Feature explanation:

  • Live ID system – 2-D bar code recognition for cell and reagent tests
    Live ID is a new, 2-D data-rich identification system printed on our cell and reagent tests. Unlike other barcodes it transfer not only automatically important data to the spectrophotometers such as method recognition, lot number, and expiry date. The “live” calibration updates guarantees your results are always correct and traceable.
    A new dimension in security as Prove reads the code, detects the method and selects the right settings. Specific lot number and expiry date are saved with each result to simplify your documentation and streamline audits.
  • Ambient light protection – open door measurements
    Innovative ambient light protection allows open door measurements due to proprietary solution for convenient easy analysis of multiple samples. (Patent pending)
  • Preprogrammed methods supports over 180 Spectroquant® cell and reagent test kits
    Spectroquant® Prove offers direct insertion of round cell tests without opening any lids. You have both hand free for the job.
    Over 180 Spectroquant® cell or reagent tests provides you a broad range of preprogrammed test.
    Cell tests includes all reagents you need for your analysis and with the Live ID barcode printed on the cell they are ready to use out of the box.
    Reagent test with AutoSelector are economical test kits contain highly stable reagent mixtures and allow you to choose the cell format that suits your measuring. An AutoSelector with the Live ID code is provided in each kit.
  • Intuitive smart screen displays for simple, seamless menu navigation
    Smart touch screens for simple, seamless menu navigation in 28 languages.
    Resistive touch screens for the Prove 100 and Prove 300.
    The Prove 600 comes along with a projected capacitive glass touch screen (PCAP).
  • AQA Prime – a new level of security in analytical quality assurance
    AQA prime offers a clear overview of AQA status, information, updates and options with justone touch. Individual settings for all methods in Analytical Quality Assurance (AQA) modes
    AQA1 (instrument check),
    AQA2 (system check) – (now easier as Prove is preprogrammed for all Spectroquant® standards
    and Pipette check
  • Long-life Lamp – brilliant durability and economy
    New reference beam technology in minimizes costs and efforts of replacing lamps by using:
    Tungsten halogen lamp for VIS measurements in Prove 100
    Xenon flash lamp for UV/ VIS measurements in Prove 300 and Prove 600.
