Versa 20×2/Cary5000

Versatile dual temperature control for the Cary 4000, 5000, 6000i and 7000 UV-Vis-NIR Spectrophotometers
Product Overview

The Versa 20×2/Cary5000 combines two Versa 20 cuvette holders for use in the dual-beam Cary 4000, 5000, or 6000i UV-Vis-NIR Spectrophotometers. It provides independent Peltier temperature control for both the sample and reference cuvettes. Use the Versa 20/Cary5000 in the biological range of 0 °C to 105 °C, or non-aqueous samples, purchase the extended temperature option and run the Versa 20×2/Cary5000 up to 150 °C. Add a Windowed Jacket, purge with dry gas and run the temperature to well below zero. If necessary, run the sample and reference cuvettes at different temperatures. The mounted Versa 20/Cary5000 replaces both the sample and reference cuvette holders normally provided with the spectrophotometer. Two options are available for bringing utilities (tubes and wires) out of the sample compartment. For laboratories that have the Agilent extended “nose” assembly, we can provide a simple access plate that mounts below the nose. Otherwise, you may purchase our PANEL/5000 option, which permits connections of the front of the spectrophotometer.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.
