Waters Acquity TUV Detector




The ACQUITY UPLC® Tunable UV (TUV) Detector is a tunable, dual wavelength ultraviolet/visible (UV/Vis) detector that offers optimal linearity, resolution and sensitivity for UPLC®/UV separations. It features uniquely designed, patented light-guiding flow cell technology, low-noise performance (6 µAU), and support for data rates up to 80 Hz.
Discover the performance benefits of the ACQUITY UPLC TUV Detector for both routine and complex analyses in pharmaceutical, life science, environmental, agricultural, energy and petrochemical applications.
