Three Great Alternatives to USB Spectrometers

Three Great Alternatives to USB Spectrometers

Today’s flagship spectrometers from Ocean Optics – the Flame, Ocean HDX and Ocean FX models – offer all the best features of our longtime USB2000+/USB4000 series spectrometers, but with better performance and greater versatility, at lower cost.

Ocean Optics USB series spectrometers have performed at a high level over a remarkable two-decade run, ranking them among the most popular spectrometers ever. The innovations that customer demand has inspired over the years – including improvements to optical benches, more robust optoelectronics and replaceable slits — are today reflected in the three superior spectrometers comprising our flagship UV-Vis-NIR product offerings.
