Quick Tips

1. Help is available. For a personal consultation, reach out to a Sales Engineer via chat, email or phone. Also, we offer technical information and FAQs in the Support and Technical Hub sections of our website.

2. Understand the terminology. We refer to our spectrometers as custom-configured or preconfigured. With custom-configured spectrometers, you select the grating, slit width and other optical bench accessories. With preconfigured spectrometers, we do the choosing for you, based on our experience configuring thousands of spectrometers.

3. Spectrometer specifications are readily available. Each spectrometer page comprises a description, available models, specifications, pricing and, where applicable, supporting materials including application notes, product sheets, manuals and mechanical drawings. Important note: Specifications and pricing for variations within a spectrometer family are available by clicking the Select Model Here button under the product name. For example, Ocean HDX comes in UV-Visible, Visible-NIR and Extended-range models, each with its own specifications and pricing.

4. Spectrometer price is just a start. Our modular spectrometers comprise just one part of a spectroscopy system. Prices shown for spectrometers are a starting point, as you will need to add some combination of a light source, fibers, sampling accessories and software to complete your system. Alternatively, we do offer single-price, fully realized spectrometer setups – referred to as Measurement Packages or spectrometer bundles – for common applications including absorbance, fluorescence, plasma measurement and Raman analysis. Purchase one of these packages outright or use them as a reference in understanding what components you’ll need for your custom setup.
