Compact UV-VIS spectrophotometers: top in terms of stray light, spectral range and scan speed
Spectrophotometers UV-2600 and UV-2700 from Shimadzu for a wide variety of applications
The new, compact UV-VIS spectrophotometers UV-2600 and UV-2700 from Shimadzu, a worldwide leading manufacturer in analytical instrumentation, were specifically developed for a wide range of research tasks. Application examples range from organic and inorganic compounds, biological samples and optical materials to photovoltaics. The UV-2700 is a true double beam double monochromator system whereas the UV-2600 is the single monochromator version.
Both UV-VIS spectrophotometers underline Shimadzu’s role as the market leader in UV-VIS spectroscopy, setting milestones in spectrophotometry technology for almost 60 years. The UV-2600 and UV-2700 offer “best in class” performance in stray light, photometric range and scan speed. At just 45 x 60 cm the footprint of the instruments has been decreased by 28 % in comparison to the previous UV-2450 and UV-2550 models. Also the energy consumption was reduced by over 10 % by using state-of-the-art electronics.
Surfing different waves for highly sophisticated applications
The optical system of the UV-2700 covers a wavelength range from 185 to 900 nm and is perfect for highly sophisticated applications such as direct measurement of high density samples up to 8 absorbance units without dilution. The high performance level is achieved with Shimadzu’s LO-RAY-LIGH® diffraction grating, based on a new holographic method featuring highest efficiency and exceptionally low stray light.
Where the ultra-low stray light levels of the UV-2700 are not needed, the UV-2600 single monochromator version is available. Combined with the ISR-2600 Plus dual detector integrating sphere, it allows a measuring range up to 1400 nm giving access to the determination of optical material or expanded research of photovoltaics.
Widest scope of accessories and new software
For both systems, a large selection of new accessories is available, such as a mercury lamp unit for validation and a single and dual detector integrating sphere. Together with the MPC-2600 multipurpose large-sample compartment they enable measurement of samples with a wide variety of shapes. Various cell holders such as the constant temperature, the film and the powder sample cell can also be mounted, enabling a wide range of measurement possibilities.
The instrument is controlled by the new UVProbe software version 2.40. Optional software packages are available for color, thickness and Tm analysis. For pharmaceutical and other applications requiring hardware validation, the UV-2600/2700 series provides integrated validation software as standard. USP, EP and JP test requirements are supported. The UV-2600 and UV-2700 are equipped with standard USB ports for easy data input or output.
