Spectrofluorophotometer offers speed, sensitivity, stability

The high-performance RF-6000 spectrofluorophotometer is designed to deliver high speed, stability and sensitivity. Using intuitive LabSolutions RF software, the instrument handles challenging applications in chemical, environmental, pharmaceutical, foods and life sciences labs.

The RF-6000 offers the highest sensitivity and highest signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) in its class (SNR ≥1,000 RMS and ≥350 peak-peak). The high sensitivity allows for very low limits of quantitation, easily achieving quantitation of fluorescein to concentrations of 1 × 10-13 mol/L. In addition, an auto-gain control function ensures measurements are performed without influence of environmental factors. As a result, the system can perform accurate and highly quantitative measurements over a wide six-order dynamic range, from 10-13 to 10-7 mol/L.

The user-friendly software features sophisticated, yet easy-to-use functionality ranging from standard fluorescence to 3D measurements of fluorescence spectra at any wavelength interval. The software also features a spectrum correction routine to automatically calculate corrected excitation and emission spectra. By employing the software’s quantum efficiency function, users can easily obtain the quantum yield and quantum efficiency of fluorescence materials.   

The instrument can accomplish both traditional tasks and new applications. These include the quality control of drug products, evaluation of low-level contaminants in rivers, quantitative analysis of additives and analysis of LED, solar cells and organic electroluminescence (EL) devices.
