UV-Vis Spectroscopy

Instrument: Analytik Jena; Shimadzu UV1800


UV-vis spectroscopy measures the ability of a sample to absorb electromagnetic radiation in the visible-ultraviolet range to both confirm the presence of, and to quantify, coloured compounds in solution. Minimal sample preparation is required and the technique is a quick and reliable method to analyse coloured solutions.

Absorbance of UV light is also one of the preferred methods for quantifying both DNA and protein.
