Perkin Elmer Lambda 40 UV/VIS Spectrometer

Perkin Elmer Lambda 40 UV/VIS Spectrometer

This Perkin Elmer Lambda 40 UV/VIS Spectrometer is used, and in excellent condition. Motorized 8-Position Water-Thermostatted Standard Cell Holder included. The cell holder has 8-positions on both the Reference and Sample beams, and has a cable that plugs into the Accessory Port of the Lambda 40. The manual is not included, although it is relatively intuitive to operate for someone familiar with spectrometer operations. There are interface connections for remote operation (Serial Port and Parallel Port), but there is no software or cables included for computer interfacing. This unit is in excellent operating condition and passes all self tests. It has been checked for wavelength and photometric accuracy. Both lamps are in excellent condition, and the deuterium shows about 600hrs on its 2000 hour use-indicator strip.
