Ocean Insight within spectrophotometry

Ocean Insight’s approach to customer needs is characterized by the abbreviation ASK, standing for Applied Spectral Knowledge – a combination of innovative spectroscopy hardware, software and on-demand data delivery. Through disciplines including systems- and software development, the company has assembled the capacity to provide intensive customer collaboration on challenges across many industries.

The company was founded in the late 80’s, as Ocean Optics, and received a federal grant for a marine pH sensor. As a part of their project, the team needed a compact spectrophotometer to fit into a small, underwater housing. As the team found out that none existed, they decided to make their own, and in 1992, the company was able to release the world’s first miniature spectrophotometer. Since then, Ocean Insight has evolved its technology, expanded its offering, and obtained vital partners, which is why Ocean Insight has such a broad manufacturing and supply network today.

Ocean Insight has discovered, refined and delivered new approaches for more than 25 years in order to solve problems with spectroscopy and imaging technologies. Ocean Insight’s FLAME-CHEM spectrometer is a small footprint instrument with performance and flexibility.

In addition, the instrument is compatible with cphnano’s NanoCuvette™ when used in combination with our SpectroShell

  • Strong experience within spectroscopy

    Ocean Insight has discovered, refined and delivered new approaches for more than 25 years in order to solve problems with spectroscopy and imaging technologies.

  • Flexible and performance instruments

Ocean Insight Flame Spectropmeter

This spectrophotometer is NanoCuvette™ compatible.

Ocean Insight’s FLAME-CHEM spectrometers are fully integrated systems, while each setup comprises a Flame spectrophotometer, a direct-attach light source and a cuvette holder for 1 cm pathlength cuvettes. Users can also purchase the OceanView spectroscopy software in order to complete the system. Ocean Insight enables the users to choose between UV-Vis and Vis-NIR models. FLAME CHEM UV-VIS features wavelength range options of 200-850 nm, while FLAME CHEM UV-NIR features wavelength range options of 350-1000 nm. Ocean Insight’s FLAME-CHEM spectrometers can be used in order to measure absorbance and transmission of liquid samples in cuvettes. The Flame spectrophotometer comes in a compact design, making it a small footprint instrument that can help users with simplifying operation and saving bench space. The amazing features of the Ocean Insight’s FLAME-CHEM spectrometers make the instrument well suited for teaching labs and research environments, where users seek instruments with performance and flexibility.
