My wife's experience with a spectrophotometer was not good.

She has just told me that the main problem was that the instrument was suitable only for qualitative work, but that its manufacturer said it could be used for quantitative. The supposed quantitative results were useless. Failure was built in ab initio. Perhaps spectrophotometers are better now, with only the grammar broken.

My answer probably has no bearing whatever on the grammatical point in question, but one still might investigate the underlying measurement technology, cautiously.
