Spectra/Chrom® Model 280 UV Detector

The Model 280 UV Detector CE Mark The Spectra/Chrom Model 280 UV detector is a fixed wavelength flow-through spectrophotometer specifically engineered for use in chromatography. It features a direct reading digital output and a dual beam optical system that allows the automatic subtraction of a solvent background even in the presence of a rapidly changing gradient.

The Spectra/Chrom Model 280 UV Monitor comes complete with filters for operation at 254 and 280 nm and a dual 5 mm pathlength flow cell.

The Model 280 UV detector may be ordered as part number 142600 ($3847.00) for 115 V (US & Canada) use or as part number 142602 ($3999.00) for 230 V (European) use.
