Orion AquaMate Spectrophotometers include over 260 preprogrammed methods for easy and convenient measurements using Orion AQUAfast reagent chemistries or chemistries from other key reagent manufacturers. Methods are stored on the USB memory stick, so they can be added or removed from the instrument as needed.

The 3-position holder allows flexibility in vial sizes with an adjustable holder for 13 to 25 mm round vials, a holder for 20 or 50 mm rectangular vials and a holder for 10 mm square vials. AquaMate Spectrophotometers also utilize performance verification tests to ensure wavelength accuracy and instrument functionality.
