Product Details

Diode array spectrophotometer for working in the UV- and Vis-range

The SPECORD S 600 offers all the advantages of diode array technology for work in the UV and Vis range. The high performance diode array spectrophotometer combines the precision and comfortable handling required in the laboratory with speed, reliability and high optical performance.

The analytical advantages

  • High precision polychromator systems – permanently adjusted and fixed with no moving parts
  • Open sample compartment which accommodates all available accessories of the SPECORD S 600
  • Excellent spectral properties, fast measurement of complete spectra in less than 12 milliseconds
  • Life Science package for measurements of small sample volumes, determination of DNA/RNA (additional module)
  • Self adjusting photometric linearity
  • Automatic stray light correction
  • Easily accessible and interchangeable light sources
  • Self Check System (SCS)

The MCS (Multi Channel System) optics has proven its worth based on lasting dependability in laboratory analysis as well as process analysis.

High-precision optics

The polychromator systems, designed to work without any movable components, are the heart of the SPECORD S 600. The high-precision optics consists of an aberration-corrected grating, a mechanical slit and the diode array detector. Encased in a rugged quartz-ceramic body, it is permanently adjusted, fixed and insensitive to external influences. This design ensures extremely accurate and highly reproducible results. At the same time, SPECORD S 600 provides all the flexibility needed to solve most analytical problems. Ruggedness, thermal stability as well as their high light yield are additional advantages of this device.

High-speed spectrometer

With a minimum scan rate of 12 milliseconds the SPECORD S 600 offers extremely fast analyses.


The modular Windows software package WinASPECT is perfect for controlling the SPECORD S 600 and for the evaluation of data. Linking WinASPECT to LIMS systems as well as the user-specific export of data to external programs (e.g. Excel) are possible.

WinASPECT consists of a comprehensive basic software and numerous specific tools for individual applications:

  • Data handling such as addition, subtraction, peak search, smoothing, derivative, interactive wavelength selection, integration and normalization
  • Quantitative analysis with statistical functions
  • Formula editor for creating individual formulas
  • Kinetics tool for evaluating time-controlled reactions
  • Life Science program package for the quantification of nucleic acids and protein
  • Water analysis with preprogrammed methods
  • Validation to verify specific device parameters using certified standards
  • Macro programming for individual method development for automated measurement, evaluation and documentation processes
  • Comprehensive brewery analysis tool for determining the parameters like color, bitter substances, iodine, ethanol, sulfite
  • Tool for color determination like calculating the color coordinates using the different standard illuminant art, white/yellow index and color numbers, compliant with relevant standards
  • Tool for measuring the layer thickness of transparent coatings and foils

Conformity to FDA 21 CFR Part 11 ensures comprehensive user management, an electronic signature facility and the Audit Trail.
