Wavelength Accuracy in UV/VIS Spectrophotometry

Regulatory and practical aspects of Wavelength in UV/VIS

Wavelength accuracy and repeatability are key performance aspects of UV/VIS instruments. An accurate calibration of the wavelength axis is crucial for every application relying on a spectroscopic technique and is the basis for its use as a reliable analytical tool.

This white paper discusses different theoretical and practical wavelength aspects of UV/VIS spectrophotometers in three main sections:

  • Requirements for wavelength accuracy, range and repeatability in the EU, UK, US, CN and JP Pharmacopoeias
  • Examples of different applications and ASTM standards are outlined
  • Theoretical and practical details on wavelength calibrations and adjustment procedures and standards are provided
