Temperature Control for UV/VIS Spectrophotometry

Thermostat UV/VIS Analysis Right

Temperature control is an important parameter in many UV/VIS Spectroscopy applications, especially for temperature-sensitive organic samples. This guide describes why such is an important factor while illustrating commonly used applications like lipase activity, protein denaturation, melting point of DNA and Michaelis-Menten kinetics of beta-galactosidase.

This guide also provides detailed information about the available thermostating solutions for the METTLER-TOLEDO UV/VIS Excellence spectrophotometers:
CuveT – Single sample temperature control
CuvetteChanger – Multi sample temperature control
