Molecular Devices produces a single unit that will read from 190-1000nm, and
will also read from a cuvette in addition to all manner of microplates.  The
units goes for over $20,000, however, it is tunable and you should not need
to purchase any accessories, and it also serves as a spectrophotometer.

They are located on the web at:    http://www.moldev.com/

We recently purcahsed another model from them and are very happy with it.
