3 types of Algae: Comparison with Amino DW-2
Conventional 1 cm² cuvette-based Diode Array
(the popular HP 8452)
Dual Wavelength 1 cm² cuvette-based (Aminco DW-2 under OLIS computer control)
New ICAM-based UV/Vis (OLIS CLARiTY)
3 Spectrophotometers looking at SE-107 Algae Suspension:
The HP 8452 Diode Array was eliminated from further consideration due to its inability to contend with light scatter which, therefore, renders it incapable of collecting an accurate spectrum of samples with any level of turbidity.
