The Aquanova spectrophotometer and test kits offer the simplest and most convenient laboratory system for measuring a broad range of parameters in water, wastewater, effluent and environmental samples. Test methods are identified by a meaningful name that can be up to 20 alphanumeric characters long - so there is no need to remember codes or refer to look up tables. Any one of the 300 test methods that can be stored is from memory by browsing selected alphabetic files. A frequently used test is quickly recalled from the Dynamic Journal that always has the last 8 methods used available.
The Test Manager is dedicated to making it easy to select a test, edit an existing test, create a new test or delete un-wanted tests, helping the user through the procedures in a step-by-step fashion.
The parameters stored for any selected test can be quickly viewed to confirm the current settings, while the Instrument Manager includes a lock against any changes to these settings without the entry of a security code. The user interface can also be displayed in English, French, German, Italian or Spanish.
All functions on the Aquanova can be replicated on the PC software supplied. This further enhances the flexibility and functionality of the system by enabling tests to be down loaded, using simple drag and drop functions, from a CD ROM or the Bibby Scientific website. Tests and results can also be stored on the PC enabling an almost limitless library of test files and result data to be created. Using the familiar copy and paste techniques the results can be entered into spreadsheets for analysis and presentation.
Aquanova is supplied pre-loaded with all the Bibby Scientific Test Kit methods, but it compatible with almost all commercially available water and evironmental test kits. Methods for these can be created on the instrument or a connected PC using the kit manufacturers data (the Test Manager will guide you through the procedure) or where available, methods for alternative kits may be supplied on optional CD ROMs.
Although dedicated to water and environmental analysis Aquanova can still be used as a standard single beam visible spectrophotometer by selecting the Photometrics menu option. Absorbance, %T and wavelength are displayed giving added functionality and flexibility. This will be especially useful in method development, as well as in areas where teaching and training is also carried out.
A multi-purpose sample holder that will accept 10mm path length cuvettes as well as 16mm and 24mm diameter sample tubes, is fitted to Aquanova. Where longer path lengths are required the optional 10 to 100mm path length cuvette holder can be fitted. A range of alternative sample holders, cuvettes and tubes are available to enhance the capabilities of Aquanova.
