Holmium Oxide Calibration Standard

Today, one of the greatest challenges in applying the techniques of spectrophotometry is the continual introduction of new procedures for analysis. Likewise, the quality of these techniques is in direct correlation with the strict requirements on the device or spectrophotometer being used.    

When the spectrophotometer meets high standards and is known to always be consistent then laboratories can rest assured that their calibrations are accurate. On the other hand, if the wavelength calibration is not precise then spectrophotometry leads to inaccurate analysis and additional financial costs.

To have accurate analysis, effective techniques, and save on costs it is imperative that the wavelength calibration of the spectrophotometer is accurate. In fact, it is a common procedure to repeatedly check the wavelength calibration accuracy of an instrument.

Recently an advanced new Holmium Oxide Calibration Standard has been introduced. This innovative standard is being utilized to check the wavelength calibration for spectrophotometers. The holmium oxide filter allows the wavelength calibration of a spectrophotometer to be tested over a wide range. As well, the standard can also be used for troubleshooting a device and modifying the instrument to the necessary degree of sensitivity.

Expenditures for calibrating wavelength accuracy, especially in the visible (VIS) range, can become rather cumbersome since the tests need to be done often. Not only is time being spent to test spectrophotometer accuracy but there are premium fees for UV/VIS calibration standards. Nonetheless, checking the wavelength calibration of a spectrophotometer is required for accurate analysis and is a requisite.

The ideal holmium oxide calibration standard should always be NIST compliant. In addition, instructions for a stress free set up can save a great deal of time. However, since holmium oxide filters are relatively a new technology there are only a small handful of establishments that make them. Even further, finding a company that is knowledgeable is almost impossible. NSG's WAV-1 UV/VIS Holmium Oxide Wavelength Calibration Filter is the ultimate filter
