Precision Scale & Balance becomes direct distributor of Thermo spectrophotometers

Updated: Oct 8

Niagara Scientific Products has been granted direct distributor status for Thermo Spectronic spectrophotometers, increasing our access to Thermo Fisher Scientific's sprawling laboratory product portfolio.


With this change, we can offer customers more competitive pricing as well as manufacturer promotions. We are already a direct distributor of other Thermo product lines, including Thermo Orion, Thermo Nalgene, and Thermo lab equipment and water purification products.


Spectrophotometers can measure in the visible region (325nm to 1100nm) or UV-visible region (190nm to 1100nm) of the light spectrum. These instruments have applications in life science, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage analysis, material science, water analysis, and education and research.


Two popular entry-level vis spectrophotometers are the Spec 200 and the Genesys 30.
