MWA Setup and Construction

Unlike classical absorbance optics, the MWA assembly is firmly mounted into the rotor chamber. It leaves enough space for the user to lower the rotor into the chamber, passing it beneath the detector optics and seating it onto the spindle.

The complete system comprises the detector arm with its optical and electrical connections, a control unit to be placed into the centrifuge beneath the rotor chamber, and the control software package to be run on a customized PC.
