This instrument allows for the Ultraviolet/Visible qualitative analysis of inorganic compounds such as metals in aqueous samples as well as for absorbing biological molecules such as the Chlorophylls. This instrument is computer-interfaced which allows the student to either operate the instrument manually or via the PC which allows analysis methods, spectra, and quantitative data to be stored and retrieved. Since its arrival in the fall of 2008, this instrument has been heavily used by numerous NRM and Chemistry classes.
