporary technology and design.


Each instrument features easy-to-use, easy-to-learn onboard software or full-featured control and analysis software that enables you to start taking measurements immediately. 


Choose what’s right for you—span just the visible colorimetric portion (340-780 nm) or across the full UV-Vis spectrum (190-1100 nm). Select among single beam, dual beam, or double beam optics, fixed or variable pathlength, and basic or advanced capabilities. Then expand its versatility with all the accessories you need.
