Maya2000 Series Spectrometers

The Maya2000 Pro spectrometers were a great choice for applications requiring high sensitivity, good UV-NIR response and wide dynamic range. Applications ranged from low light level fluorescence and Raman measurements to absorbance, transmission and emission analysis of solutions, solids and gases.

The same back-thinned 2D FFT-CCD detector at the heart of each Maya2000 Pro spectrometer, with configurable optical bench and low-noise electronics is now available in the new and improved SR6 series high resolution/high sensitivity spectrometers.

Much like the Maya2000 Pro series, the HR6 spectrometers couple with SMA 905-terminated light sources, optical fibres and sampling accessories, allowing users to optimise setups for each application. If your measurements require sub-nanometre resolution of spectral features, the HR6 is an excellent choice. For example, the HR6 demonstrates high absorbance linearity when measuring biomolecules, which allows users to accurately measure samples over a wide range of concentration levels. It also eliminates the need for sample dilution steps that run the risk of introducing errors into the measurement process, helping to ensure higher quality spectra and more accurate results.

HR6 spectrometers come with OceanDirect, a powerful, cross-platform Software Developers Kit with an Application Programming Interface. OceanDirect allows users to optimise the spectrometers performance, access critical data for analysis, and enable High Speed Averaging Mode, a function available with our newer-model spectrometers that dramatically improves spectrometer SNR performance.
