Spectrophotometric Standards Specialists

In-Spec® Color Standards

The In-Spec® color standards were specifically designed for short pathlength instruments including small-volume instruments and microplate readers but is equally adept on a traditional spectrophotometer. These types of spectrophotometers have become increasingly popular in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries due to small sample sizes.  Typical applications in these industries include RNA, DNA, protein, and enzymes analysis.  The In-Spec® Patent Blue and Amaranth Red together have peaks are located at 260nm, 280nm and 320nm.  The color standards make it possible to validate short pathlength instrumentation at these fundamental wavelengths. 

The color standards are completely customized to your needs.  The product manager will work with you to design the best standard for your current application taking into account your wavelength of choice, desired absorbance value, and pathlength. 

 

 PATENT BLUE COLOR STANDARD

ITEM# 8416

Patent Blue color standard is a popular product for RNA/DNA (nucleic acid) analysis as a result of its peak at 260nm.  A variety of concentration levels can be manufactured to fit specific needs. See the scan below to identify additional wavelengths of interest for use with other applications. 

Available in:
60mL
125mL

500mL
1L
Sealed Cuvette

 

 

AMARANTH RED COLOR STANDARD

ITEM# 8414

The In-Spec® Amaranth Red Standard was designed to complement the In-Spec® Patent Blue but can be used exclusively for a variety of other processes.  When used together, the In-Spec® Patent Blue and Amaranth Red standards cover a wider range of wavelengths that are associated with applications in pharmaceutical and biotech laboratories. Popular wavelengths for this standard are 280nm and 320nm.

PURPLE COLOR STANDARD

ITEM# 8587

The Purple Standard is the newest addition to the In-Spec product line.  As the color standards has grown in popularity, so has the need for additional wavelengths of validation.  Some common wavelengths of interest are 412, 300 & 360nm.  This reference standard is equally customizable as its Patent Blue and Amaranth Red counterparts.

The In-Spec® Nano-Kit

Item# 8476

The In-Spec® Nano-Kit was awarded for the innovation in solving the issue of validating short pathlength instruments without a toxic material.  Prior to the kit’s introduction the only option was hazardous potassium dichromate solutions.  The In-Spec Nano-Kit consists of our popular Patent Blue and Amaranth Red reference standards with standard data at 260nm, 280nm and 320nm.  The data is certified with a 1mm pathlength cuvette eliminating the conversion from the 10mm pathlength reading which is typical with many other standards.  The reference standards are guaranteed for 1 year from date of shipment unlike many competing materials that are a one-time use product.
