Thermo Scientific Orion AquaMate 7100 & 8100 Spectrophotometers

Thermo Scientific Orion AquaMate 7100 & 8100 Spectrophotometers are designed to meet the specific needs of water and waste water analysis laboratories. These spectrophotometers include over 260 preprogrammed methods for easy and convenient measurements using Thermo Scientific Orion AQUAfast, Merck, and CHEMetrics reagents.

Choose from two models to best fit your water analysis needs:

The Orion AquaMate 7100 Visible Spectrophotometer measures a range from 325 to 1100 nm wavelengths for water and waste water testing. The 5.0 nm spectra bandwidth is ideal for most routine concentration measurements. The 7100 Visible Spectrophotometer also features a small footprint & lightweight design with a tungsten-halogen lamp with 1,000 hours of light testing.

The Orion AquaMate 8100 UV-Visible Spectrophotometer measures a range from 190 to 1100 nm wavelengths for the most extensive measurement options. A 2.0 nm spectral bandwidth provides optimal system resolution, permitting more light energy to reach the sample, thus resulting in lower detection limits and superior signal-to-noise performance. This 8100 UV-Visible Spectrophotometer features dual-beam optical geometry for more accurate results, high-intensity XENON lamp, and fast wavelength scanning.

Volatile organic acids and zinc can be measured using Orion AQUAfast, Merk, and CHEMetrics reagents and assorted vial sizes. The instruments allow a one-point adjustment on any preprogrammed method to correct for variations in batch reagent chemistries. Preprogrammed methods can also be adapted for new chemistries or operator can create their own custom methods.

To aid in loading, transferring and storing methods and data, Orion AquaMate Spectrophotometers feature three USB connection ports. The ports may be used with a USB memory stick, to transfer data directly to a computer, or to connect to an external printer for printing hard copies of data produced by the spectrophotometer.

Orion AquaMate 7100 Visible and 8100 UV-Visible Spectrophotometers include performance verification tests that ensure wavelength accuracy and instrument functionality. In accordance with GLP and GMP, each verification report gives the time, date, and instrument serial number. The built-in wavelength accuracy test is compatible with either the internal lamp or external calibrated standards.

The instruments allow the ultimate flexibility in vials sizes and accommodate a wide range of round, square, and rectangle vials with three vial holder options. Each vial holder turret can be easily installed and replaced in the instrument sample compartment. Magnetically retained, easy to clean vial holds are available for 12 to 25 mm round, 10 mm square, and 20 – 100 mm rectangular vials. An adjustable round vial holder is also included/available that accommodates 13 to 24 mm round vials.
