The double beam optics and two detectors measure the sample and reference simultaneously for optimum measurement accuracy and stability over long periods of time. The 6850 has a variable spectral bandwidth of 0.5nm, 1nm, 2nm, 4nm and 5nm, giving flexibility whilst ensuring compliance to European Pharmacopeia requirements. The narrow spectral bandwidth also ensures improved peak resolution.

An integrated user interface provides full control of the instrument so there is no need to buy a PC to run the spectrophotometer. However, Jenway Prism PC control software is included as standard, introducing functionality such as greater data storage, additional post-measurement tools and pre-loaded DNA and protein methods.

Designed for quality control, research and routine applications in life science, materials science and the pharmaceutical industry, the Jenway 6850 spectrophotometer offers multiple measurement modes for photometrics, concentration, multi-wavelength, spectrum scanning, kinetics, quantitation, DNA/RNA and protein analysis. An extensive range of accessories is also available.
