Increased Scanning Speed

With its high sensitivity, the LAMBDA 1050 can scan faster than ever with no reduction in data quality.

Better Sample Control

The LAMBDA 1050 has been designed with a host of features and accessories to control your sample and ensure the quality of your data, including:

  • The industry’s largest sample compartments for more sample maneuverability and quick installation of various accessories
  • Snap-in integrating spheres to capture diffuse and specular reflectance. Available in 60 and 150 mm, with 8° reflectance and center mount capability
  • Universal Reflectance Accessory with dual Si and InGaAs detectors for automated, precise and reproducible angle adjustments
  • Pol/Depol Drive Unit for automatic control of polarized or depolarized light via PC
  • Internal instrument controlled attenuation from 1 to 0.1%, for high absorbing measurements

Smarter Flexibility

The LAMBDA 1050’s smart modular design and range of snap-in accessories allow you to set up the instrument to suit a variety of needs and configurations, including:

  • Dual Sampling Compartment – The LAMBDA 1050 can be configured with two large sampling compartments for twice the flexibility. Use one for standard reflectance or transmission tests, and the other for more specific customizable applications
  • Universal Reflectance Accessory – Remove the standard detector and snap in this innovative accessory for automatically measuring sample angles
  • General-Purpose Optical Bench – Swap in our GPOB to accommodate larger samples such as lenses, beamsplitters and optics

And the Fastest Setup Time

With so many user-friendly features, the LAMBDA Series offers the industry’s lowest sampling setup time. So, not only can you go where you’ve never gone before, but you can get there the fastest way possible! PerkinElmer also offers a standard validation kit for all of our LAMBDA spectrophotometers
