Test kits are available for performance verification of UV-Visible Spectrometers; a certified
UV-Visible Reference Kit and a Neutral Density Filter Kit.
The UV-Visible Reference Kit is traceable to standards certified by NIST (National Institute of
Standards and Technology). For quality assurance and traceability, the photometric and
wavelength standards are supplied with a certificate and a report detailing the relevant
results for the cells. Each cell is individually engraved with the identifying number of certificate.
This kit consists of seven sealed quartz cells containing solutions which can be used
to check the photometric accuracy, wavelength accuracy, stray light and resolution of
any UV-Visible spectrometer. It is ideal for laboratories where regular testing of
instrument performance is required by regulatory bodies and in particular,
pharmaceutical laboratories and laboratories accredited to ISO 9001.
Also available is the Neutral Density Filter Kit which contains three filters of nominal
transmittance—10%, 20% and 30% as well as a blank holder. These filters are
ideal for quality control laboratories where such standards are required for long
term evaluation of the photometric accuracy of a UV-Visible spectrometer.
Both these kits offer users the confidence that their instrument is maintained at
peak performance levels and ensures integrity of results. For more information
