UV-2600i, UV-2700i

The UV-2600i and UV-2700i double-beam spectrophotometers are true research-grade instruments for a wide variety of applications. The high-absorbance measurement capability and sub-nanometer bandwidths make them perfect for analysis of band gap, optical coatings and thin films, biological samples like DNA and proteins, and any routine work expected of a UV-Vis spectrophotometer.

The UV-2600i and UV-2700i are equipped with Shimadzu’s propriety Lo-Ray-Ligh® diffraction gratings for low stray light levels to obtain very accurate measurements of samples, including very high absorbing and reflecting samples encountered in the field of materials. These research-grade instruments are suitable for materials characterization in the variety of markets, including electronics and optics, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, life sciences, environmental, textiles and food. Shimadzu LabSolutions UV-Vis control software is included with the instrument measurement modes include photometric, spectrum, quantitation, kinetics, time course and bio-methods.

With the LabSolutions UV-Vis software, users can get most out of the instrument in terms of data acquisition, analysis, data integrity and users administration. With proper software compliance package, the UV-2600i/UV-2700i and the software setup can provide total data integrity, users administration and audit trail to fully comply with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
