Preprogrammed test methods

Orion AquaMate 7100 Visible and 8100 UV-Visible

Spectrophotometers include over 260 preprogrammed methods for easy and convenient measurements using Thermo Scientific™ Orion™ AQUAfast™, Merck, and CHEMetrics reagents.

The preprogrammed test methods allow simple, accurate analysis of acid capacity, alkalinity, aluminum, ammonia, ammonium, antimony, AOX, arsenic, BOD, boron, bromine, cadmium, calcium, chloride, chlorine, chlorine dioxide, chromate, chromium, COD, color, copper, cyanide, cyanuric acid, DEHA, detergents, dissolved oxygen, fluoride, formaldehyde, gold, hardness, hydrazine,hydrogen peroxide, iodine, iron, lead, magnesium, manganese, mercury, molybdate, molybdenum,

monochloramine, nickel, nitrate, nitrite, nitrogen, oxygen, oxygen scavengers, ozone, palladium, pH, phenol, phosphate, platinum, potassium, silica, silver, sodium,

sulfate, sulfide, sulfite, surfactants, suspended solids, tin, TOC.

Volatile organic acids and zinc can also be measured using Orion AQUAfast, Merk, and CHEMetrics reagents and assorted vial sizes. The instruments allow a one point

adjustment on any preprogrammed method to correct for variations in batch reagent chemistries. Preprogrammed methods can also be adapted for new chemistries or operators can create their own custom methods. 

All preprogrammed methods are preloaded on the included USB memory stick to allow operators to add or remove methods as desired. Custom methods using the standard curve function can be uploaded through the USB, making it possible for most colorimetric reagents to be used. Making it possible for most colorimetric reagents to be used. Visit thermofisher.com/aquamateuvvis for the most current

list of US EPA compliant reagent chemistry methods. To aid in loading, transfering and storing methods and data, Orion AquaMate Spectrophotometers feature three

USB connection ports. The ports may be used with a USB memory stick, to transfer data directly to a computer, or to connect to an external printer for printing hard copies of data produced by the spectrophotometer. 


Performance verification testing

Orion AquaMate 7100 Visible and 8100 UV-Visible Spectrophotometers include performance verification tests that ensure wavelength accuracy and instrument

functionality. In accordance with GLP and GMP, each verification report gives the time, date and instrument serial number. The built-in wavelength accuracy test

is compatible with either the internal lamp or external calibrated standards.


Variety of vial holder options

The instruments allow the ultimate flexibility in vial sizes and accommodate a wide range of round, square and rectangular vials with three vial holder options. Each vial

holder turret can be easily installed and replaced in the instrument sample compartment.

Magnetically retained, easy to clean vial holders are available for 12 to 25 mm round, 10 mm square and 20 to 100 mm rectangular vials. An adjustable round vial holder is also included/available that accommodates 13 to 24 mm

round vials.


Choice of two models for your water analysis needs

The Orion AquaMate 7100 Visible Spectrophotometer measures a range from 325 to 1100 nm wavelengths for water and wastewater testing. The 5.0 nm spectral

bandwidth is ideal for most routine concentration measurements. 


Additional benefits of the Orion AquaMate 7100 Visible

Spectrophotometer include:

  • Cost-effective visible only measurements
  • Small footprint and lightweight design
  • The tungsten-halogen lamp offers 1,000 hours of light testing.
  • Similar performance features as the Orion Aquamate

8100 UV-Visible Spectrophotometer

The Orion AquaMate 8100 UV-Visible Spectrophotometer measures a range from 190 to 1100 nm wavelengths for the most extensive measurement options.

Additional benefits of the Orion AquaMate 8100 UV-Visible Spectrophotometer include:

  • Dual-beam optical geometry for more accurate measurements
  • High-intensity XENON Lamp
  • Flexible bandwidth
  • Fast wavelength scanning


Dual-beam optics for more accurate measurements

The XENON flash lamp provides very intense light, allowing a beam splitter to extract and measure a small portion of light to an internal reference detector without a loss of performance in sample measurement. This provides

simultaneous measurement of the sample with real-time reference beam correction for each flash of the lamp. 


The dual beam optical configuration ensures each measurement is as accurate as possible with reference beam correction on each data point, no drift over long

measurements and no peak shift with scan speed changes. The optical geometry offers enhanced data quality throughout the entire UV to near IR region of the

spectrum. The XENON flash lamp fires pulses of light only when taking a measurement


XENON flash lamp for increased lifespan

The XENON lamp in the Orion AquaMate 8100 UV-Visible Spectrophotometer provides excellent performance over the entire wavelength range of 190 to 1100 nm. It also provides intense light in the UV region of the spectrum adding sensitivity for life science, environmental and organic chemistry applications.

The XENON lamp typically provides three to five years of maintenance-free performance*, since it runs only when taking a measurement. This saves an average of $2,400 in maintenance costs** over five years compared with a

traditional light instrument. The XENON flash lamp requires no warm-up for instant

measurements. The lamp helps prevent damage to sensitive samples by flashing, versus continuous exposure to intense UV light and helps ensure sample temperature stability, since it does not change the compartment temperature. 


Flexible nm bandwidth

The Orion AquaMate 8100 UV-Visible Spectrophotometer

balances regulatory compliance with sensitivity. A 1.8 nm spectral bandwidth provides optimal system resolution, permitting more light energy to reach the sample, thus resulting in lower detection limits and superior signal-tonoise performance.


Fast wavelength scanning

The Orion AquaMate 8100 UV-Visible Spectrophotometer is equipped with enhanced wavelength scanning technology that acquires high quality spectral data quickly. The instrument accelerates through wavelength scans at speeds up to 1600 nm/min. The exceptionally large photometric range allows accurate measurements of small absorbance changes even when using highly absorbing blank samples. Scan data can be analyzed to determine peak and valley wavelength. The scan data can also be

saved to the USB memory stick.
