Jasco Introduces V-600 Series UV/VIS/NIR Spectrophotometers
Date Posted: Monday, August 21, 2006
Jasco has announced the release of V-600 Series of UV/Vis/NIR spectrophotometers.
The V-600 series consists of five distinct models, including Jasco’s V-630Bio model designed for life science applications.
Features include the "IQ Accessory" function for automatic accessory recognition and the "IQ Start" function for immediate start when conducting routine measurements.
In addition, two graphical user interfaces are available including a redesigned intelligent remote module (iRM) with a color LCD touch screen.
The iRM incorporates a wide display and provides access to all functions necessary for routine applications.
Jasco’s own Spectra Manager II software, the latest version of the Jasco cross-platform spectroscopy software, is designed to allow full system control and advanced data processing.
Spectra Manager II also comes in a 21 CFR part 11 compliant version. Either option is designed to provide easy operation and the ability to perform a wide range of applications from routine to sophisticated procedures.
The V-630 is economical general-purpose instrument of the V-600 Series. Its spectroscopic performance is suitable for advanced biochemical and clinical lab applications, as well as routine applications such as spectrum scanning, kinetics, quantitative analysis, and colorimetric tests conducted for QC and environmental analysis.
The V-650 employs a sensitive photomultiplier tube (PMT) detector, which enables accurate measurements of low concentration samples.
Jasco claims that, the Dark Correction feature combined with high stray light rejection provides absorbance linearity greater than four absorbance units.
It can also be used with solid sample handling accessories such as an integrating sphere to collect diffuse light transmitted or reflected by a sample.
The optical design allows the bandwidth to be set as low as 0.1 nm for high resolution work including gas and vapor phase spectroscopy.
The V-660 is a dual monochromator model. The use of a second monochromator provides higher resolution with low stray light to assure measurements over a wide photometric range, especially at shorter wavelengths.
The V-670 is a UV/Vis/NIR model and employs dual detectors, a PMT for UV/Vis and a PbS unit for the NIR region.
The V-670 is designed for NIR analysis. The spectral wavelength range as standard is 190-2700 nm and can be expanded to 3200 nm (optional).
The V-630BIO is consists of the V-630, an intelligent Remote Module (iRM) designed for bio and clinical analysis, and a micro cell holder.
Built-in bio application programs include protein/nucleic acid measurement, temperature ramping/DNA melting analysis, kinetics measurement and analysis, and a protein quantitative analysis program with six different calibration methods.
The 4 µL 8-position Turret Micro Cell Holder, 6/8-position Automatic Peltier Cell Changer for micro cells, and other sampling accessories are available.
