Explore Our Suite of Spectrometers

Save time and space with our suite of spectrometers. These innovative, easy-to-use instruments have a small footprint and collect data within seconds. In addition, they can be used in chemistry, biology, and physics classes at both the high school and college level.

Our spectrometers offer a robust set of capabilities, including

  • Full spectrum analysis of samples in seconds
  • Beer’s law analysis (e.g., absorbance vs. concentration)
  • Kinetics experiments (e.g., absorbance vs. time)
  • Various modes of data collection (absorbance, %transmittance, fluorescence, and emissions)

With our spectrometers, data can be collected and analyzed using our LabQuest 2, LabQuest 3, or free Vernier Spectral Analysis® software, which allows users to spend less time learning different interfaces and more time in the laboratory. Plus, Vernier Spectral Analysis works with Chrome™, iOS, Android™, Windows®, and macOS™ via Bluetooth® wireless technology or USB.
