DR 6000™ UV VIS Spectrophotometer without RFID

Product #: LPV441.99.00002


The DR6000™ is the industry’s most advanced lab spectrophotometer. It offers high speed wavelength scanning across the UV and Visible Spectrum, and comes with over 250 pre-programmed methods which include the most common testing methods used today. With optional accessories allowing for high volume testing via a carousel sample changer, and increased accuracy with a sample delivery system which eliminates optical difference errors, this instrument ensures you are ready to handle your wide-ranging water testing needs.

Combining the DR6000 with Hach’s patented TNTplus™ reagent vials, you gain additional accuracy with guided step-by-step testing procedures, while making scratched, flawed or dirty glassware a non-issue due to 10 reading averages and the discarding of outliers. The instrument also utilizes RFID technology, allowing it to automatically let you know if your TNTplus reagents have expired, while detecting coefficient factors to avoid errors which can occur in lot-to-lot variations in the chemistries.

Partnering all of these features with an integrated QA software package allows for scheduling, documenting and interpreting your needed quality measurements.

  • Your Water Testing Needs, All in One Spectrophotometer

The DR 6000 has the most pre-programmed testing methods, including high speed wavelength scanning across the UV and Visible Spectrum.


  • Accessories for High Volume and High Accuracy Testing Needs

A carousel sample changer allows for up to seven sequential measurements. The Sipper Module, an instrument controlled sample delivery system, increases precision by constant optical characteristics.


  • Advanced Quality Assurance at Your Fingertips

The DR 6000 comes with integrated QA software for scheduling, documenting and interpreting all of your needed quality measurements.


  • Guided Procedures and Elimination of False Readings

The DR 6000, when used with TNTplus® reagent vials provides you the accurate results you need by guiding you step-by-step through your testing procedures. With TNTplus the instrument averages 10 readings and eliminating outliers, making scratched, flawed or dirty glassware a non-issue.


  • Large Color Touch Screen Interface

The color display allows instant identification of alerts and easy comparison of overlayed graphical data. The touch screen interface is intuitive to use, minimizing the need to reference the user manual.
