UV-Vis Spectrophotometers

Shimadzu has been developing UV-Vis spectrophotometers for 60 years, and continues to manufacture instruments that meet scientists' needs for ruggedness, ease of use, validation and applications. Our current lineup features the general, all-purpose UV-1800 with best-in-class resolution (1nm) and built-in biological software, introductory research-grade UV-2600, with an extended range to 1400nm, and the double monochromator UV-2700, which is capable of high Abs measurements. These compact systems are equipped with proprietary low-ray-ligh gratings, offer USB connectivity, and come with the full-featured UVProbe software.
The research-grade UV-Vis-NIR systems, UV-3600 and SolidSpec-3700, incorporate three detectors, which help to achieve excellent sensitivity during transmittance and reflectance, even in the switchover range, while significantly reducing noise.
Additional models include the versatile single-beam UVmini-1240 and bioscience-oriented BioSpec-mini, as well as the low-maintenance, micro-volume BioSpec-nano. Designed for the modern life science laboratory, the BioSpec-nano provides quick, easy nucleic acid quantitation and protein analysis with 1µL to 2µL samples.
