Spectro UV-VIS Double Beam PC
Scanning Spectrophotometer
Model UVD-2960


Spectro UV-Vis Double PC (Model UVD-2960) is a high performance UV-Vis double beam automatic scanning spectrophotometer.  It is a two (2) cell spectrophotometer with a variable bandwidth of 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 and 5.0nm.
Model UVD-2960 spectrophotometer offers high performance, ease of use and reliability, which can be used in various applications. Spectrophotometer Model UVD-2960 can be used extensively for qualitative and quantitative analysis in such fields as pharmaceutical inspection, clinical analysis,
petrochemistry laboratories, chemistry and biochemistry laboratories, DNA/RNA analysis as well as in quality control departments, i.e. environmental control, water management, food processing, and agriculture.

Spectro UV-Vis Double PC (Model UVD-2960) utilizes a new optical system design and is microcomputer controlled.  With its focused-beam design, the system provides optimal and reproducible results for small samples.  The sample beam and the reference beam are provided within the same sampling space, facilitating wider and longer scan of data providing a more detailed view of the results in an easy to use environment.  This instrument has excellent baseline stability and high resolution and permits scanning, quantitative analysis, kinetic spectrophotometric analysis,
protein, nucleic acid, DNA/RNA analysis, micro and macro measurements through PC control.  This product is capable of processing data, from analytical and spectrum testing.

Spectro UV-Vis Double PC (Model UVD-2960) has a large LCD screen which displays the menu screen and of course makes the device user friendly.  Additionally, this instrument permits the apparatus to be linked to a computer and a printer to display the photometric and spectral data on the PC monitor.
This connection is controlled by the RS232 AND USB interface, compatible with Windows XP, & and 8, using the new UVWin 6.0 UV-VIS application software.

Labomed, Inc. is certified by ISO 9001-2013, has CE Conformity and is FDA Licensed. Spectro UV-Vis Double PC (Model UVD-2960) with variable bandwidth of 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 and 5.0 nm is a high-performance, reliable, and exceptional value instrument which is the hallmark of Labomed UV-Vis spectrophotometers.

The operation manual is available in 18 available different languages.

This Spectro can be used by itself or linked to a PC and comes with a USB interface to connect to the computer.

  • Computer System is optional (NOT INCLUDED).

Software Specifications


Now all Labomed, Inc. split and double beam spectrophotometers with our newly developed software called UV-Win 6.0 can be used with Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 8. It is capable of testing more applications with its RS-232 and USB connections, and supports the data export of measured results to the PC and then, if required, a USB flash drive, when additional data storage is required. One of the new features is that it provides 3-D graphing of the spectral results.

Monoprocessor Built-in Application:

  • Photometric Measurement: Measuring transmittance or absorbance at the current wavelength together with K factor calculations.

  • Spectrum Scan: Carrying out scanning of transmittance or absorbance on the selected wavelength range together with peak-pick module.
  • Quantitative Determination: Regression of standard curves and direct determination concentration of samples.
PC Windows Application Software (RS-232 Interface) to link Spectro to computer and printer:
  • Photometric Measurement: Measuring the photometric values at 1-10 wavelengths together with mathematical calculations according to entered quotations.
  • Spectrum Scan: Producing Wavelength scans within the operating parameters on samples together with powerful data handling facilities.
  • Quantitative Determination: Determination of unknown concentration with methods of 1-3 wavelength quantitation, together with fitting of calibration curve of 1st ~ 4th order.
  • Kinetics: Recording curves of changing photometric values of samples against timecourse at the selected wavelengths together with powerful data handling facilities.
  • Output: With the Windows clipboard, the measured data and graphics can be copied to other applications software for reports.
