UV-1900i UV-Vis Spectrometer

UV-Vis Spectrometer

UV-Vis powerhouse that easily handles both standard testing and research analysis

The UV-1900i UV-Vis spectrophotometer analyzes and verifies materials in many R&D, quality control and research applications

The UV-1900i double-beam spectrophotometer is a flexible instrument that you can operate as a standalone unit using the touch panel or with a PC combined with the included LabSolutions™ UV-Vis software. This technology simplifies data acquisition, analysis, and project supervision.

The UV-1900i system can also pair with Shimadzu’s software compliance package to provide total data integrity, user administration and audit trails to full compliance with FDA 21 CFR Part 11.

Pharmaceuticals and life sciences analysis

  • Strong performance for diverse scientific research applications

    Busy pharmaceutical and life sciences laboratories demand instruments that are precise, durable and efficient. The UV-1900i system is the optimal choice for routine pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and life science analyses, quality assurance and R&D. Applications include DNA and protein quantitation, dissolution testing and thermal melt analysis of biomolecules.

    For example, you can use the UV-1900i UV-Vis spectrophotometer for nucleic acid quantitation. Trace quantities down to 0.7 μL can be measured using a TrayCell® or Nano Stick. Using TrayCell, a calibration curve for 4 μL of λDNA was obtained in the range between 25 ng/μL and 500 ng/μL. Bio methods come standard on the front panel to quickly run routine tests without the need of a PC.

Food and beverage analysis

  • Food and beverage analysis with UV-Vis
  • Fast, reliable analysis of ingredients and contaminants

    Food and beverage quality and safety are paramount concerns and UV-Vis spectroscopy is an important way to help ensure that products meet quality standards and are safe for consumption. The UV-1900i system is used to analyze food and beverages for adulteration, additives and preservatives, heavy metals, plastic and microplastic packaging materials, color and unknown contaminants.

    Here is an example of food dye analysis. You can use the ultra-fast scan mode to shorten the time needed for routine spectral checks. The 350 nm to 900 nm region can be measured at 1 nm intervals in approximately four seconds.

    Beer Analyzer is optional software for the UV-1900i that allows for brewers to easily analyze the color, polyphenols, alcohol content and bitterness. Based on ASBC Standard Methods.

Chemistry analysis of materials

  • High-throughput for analyzing the chemistry of diverse materials samples

    The UV-1900i UV-Vis spectrophotometer is a fundamental instrument used in chemistry for analyzing the absorption and transmission of light by chemical substances. It is widely used in quantitative analysis to determine the concentration of a substance in a solution, qualitative analysis to identify unknown compounds or determine the presence of specific functional groups, reaction monitoring and the characterization of chemical substances and reactions.

    Here is an example of colored cellophane tape analysis. You can quantitatively confirm materials using LabSolutions UV-Vis and color measurement software.
