Thermo Scientific, Madison, Wis., introduces the Genesys family of automated, robust UV-Visible spectrophotometers, which are accessible, network-ready, and designed to meet expectations for advanced technology in a compact package. In addition, all Genesys spectrophotometers are offered with a flexible range of options.

--Genesys 50 features a simplified user interface and a high-resolution, color touchscreen. The rugged exterior, built for repetitive and heavy use environments, is designed with sloping surfaces to shed spills. It has a single-cell configuration for low sample throughput needs, with a removable, washable sampling compartment for easy clean-up.

--Genesys 150 includes the same features as the Genesys 50, and also provides automation for high-throughput options and room-light resistance, allowing lid-open operation designed for improved speed and convenience over previous generation instruments.

--Genesys 180  includes all the capabilities of the Genesys 150, and also includes an 8-cell changer for higher throughput environments, and double-beam capability for advanced experiments with a changing reference.

--BioMate 160 includes all the benefits of the Genesys150, and adds pre-programmed methods to help life science researchers obtain their answers quickly.

A new line of accessories is designed to simplify sampling and accommodate high throughput and temperature control needs. The line includes automated cell changers, a Peltier thermostatted cell holder, a disposable microcell holder, a sipper, and fiber optic probes. (Accessory options vary by model.)

“We designed the newest spectrophotometers in our Genesys portfolio to meet the evolving demands of modern laboratories,” said Phillip van de Werken, vice president and general manager, molecular spectroscopy. “Whether in a university or industrial setting, users now require instruments that are more accessible and easily networked. We’ve expanded our line so that more customers, even those with unique or complex requirements, can readily take advantage of this important analytical technology and generate reproducible results.”
