Shimadzu’s compact UV-2600 and UV-2700 UV-Vis spectrophotometers feature advanced optical systems and Shimadzu’s proprietary “Lo-Ray-Ligh” diffraction gratings, which substantially reduce stray light, enabling confident use for routine analysis and demanding research applications.
With its double monochromator design and Lo-Ray-Ligh diffraction gratings, the UV-2700 achieves ultra-low stray light of 0.00005 %T at 220 nm. Its photometric performance range has been expanded to 8 Abs, with a transmittance value of 0.000001%. 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 1400 nm, 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.
Common features for each spectrophotometer include:
• New UV performance validation software for applications requiring hardware validation is provided standard. The software supports USP, EP and JP test requirements.
• Updated UVProbe software – features a variety of data processing, calculation, QA/QC functions, GLP/GMP support and support for DNA/RNA/Protein quantitation methods. Optional software enables color and thickness measurement, as well as thermal melt (Tm) analysis.
• Compact size – the required installation space has been reduced by 28 percent, while maintaining the same sample compartment size.
In addition, power consumption has been reduced to 170 VA, for a 10-percent energy savings. 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. Accessories significantly expand the functionality of the UV-2600 and UV-2700 by accommodating several industry applications.
