Optometrics Corp. has manufactured over 20,000 Mini-Chrom monochromators since their initial introduction in 1978. The majority have been incorporated into a variety of analytical and biomedical instruments made and marketed by leaders in their respective fields.
Mini-Chrom monochromators are currently being used as the principal optical assembly in numerous types of instruments and analyzers. When not integrated into other manufacturers’ products, Mini-Chroms are used in basic and applied research projects in industrial, government and university laboratories. The combination of excellent performance, low cost and small size has contributed to the widespread use of the Mini-Chrom.
