UV-Vis analysis on the next level

by | Mar 26, 2020

These six UV-VIS spectrophotometers are suitable for use in fields such as academia, pharmaceuticals and chemicals and increase efficiency in many ways.

Shimadzu has released six new UV-VIS spectrophotometer models under a new UV-i Selection brand. These instruments are equipped as standard with the LabSolutions UV-Vis analytical data system for UV-VIS spectrophotometers. The UV-i Selection systems are well-suited to use in a wide range of fields, including academia, pharmaceuticals and chemicals.

The six UV-Vis spectrophotometers offer a highly user-friendly operability, automated analysis of multiple samples and other features to satisfy a broad spectrum of customer needs.

The six models in the UV-i Selection series are the UV-1900i, UV-2600i, UV-2700i, UV-3600i Plus, SolidSpec-3700i and SolidSpec-3700i DUV. The letter “i” stands for

  • the “intelligence” to determine automatically whether samples pass or fail criteria, relieving users from the tedium of repetitive quality control steps
  • “innovation” covering automatic measurement to improve operating efficiency
  • “informatics” meaning improved data analysis efficiency and stronger data management functionality.

Multi-faceted increase in efficiency
The UV-i Selection series provides new product features which are common to all models. They increase efficiency in multi-faceted ways, such as quality control, automation and time-saving as well as data management functionalities.

The UV-i Selection spectrophotometers serve a broad spectrum of applications. The instruments cover wavelengths from deep ultra-violet up to Near-Infrared range, reaching from 165 – 3,300 nm. They also offer high-sensitivity and fast analysis, and a large diversity of measurement modes.

UV-1900i: awarded system with new functionalities
In addition to the intelligence, innovation and informatics functionalities, the UV-1900i is equipped with an ultra-fast scan acquiring spectra as fast as 29,000 nm /min, providing high-accuracy quantitative analysis and detection of low-concentration components. This double-beam UV-Vis spectrophotometer applies Shimadzu's original LO-RAY-LIGH diffraction grating technology. Its easy-to-use color touch panel supports excellent operability. The UV-1900i has been awarded with a 2019 Red Dot Design Award, a world-leading design award.

The UV-1900i can be either controlled via a computer or operated as a standalone system, independently without a computer connected. The following features are applicable when used as a standalone system.

  • Data Transfer Function
  • Wakeup Function
  • External Control Function
