Luma 40/Cary300

Temperature-controlled cuvette holder with four optical ports for the Cary 100 and Cary 300 Spectrophotometers
Product Overview

Use the Luma 40/Cary300 for absorbance measurements when your experiment requires access at 90 degrees for photochemical activation. The Luma 40/Cary300 is a versatile design that is used in the Cary 100 or Cary 300 UV/Vis Spectrophotometer. Purchase the extended temperature option and run the Luma 40/Cary300 up to 150 °C for non-aqueous samples. Add a Windowed Jacket, purge with dry gas and run the temperature down to at least -40 °C. The Luma 40 is also ideal for work in the biological range of 0 °C to 110 °C. Use it to observe absorbance spectra at precisely maintained temperatures, or for temperature ramping, to observe how absorbance changes with temperature. Operate the TC 1/Single Temperature Controller using the menu button or control via program T-App. Use an ADL program for temperature ramping with WinUV ADL Shell software.
