Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched its Evolution 200 series of next-generation UV-visible spectrophotometers featuring Insight software with CUE (Customised User Environment) scripting capabilities. The series includes three instruments and are designed for routine QA/QC analyses in the life science, food and beverage, and material science industries. The instruments offer fast data collection rates for kinetics measurements (up to 100 data points/sec).
The Thermo Scientific Evolution 200 instruments feature high quality accessories and application specific technology to meet a wide range of sampling needs. The Evolution 220 and Evolution 260 Bio feature Application Focused Beam Geometry (AFBG) technology that tailors the instrument’s optical system to specific applications for microcells, solid sampling and fibre optics.
The Evolution 260 Bio includes enhanced Thermo Scientific Insight life science software, designed to improve the user experience by simplifying method creation and results interpretation. The software’s data browser feature allows users to preview a thumbnail of results before opening the file and to sort by workbook type, file name and date for greater convenience. In addition, the workbook format helps organise data, method and accessory options by saving them all in one place. Insight software also includes CUE scripting capabilities, which enables the user to create a completely customised interface and simplified workflow.
The Evolution 200 series instruments are available in both local and computer-controlled configurations.
