Spectrometry is the study of light using infrared, x-ray, ultraviolet, or nuclear methods. These instruments quantify properties that are not visible to the naked human eye and are therefore useful in studying wavelength and light intensity. Spectrometers come in many different styles, including mass spectrometers, atomic absorption spectrometers, spectrophotometers, optical spectrometers, NMR spectrometers, among others. We buy spectrometers and accessories like cubes, gratings, and turrets from all major brands. These brands include Ocean Optics, Thermo Electron, AB Sciex, Thermo Finnigan, Perkin Elmer, Shimadzu, Agilent Technologies, Konica Minolta, Thermo Fisher Scientific and more.
Chromatography is a lab technique for separating mixtures. Literally translated from its Greek origins, the word chromatography means “to write with colors.” The first chromatography experiments used color to depict properties. Modern machines don’t rely on color as much as they used to, but the process is still the same. We buy chromatography equipment for different purposes, including:
HPLC Systems: High-pressure liquid chromatography systems range from all-in-one units to scalable modules for every size of the laboratory. The quality of HPLC systems depends on pressure capacity, flow rate, and control method options.
GC Systems: Gas chromatography systems are common in analytical labs, biomedical research, materials science and other fields. The quality of a GC system depends on the size of the gas injectors, configuration options, type and quality of detectors etc.
UHPLC Systems: Ultra High-Pressure Liquid Chromatography is similar to HPLC systems, with additional capacity for high-pressure applications.
We buy many different types of chromatography systems, as well as suitable accessories like pumps, columns, detectors, and more.
Lab technology comes in all sizes. Smaller instruments that measure and assess samples are collectively called analytical instruments. We buy many types of analytical instruments, including mass spectrometers, atomic absorption, elemental analyzers, ICP/ICP-MS, NMR, TOC Analyzers, and X-Ray Analyzers. We also buy analytical measurement tools like air sampling devices, calorimeters, pH meters, thermal analysis meters, titrators, turbidity meters, viscometers and rheometers.
Did you know that the first microscopes were called flea glasses? These instruments were used to study small insects and have since grown in technology and ability, allowing for the complex study of the smallest particles known to man. This lab equipment comes in many different models, including stereo microscopes, digital microscopes, compound microscopes, phase contrast microscopes, fluorescence microscopes, scanning electron microscopes, atomic force microscopes, polarizing microscopes, brightfield microscope, confocal microscope, transmission electron microscope and more. We buy all major brands like Thermo Fisher Scientific, Olympus, Zeiss, Nikon, Leica, and Meiji.
Laboratory Automation Robots
Robotics are bringing fast, reliable, and innovative technology to labs for the improvement of science. Researchers can now automate lab activities in the same ways that manufacturing facilities automate processes. The most popular laboratory automation robots assist with liquid handling and pipetting or dispensing. Some labs are also utilizing plate handling robotics, microplate samplers, and other inventions. BuySellRam.com buys all models and brands of laboratory automation robots.
How to Choose a Spectrometer
A spectrometer provides a way to measure light wavelengths and intensities to accurately identify chemical substances. The two types of spectrometry are radiation spectrometry and mass spectrometry. When shopping for spectrometry equipment, you will need to know which type you are looking for as well as a target wavelength range and resolution.
In order to study color, you will need a spectrometer that covers a wavelength range between 400 - 700 nm. And in order to study closely spaced wavelengths, you will need a spectrometer with at least a 0.5 nm resolution.
The variations in spectrometer design go far beyond these fundamentals. Once you hammer down these details, there are still many variations for size, price, speed, sensitivity, range, thermal stability, and robustness.
The overall size of the spectrometry equipment determines how portable the equipment is. The speed determines how quickly the spectrometer will analyze samples as well as how many samples can be analyzed in a set time. So understanding the volume of spectrometry your lab needs will help you make a choice that will fit your needs. And sensitivity determines how much light you will need for each sample.
What are Spectrometers Used For?
Spectrometers have many uses in modern science. Some of the most common applications include:
- Analyzing Respiratory Gasses in Medical Settings
- Studying Spectral Emissions in Outer Space
- Monitoring Dissolved Oxygen in Marine Life
- Studying the Characteristics of Proteins
Mass spectrometry is used to study the mass and concentration of molecules. It is helpful for studying elements, masses, isotopes, and other chemical structures. Mass spectrometry allows us to study particles in space without the need to travel to distant galaxies. This equipment is also used for radioactive and carbon dating to measure concentrations of toxic particles in the air.
Absorption spectrometry works by absorbing light. It works well for food and beverage analysis in food production and in pharmaceutical development. Infrared spectrometry uses infrared radiation to identify chemical substances in gas, liquid, or solid forms. X-ray spectrometry measures photon particles and is used in everything from astronomy to archeology. Ultraviolet spectrometry is mostly used in chemistry to study chemical bonds. There are many more types of spectrometry that researchers use to study the world around us, making spectrometry technology an in-demand product.
