Go Direct® UV-VIS Spectrophotometer

$2,499.00

The Go Direct® UV-VIS Spectrophotometer connects to your device via Bluetooth® wireless technology or USB to generate full spectra, Beer’s law data, and kinetic traces of ultraviolet and visible-absorbing samples (such as aspirin, DNA, proteins, and NADH).

ORDER CODE: GDX-SPEC-UV Categories ,

Simplify the measurement of absorbance spectra of chemical and biochemical compounds with the Go Direct UV-VIS Spectrophotometer. This sensor connects to your device via Bluetooth® wireless technology or USB, making it easy to collect accurate measurements and generate full spectra, Beer’s law data, and kinetic traces of ultraviolet and visible-absorbing samples (such as aspirin, DNA, proteins, and NADH). Compatible with LabQuest® 2, LabQuest 3, Vernier Spectral Analysis®, and Logger Pro® 3, the Go Direct UV-VIS Spectrophotometer promotes student engagement through data visualization and analysis. To conduct emission spectra experiments, simply attach the Vernier Spectrophotometer Optical Fiber.
