The Waters 2487 Dual Absorbance Detector: is a two-channel, tunable, ultraviolet/visible (UV/Vis) detector designed for high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) applications. Applications such as in-vitro diagnostic testing to analyze many compounds, including diagnostic indicators and therapeutically monitored compounds. The Detector can operate either as a stand-alone unit (with a chart recorder or integrator) or as an integral part of a Waters chromatography system. Configured with either the Waters systems Millennium 32 Chromatography Manager, the Waters Alliance HPLC systems (the 2690, 2690D or 2790 Separations Module) or the Waters PowerLine system.


Capabilities include:

  • Stand-alone programmability: Stores up to 10 user-defined programs (or methods) consisting of up to 16 programmable timed events and 2 threshold events each.
  • Single or dual wavelength: Monitors absorbance at one or two discrete wavelengths.
  • Wavelength verification reference: Ensures wavelength accuracy.
  • Automatic second order filter: Automatically engaged for wavelengths 370 nm and greater and removed for wavelengths 369 nm or less.
  • Spectrum scan and storage: Supports spectrum scan, display, subtraction, storage, and playback, in addition to standard tunable absorbance and UV/Vis functionality.
  • Cuvette qualification: Facilitates qualification of the detector by insertion of a standard in a cuvette without breaking any fluidic connections. Waters qualification kits are available in cuvette form to support this feature. This feature also allows you to use the 2487 Detector as a benchtop spectrophotometer.
  • Cuvette sample analysis: Allows the spectrum of any sample placed in the cuvette to be recorded.
