“Our Evolution 201 UV-Vis (Insight Software) has the resolution and spectral capabilities we require, it is easy to use (and therefore easy to train new analysts to use), the software has the 21 CFR Part 11 functionality we need being regulated by the FDA.”

“We are a contract testing laboratory, so there is no such thing as a routine day here. The analysts select their day’s samples and work pretty much independently. If they run into problems with a sample or test they come to me for problem-solving and troubleshooting assistance. I spend a large part of my time preparing quotes for USP-NF testing and method development projects.”

“We use our [Evolution 201/220] UV-Vis for everything from simple single point colorimetric limit tests to calibration-curve based colorimetric assays to molar absorptivity measurements for customer’s internal reference standards.”

“We don’t do any routine QA/QC testing, although we act as an outside QC lab for our customers and our workload is dependent on their needs. Our UV-Vis allows us to offer them very high data quality and integrity and rapid turnaround times.”
