The luxuriously designed OPTIZEN Alpha is a spectrophotometer that uses double-beam method.

OPTIZEN Alpha can measure the transmittance or absorbance at each wavelength of a sample in ultraviolet and visible light bands to determine the quantitative characteristics such as concentration and purity.

OPTIZEN Alpha, which can be used widely from general analytical experiments to professional research fields, guarantees accurate measurement and excellent reproducibility and provides reliable results in various fields such as the environment, biotechnology, and chemistry.

The previous single beam type spectrophotometer has a weak point of error occurrence in measuring a sample, because of the movement of a light source by time lag in measuring the strength of between a reference light and a light from sample. To solve the problem, OPTIZEN Alpha was designed as a double-beam type spectrophotometer. The system utilizes an additional reference beam to improve the measurement performance by compensating the intensity fluctuation of its light source.

Modes for Measurement

  • Photometric Mode
    This mode allows you to measure the absorbance and concentration of a sample at a specific wavelength.
  • Quantitation Mode
    This mode allows you to quantitatively analyze a sample using the calibration curve.
  • Spectrum Mode
    This mode allows you to acquire the absorption or transmission spectrum in the desired wavelength band.
  • Kinetics Mode
    This mode allows you to measure the absorbance or transmittance of a sample over time.


Photometric Mode
  • In this mode, the absorbance (Abs) (or transmittance (%T)) at a specific wavelength can be easily measured.
  • The factor (K) value can be set to allow a simple quantitative test (C = K × A) on a sample to be performed making it possible for absorbance (Abs) measurement.
  • Up to 8 wavelengths can be set, and the absorbance at each wavelength is measured automatically.
  • Automatic analysis for up to 7 samples is possible using the multi-cell holder.

Quantitation Mode
  • It is a mode that can measure and manage the calibration curve by utilizing the multi-cell holder.
  • Quantitative analysis for a sample of interest can be performed using a calibration curve made by up to 7 concentrations of the sample.
  • Four types of calibration curves including linear (zero-crossing), linear, quadratic, and cubic types are provided.
  • Accurate calibration curve can be created with the values measured repeatedly for a maximum of 5 times.

Spectrum Mode
  • This mode allows the user to check the spectrum of the desired wavelength band.
  • Absorbance (Abs) and transmittance (%T) data can be switched using a shortcut key.
  • Automatic spectrum analysis for up to 7 samples (excluding the reference sample) is possible.
  • This mode includes the functions to zoom in the section and to find the Peak/Valley location of the spectrum.

Kinetics Mode
  • This mode allows the user to check the change in absorbance(or transmittance) over time at a specific wavelength.
  • This mode is measured at regular intervals, and the minimum interval that can be set is for 1 second.
  • This mode’s progresses during the measurement is displayed, and 24-hour measurement is possible.
  • The changes in the absorbance of 7 samples can be obtained automatically.


OPTIZEN View, PC-Interface software of OPTIZEN Series, enables the user to
check and control the result of sample measurement in real time in Windows® environment and facilitate the general management related to the device and the measurement.
