Description of Beckman Coulter DU 800 UV/Vis Spectrophotometer
For life science, academia, biotech, and pharmaceutical applications. With a Windows*-based software interface, the DU 800 easily handles complex analyses and basic administrative functions. Software is designed to simplify daily analyses, including those regulated by the FDA, and fully supports compliance with FDA Regulation 21 CFR Part 11 (Electronic Records; Electronic Signature).

The integrated user interface of the DU 800 software provides convenient and useful features such as quick access to system functions, continuous display of status and method parameters, and the ability to take quick readings or scans without exiting the current application. Spectrophotometer has many unique features including a source scheduler that can turn both the UV and visible lamp on and off independently at specified times each day; a performance validation scheduler that automatically warms up the system and then performs specified test(s) at a given date and time; and cell matching, which corrects for minor differences in multiple cells. Designed with a micro-focused beam, the DU 800 delivers the full energy of the beam to the microsample, unlike standard beams, which can lose as much as 80% of their energy when applied to a micro volume sample.

Transports are for automatic positioning and movement of samples in the unit. The standard transport is compatible with all ambient and water temperature regulated accessories. The high performance transport is compatible with all ambient and water or Peltier temperature regulated accessories. Note: The appropriate Peltier controller is required when electronic temperature control is desired.

Cuvettes for Beckman DU 800The DU 800 comes with a standard sized 12.5 x 12.5 mm cuvette holder.  In other words any 10 mm cuvette will be compatible with this spectrophotometer.  This gives you the ability to use a large macro cell (volume=3.5 mL) or a small sub-micro cell (volume=10 uL).

The most popular cuvettes for this machine are our Sub-Micro Cuvettes that are made for small sample work.  PC's 50 uL cuvette is the perfect size for
DNA, RNA, and oligo quantitation; DNA theoretical melting point; and protein concentration with common assays.  These sub-micro cells are only available in our high grade ES Quartz.  ES Quartz has superior transmission properties in comparison to standard UV Quartz.  Please see our Transmission Charts for more details.
