UV-VIS is a general purpose spectrophotometer that provides fast scanning, excellent sensitivity, exceptional ruggedness and reliability, routine QA/QC, research and method development works in laboratory. Samples absorb UV/VIS light. The wavelength of light that is absorbed is characteristic of the molecule or ion in the sample. The intensity of the light absorbed is proportional to the amount of analyte present. Liquid samples are used.
