Gain direct control of your UV-Vis instrument without any hassle

SpectroLink™ replaces traditional thermo printers, allowing for quick and efficient digital collection of results.

  • Is it relevant for me?
    You work with a UV-Vis spectrophotometer and spend significant time on lab measurements, teaching, or data analysis.
  • What are relevant topics?
    Cumbersome data handling, analysis, and sharing.
  • Where is this applicable?
    Academia, life sciences, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, food, materials science, academic research.

Typical challenges in the lab for UV-Vis spectroscopy

  • Thermal printer based data management of spectral data and curves on paper, which is hard to share and limits the flexibility of extracting more information out of data through SpectroWorks™ or through a custom UV-Vis analysis solutions
  • Platform (PC/MacOS/Linux) dependent software for controlling your UV-Vis spectrophotometer, which can be limited in functionality, precision and sometimes prone to errors that are never fixed due its physical nature of installation method (USB, CDs, etc.).
  • Productive hours spent on managing data from removable media to platform dependent software, where the data is usually not available in the cloud for sharing immediately.

SpectroLink™ cuts away these obstacles for a far more efficient, share friendly and data safe workflow.

Why investigate this upgrade to your lab?

  • Efficient and simplified data management and analysis.
  • Real-time instrument control, data upload, and sharing.
  • SpectroLink™ is consistently enhanced through automatic software updates that augment its features, safety, and security, as well as its compatibility with various spectrophotometers.

Customer examples for use in the lab

  • Customers who uses one or more UV-Vis spectrophotometers (even of different brands) in the same lab and wants one safe and secure software solution for all of them.
  • Customers who wants to save time by upgrading from printing out results using a thermo printer to an end-to-end digital workflow. 
  • Customers who wants to efficiently control a fleet of UV-Vis instruments and save same time on installation, maintenance, and keeping software up to date on multiple computers.

What are the key features?

  • Plug-and-play control of existing spectrophotometers without software installation
  • Real-time instrument control, data upload, and sharing.
  • Over-the-air (OTA) automatic software updates included in purchase of SpectroLink™

What is the value for me with this solution?

Efficient and simplified instrument control, data management and analysis, saving time and increasing productivity, allowing researchers and lab users to focus on their core work. Simplifies data collection, analysis, and sharing, making it easier to collaborate with colleagues and get the most out of measurements.
