Instrument Check Within the Spectroquant® System
Operational Qualification is used to assure the functionality of the instruments over the entire operating range, according to the defined procedures. In the Spectroquant® AQA concept this is equivalent with the AQA 1 mode preprogramed in the instruments. Spectroquant® colorimeters and photometers are checked by means of certified color standards and when needed by means of the Certipur® UV/VIS standards.
MilliporeSigma offers users of Spectroquant® Picco, Move and Multy colorimeters two reference standard kits for verifying the accuracy of their instrument. Both kits include sealed cuvettes containing colored test solutions and a blank, quality documentation and an instruction manual – all packed in a handy carrying case. The reference standards have been validated as specified in the accompanying quality certificate. They provide you with reassurance that your results are both accurate and reliable.
A complete set of highly stable color solutions for monitoring Spectroquant® NOVA and Pharo photometers: Spectroquant® PhotoCheck. A check in a reference spectrophotometer – which itself is monitored using primary standards (NIST standards) – confirms that this medium can be traced back to international standards. Spectroquant® PhotoCheck is thus suited for test-instrument checking purposes according to DIN EN ISO 9001 resp. 14001. All results can be subsequently transferred to a printer or a PC for documentation.
The consistent and correct functioning of your UV/VIS spectrophotometer can be monitored through Certipur® standards. Certipur® solutions can be used to check the following parameters as per Ph. Eur.:
A 16 mm round cell filled with distilled water to be used for the Zero Adjustment of Spectroquant® NOVA and Pharo photometers. It is available as replacement of the Zero Cell contained in the initial supply of each Spectroquant® NOVA and Pharo photometer. We recommend to renew the Zero Cell every two years to assure the correct Zero Adjustment of your photometer.
