In the year 1846 Carl Zeiss founded the Optical Workshop in Jena which was the beginning of the industrial production of analytical instruments worldwide.
In 1963 Carl Zeiss Jena introduced the spectrophotometer SPECORD® that succeeded the Pulfrich photometer first presented in 1924. Even in those days, the SPECORD® series was known for being "reliable, fast, extremely robust and universal". 2013 marked the 50th anniversary of the SPECORD®, one of the most successful analysis instruments from Jena.
Analytik Jena acquired the product section of lab analysis technology from Carl Zeiss Jena in 1995. The company continued to produce the proven product lines and added its own innovative ideas to lead them to the 21st century. Analytik Jena's premium products "Made in Germany" stand for the highest quality standards.
Like all preceding models, the current SPECORD® PLUS series stands for precision, flexibility, reliability and ease of use. Moreover quartz-coated, encapsulated optical components ensure highest quality, maximum performance and durability. The innovative design and the unparalleled range of accessories make it the universal talent for routine tasks and special applications.
Above 150.000 installed instruments worldwide emphasize that spectrophotometers from Jena are the instrument of choice for users around the world.
