Spectrophotometers reduce stray light
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments
UV-2600; UV-2700 UV-Vis
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments has launched UV-2600 and UV-2700 UV-Vis spectrophotometers, which feature advanced optical systems and Lo-Ray-Ligh diffraction gratings.
According to the company, the spectrophotometers substantially reduce stray light.
With its double monochromator design and Lo-Ray-Ligh diffraction gratings, the UV-2700 is claimed to achieve ultra-low stray light of 0.00005 per cent T at 220nm.
Its photometric performance range has been expanded to 8 Abs, with a transmittance value of 0.000001 per cent.
This eliminates the need to dilute samples and allows the measurement of low transmittance samples.
Equipped with a single monochromator, the UV-2600 features a measurement wavelength range to 1,400nm, using the ISR-2600Plus two-detector integrating sphere.
This ultra-wide range permits measurements in the near-infrared region, and expanded research of photovoltaics and other materials.
The UV-2600 also features the Lo-Ray-Ligh gratings for high efficiency and low stray light levels.
The UV-2600 and UV-2700 come standard with UV performance validation software for applications requiring hardware validation.
The software supports USP, EP and JP test requirements.
Operating under the Windows 7, XP and Vista environments, updated UVProbe software features a variety of data processing, calculation, QA/QC functions, GLP/GMP support and support for DNA/RNA/Protein quantitation methods.
When used in conjunction with UVProbe Agent, compliance with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 is attained.
Optional software enables color and thickness measurement, as well as thermal melt analysis.
The design of the UV-2600 and UV-2700 reduces the required installation space by 28 per cent, while maintaining a same sample compartment size.
In addition, power consumption has been reduced to 170VA.
A wide range of accessories is available, including a multi-purpose sample compartment, film holder, specular reflectance measurement attachment, and capillary cell sets for precious and biological samples.
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments has introduced the AA-7000 Series atomic absorption spectrophotometer, which incorporates 3-D optics for enhanced flame and furnace analysis.
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments's Biospec-nano is a dedicated spectrophotometer for the quantitation of nucleic acids.
Shimadzu designed the IRAffinity-1 Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrophotometer with high-throughput optics and a dynamic alignment mechanism to increase sensitivity, stability and usability
Maintaining what is said to be the highest level of wavelength resolution in its class (1nm), the UV-1800 functions as a standalone instrument or can be PC-controlled with USB memory
Since the mid-90s, ionic liquids have become buzz words for many areas of science such as synthesis, electrochemistry, material science, separation technologies, and biocatalysis
