For quality assurance testing of sunscreen and cosmetics using Labsphere’s UV2000S transmittance analyzer, the company has introduced the UV2000S, a sample preparation starter kit. The benchtop R&D system measures the spectral transmittance of sunscreen products, especially those with sun protection factors (SPFs) of 50 and above, as well as UVA/UVB protection factor. It enables the user to prepare an in vitro sunscreen sample common to Boot Star, Colipa, FDA and user-defined SPF measurement methods. The kit provides a tube of Vaseline, a positive displacement pipette, pipette capillaries (100 µl) and pistons (25 µl), nonpowdered finger cots and a sample preparation guide.
