LabSys_UV_Vis II

Macherey Nagel UV VIS II spectrophotometer

Nanocolor UV/Vis II Spectrophotometer

The UV/Vis II revolutionises laboratory work by combining high-end instrumentation with a modern smart-phone type user experience. As well as perfect integration with the Macherey Nagel NANOCOLOR tests, the UV/Vis II  has integrated color measurement and turbidity function. This means the unit can be used for a wide variety of monitoring applications within water and wastewater analysis.

The extended UV wavelength range (190-1100nm) opens up a range of analyses that most other spectrophotometers cannot measure.

  • Revolutionary user experience
  • Clever premium optics
  • Comprehensive integrated quality control
  • Advanced functions (scan, colour, turbidity)
  • Flexible interface options
  • Wide range of wavelengths
  • High degree of accuracy
