Agilent within spectrophotometry

The mission of Agilent is to deliver trusted answers and insight that advance the quality of life. Agilent was founded in 1999 as a spin-off of Hewlett-Packard’s product division “Medical Products and Instruments Group”, which traced its roots back to 1965. With more than 50 years of insight and innovation, Agilent is one of today’s leaders in life sciences, diagnostics and applied chemical markets.

Agilent offers a comprehensive range of molecular spectroscopy solutions. As the featured spectrophotometers offered by Agilent use a xenon source lamp with an extra-long lifespan of 3 billion flashes, variable costs are kept to a minimum by keeping power consumption low and avoiding expensive lamp replacements. 

 

In 2010, Agilent acquired Varian, and in 2011, Agilent launched the Cary 60 UV-Vis spectrophotometer with low cost of ownership, and remote sampling options. Subsequently, Agilent launched the Cary 300 with a working range past 5.0 absorbance units, enabling the user to measure both turbid and solid samples with the instrument.
In 2018 Agilent released the Cary 3500 that enabled users to run up to four different experiments, across eight cuvette positions at the same time.

Agilent Cary 60

The Agilent Cary 60 UV-Vis spectrophotometer is efficient, accurate, and flexible. The Agilent Cary 60 UV-Vis is well suited for use in education, research laboratories and QA/QC environments. This instrument uses a highly focused fiber optic probe that  increases the ease of use and reduces sample measurement error. The low power requirements mean that at just 38 W, the Agilent Cary 60 can be run from a 12 V mains voltage inverter, making it portable for fieldwork. Other impressive features of the instrument include its fast data collection, low cost of ownership, and the Cary WinUV software.
