The industry’s most advanced lab spectrophotometer.

The DR6000™ is the industry’s most advanced laboratory spectrophotometer for water testing. It offers high-speed wavelength scanning across the UV and Visible Spectrum, and comes with over 250 pre-programmed methods including the most common water and environmental 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 that 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™ test kits, you gain additional accuracy with guided step-by-step testing procedures, while making scratched, flawed or dirty glassware a non-issue due to averaging 10 readings and discarding outliers. The spectrophotometers also utilizes RFID technology, allowing it to let you know automatically if your TNTplus test kits 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 quality assurance software package allows for scheduling, documenting and interpreting your needed quality measurements.

Your water and environmental testing needs, all in one spectrophotometer.
