The compact design optimizes the light path so that the sample compartment receives the maximum possible excitation light. The end result of the compact design is an instrument of outstanding ability in measuring fluorophores with very low quantum yields, which fits in any laboratory space.Full Automation
Instrument control and data acquisition are performed through a personal computer; any single experiment, or a series of experiments, can be planned via the software. The experimental plan is executed by the software and data are acquired in long unattended sessions and stored onto the hard disk.Interfaceability
The PCI is provided with communication ports for interfacing with such devices as stopped flow, temperature bath, flash lamp, pressure pump, and titrator. Any of these devices can be controlled through the ISS software, thus allowing the operator a range of experimental possibilities and freedom of operation.Data Reduction Management
Vinci Multidimensional Spectroscopy software (for WindowsXP operating system) acquires data in ASCII format for maximum portability to other software packages. Data files can be stored directly on other workstations connected to local area networks.Upgradability
The PC1 is fully upgradable to the K2 Multifrequency Phase Fluorometer for fluorescence and phosphorescence lifetime measurements with picosecond resolution. A variety of light sources are available as well as accessories for any application.
