Our Mini-Chrom monochromators are a family of compact, in-line Fastie Ebert monochromators with a 74mm focal length, ideally suited for general spectroscopy use as well as OEM system integration. Use the table below to compare the four models.
With over 30,000 monochromators sold, the Mini-Chrom has been proven for reliable precision, and superior service life when integrated within sophisticated analytical and biomedical instrumentation such as clinical chemistry analyzers, HPLC detectors, industrial process analyzers, UV-VIS-NIR spectrophotometers and when used within laboratory research applications.
Throughput, resolution, stray light and power handling are comparable to many larger, more expensive monochromators. The Mini-Chrom monochromator is specifically designed to minimize astigmatic aberrations, enhancing instrument resolution. Each unit includes a set of fixed slits which can be easily changed to wider or narrower slits to optimize throughput or resolution for a particular application.
A variety of peripheral equipment is available that will increase the versatility of the Mini-Chrom in a laboratory environment, including a stepping motor controller and tungsten halogen lamp module with power supply.
