UV-VIS Spectrophotometer

with RFID Technology

The industry’s most advanced lab spectrophotometer.

The DR6000™ is the industry’s most advanced lab spectrophotometer. It offers high-speed wavelength scanning across the UV and Visible Spectrum, and comes with over 250 pre-programmed methods including the most common testing methods used today. With optional accessories allowing for high-volume testing via a carousel sample changer, and increased accuracy with a sample delivery system that eliminates optical difference errors, this instrument ensures you are ready to handle your wide-ranging water testing needs. Combining the DR6000 with Hach’s patented TNTplus™ reagent vials, you gain additional accuracy with guided step-by-step testing procedures, while making scratched, flawed or dirty glassware a non-issue due to averaging 10 readings and discarding outliers. The instrument also utilizes RFID technology, allowing it to let you know automatically if your TNTplus reagents have expired, while detecting coefficient factors to avoid errors which can occur in lot-to-lot variations in the chemistries. Partnering all of these features with an integrated QA software package allows for scheduling, documenting and interpreting your needed quality measurements. 


Accessories for High Volume and High Accuracy Testing Needs

A carousel sample changer allows up to seven sequential measurements. The Sipper Module, an instrument-controlled sample delivery system, increases precision by constant optical characteristics.


Advanced Quality Assurance at Your Fingertips

The DR 6000 comes with integrated QA software for scheduling, documenting and interpreting all of your needed quality measurements.


Guided Procedures and Elimination of False Readings

The DR 6000, when used with TNTplus® reagent vials, provides the accurate results you need by guiding you step-by-step through your testing procedures. With TNTplus, the instrument averages 10 readings and eliminates outliers, making scratched, flawed or dirty glassware a non-issue.


Automatically Avoids Errors

RFID* technology automatically updates the program calibration factors when you place a TNTplus reagent box near the DR 6000. The instrument identifies chemistry expiration dates via a barcode on the vials, and detects chemistry coefficient factors to avoid errors that can occur in lot-to-lot variations in the chemistry. *RFID technology currently available only in US, Anguilla, American Samoa, Australia, Bolivia, Canada, Cayman Islands, Columbia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Federated States of Micronesia, Guam, Guatemala, Marshall Islands, New Zealand, Northern Mariana Islands, Palau, Panama, Puerto Rico, and US Virgin Islands.
