VARIAN Atomic Absorption AA240 Spectrometer

The Varian AA140/AA240 has automatic wavelength and slit selection for novice users. The four fixed lamp positions makes lamp changes quick and reliable. Operation mode includes background correction and has a fast 2 ms response time because of its high intenstiy deuterium lamp.

VARIAN UV-Vis Cary 50 Spectrophotometer

The Cary 50 instrument has only 4 moving parts, a Xenon flash lamp and electronics contained in the PC, the Cary 50 represents a major change in UV-Vis spectroscopy. The long-life of the Xenon lamp means the lamp will rarely need to be change and because the Cary 50 gets its power from the PC, it is only on when the PC is switched on.

Spectronic 20 Spectrometers

Spec 20's have been around since the 1960s, and we have a few of those. These spectrometers are rugged, rudamentary, reasonably priced, visible spectrometers. It is because of these qualities that I am not surprised to see Spec 20s still in use in many educational and industrial labs. The 8 Spec 20s we have are all operational. One of them has undergone a solid-state upgrade, and is fitted with a digital display. We have a box of spare vacuum tubes, light bulbs, and detectors to keep them going well into the next decade.

Thermo Scientific LCQ Advantage MAX Ion trap mass LC-MS/MSSpectrometer:

The LCQ Advantage is the workhorse ion trap mass spectrometer for high productivity LC/MS/MS. The LCQ Advantage MAX spectrometer features the universal Ion Max source that allows simple tool-less switching of ionization probes. Ion Sweep Gas reduces chemical noise, while a removable ion capillary tube allows for vent free source maintenance. Reliability combined with an easy-to-use interface, makes the LCQ Advantage MAX an ideal match for routine HPLC environment. There is also a searchable MS/MS spectra library which makes for easy identification of analytes present in complex matrices.
