SPECTRONIC 200 Spectrophotometer for UV-Vis measurements

Support your teaching goals. The Thermo Scientific SPECTRONIC 200 Spectrophotometer is the standard for routine measurements in instructional and analytical laboratories. Designed for simplicity and speed, the SPECTRONIC 200 is a rugged, simple-to-use spectrophotometer that provides quick, easy measurements and years of trouble-free performance. On-board software, controlled from an intuitive navigation pad using a full-color screen, delivers capabilities beyond expectations.

Educational spectrophotometer

The SPECTRONIC 200 Educator model* provides the greatest value for teaching labs, with much of the same hardware and software features as the standard model at a more affordable price. What’s different? The Educator model does not include the programable analyzer, offers local language support only in English, Spanish, and Thai, and truncates data to two decimal places rather than three.


* Note that the SPECTRONIC 200 Educator is available to distributors in the United States and Canada only.
