Analytical Instrumentation Chemistry Education
Demonstrate chemistry principals with real-world instruments geared for hands-on learning

Classroom ready and rugged. Teach chemistry with real-world analytical instrumentation. We offer spectrometers, rheometers and spectrophotometers found in analytical labs around the world. Sized for tabletops, easy to store and transport, and equipped with friendly software and user interfaces, these tools help your students understand the foundations of analytical chemistry and learn skills applicable to technical careers and advanced studies.

  • FTIR: Determine functional groups, predict identity through library searches, perform quantitative measurements, and assess physical and chemical properties of many materials.
  • NMR: Enhance organic chemistry, reaction rates, isomeric identification, kinetics, quantum spin, percent composition, and hydrogen bonding.
  • UV-Visible: Measure DNA, RNA, and protein concentrations, follow enzyme kinetics to calculate rate constants, biochemical and biological colorimetric assays, review Beer’s Law, understand scanning and fixed wavelength measurements.
  • Rheology: Study the behavior of liquids and semi-solid materials, including absolute viscosity, thixotropic behavior and yield point.
