Spectrophotometers Aid the Chemical Industry

Spectroscopy is a quick and easy way to evaluate the chemical makeup of solutions and samples. Chemicals are used in many products such as pharmaceuticals, personal care items, food, and more. Just like other ingredients, they must be evaluated for quality as part of the production process.

Using color, a spectrophotometer can measure standard chemical/pharmaceutical indices such as Gardner, Hazen/APHA, Iodine Color Number, European Pharmacopoeia and US Pharmacopeia. With the ability to identify this information in a substance, chemists can determine the safety of using certain chemicals and how they may interact with each other. .
