Improved Lab Efficiency with the Cary 60 UV-Vis and the 18-Cell Changer Accessory

Cary 60 UV-Vis with 18-Cell Changer Accessory

Modern labs are constantly looking for opportunities to improve their efficiency and reduce the workload of their staff. Automating repetitive tasks can help to maximize instrument usage and free up operators to perform other tasks, improving overall efficiency.

The Cary 60 UV-Vis with an 18-cell changer can help to increase sample throughput and reduce user interaction. This recent technical overview compares a Cary 60 UV-Vis workflow using the 18-cell changer accessory versus a single-cell holder accessory to evaluate differences in terms of analysis time, data quality, user interaction, ease of use, and efficiency.

The standard cell requires the technician to place, measure, and remove the cell for every new sample. This creates a repetitive cycle that requires the undivided attention of the technician. With the set-and-forget approach that the 18-cell changer enables, the technician becomes uninhibited to apply their trade to other tasks, creating an efficient linear workflow.

Compared to using a single-cell holder, the 18-cell changer was 27% faster and enabled a superior workflow.

The Cary 60 UV-Vis spectrophotometer with the 18-cell changer forms an ideal solution for the efficient analysis of large numbers of samples:

  • Shorter analysis time with equal data quality (compared to the use of a single cell)
  • Simple workflow supported by innovative Cary WinUV software with e.g., prompted loading guide
  • Automated measurement of up to 18 samples—minimal requirement for user interaction
  • Higher throughput, less user interaction, reduced operator cost, fewer room for errors
