PerkinElmer announces new ultra-violet/visible (uv/vis) spectrophotometers


Source: PerkinElmer, Inc.

PerkinElmer Life and Analytical Sciences, a global leader in application-focused measurement and analysis solutions, today announced at PITTCON® 2008, Booth #2555, the global introduction of the LAMBDA™ XLS, a UV/Vis spectrophotometer for Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) and teaching laboratories, and the LAMBDA™ Bio, a UV/Vis spectrophotometer designed specifically for biological science laboratories.  Both the LAMBDA XLS and LAMBDA Bio are designed as low-cost, routine platforms with a number of pre-configured standard methods and the capability to add customized methods, addressing a wide range of applications.

The LAMBDA XLS, on display at the PerkinElmer booth, was designed with a focus on productivity and ease of use.  The LAMBDA XLS and Bio models include a large, clear on-board display and robust spill-resistant keypad.  With its intuitive graphical interface and wide range of local language options, users in manufacturing QA/QC, environmental, teaching and food analysis laboratories are able to perform wavelength, scanning, concentration studies and biological assays with ease.

“The LAMBDA XLS was developed in response to customer needs in today’s fast-paced, multitasking laboratory environment for instrumentation that generates results quickly and delivers a high level of stability and robustness,” said Martin Long, Vice President, Materials Characterization, PerkinElmer Life and Analytical Sciences. “It includes methods for many of the analytical challenges facing the global ecosystem.”

The LAMBDA Bio is pre-configured with standard methods for ease of access, including DNA, RNA and Oligonucleotides concentration and purity, protein assays and cell density measurements.

Both the LAMBDA XLS and LAMBDA Bio have no moving parts and feature an ultra-long lifetime Xenon lamp helping to ensure robustness, maximum uptime and low cost of ownership.  The high quality split-beam optical design provides high stability and run-to-run reproducibility for added assurance of results.

The instrumentation is available for purchase online through the PerkinElmer Web site.
