PRIM light and PRIM advanced spectrophotometers combine high performance with an simple and intuitive operation.
Compact and light, these new spectrophotometers are ideal for routine operation for education or in the laboratory.

PRIM Light
Includes standard spectrophotometric applications in absorbance, transmittance and single-standard concentration measurement. Multi language display and automatic standby

PRIM Advanced
Includes all of the above plus - multi-standards concentration 1-8 standards, kinetics, multi-wavelengths and spectrum scanning and peak and valley detection.


• Absorbance / % Transmittance : Automatic wavelength selection from 330 to 900 nm, in steps of 1 nm, with the Absorbance value and the % of Transmittance monitored in real time.
• Concentration calculation : Concentration measurement of unknown samples. Spectrophotometer calibration
using factor or standards (up to 8) of known concentration.
• Kinetics : Analysis of Absorbance variation as a function of time. Program to include lag time, reaction time.
Automatic calculation of Absorbance variation during each interval or for the total time programmed.
• Spectrum scan* : A curve of Absorbance values as a function of wavelength, with detection of Absorbance
maxima and minima. User-definable scan mode using the full or partial visible range: 330 to 900 nm, per 1nm
steps, with automatic recording of the base line.
• Multi-wavelengths mode : Measure of ratio and difference of Absorbances at 2 wavelengths. Simultaneous
display of calculated results as well as individual Absorbance values at each wavelength

• Education : Suitable for all levels from senior high school to university. Resident
measuring modes make it easy to teach the Beer-Lambert law : concentration, kinetics, colorimetry or spectrum
• Laboratory : Thanks to its wide choice of analytical modes, PRIM spectrophotometers can be used for most routine
spectrophotometric laboratory applications.
• Industry : Its small size and ruggedness make PRIM an ideal spectrophotometer for industrial surroundings.
Employed for Quality Control, it can easily be placed at the delivery point as well as at all stages of the manufacturing
• Environment : Delivered standard with Absorbance and Concentration measuring modes, the PRIM cell-holder
can be replaced with the optional 16 mm-tube holder to run classical COD tests. For weak Absorbance samples,
PRIM 50 mm, having a standard 50 mm cell-holder, offers enhanced sensitivity.
• Clinical Biology : PRIM 500, a special version equipped with auto-aspiration system, micro flow-cell, thermocontrolled
cell-holder (37°C) is suitable for biochemical assays. (Separate brochure available upon request.)
• Accessories : A complete range of accessories : printer, tube-holder, auto-aspiration system, manual aspiration
system, thermo-cuvette-holder are available as options.
