New sample handling options for Biochrom Libra spectrophotometers

15 April 2011; Cambridge, UK: Newly available accessories for the Biochrom Libra range of UV/Visible spectrophotometers now add increased sample handling capabilities to the straightforward operation, scalability and value for money that lie at the heart of this flexible range of instruments. Manufactured by Biochrom (Cambridge, UK), Libra spectrophotometers and peripherals are available through a global network of local distributors, in both split beam and double beam versions.
