Shimadzu UV-1800 UV-Vis Spectrophotometer with Computer/Software


Shimadzu UV-1800 UV-Vis Spectrophotometer with Computer/Software


The Shimadzu UV-1800 is an advanced high-resolution spectrophotometer utilizing a precision Czerny-Turner optical system. Operation can be either as a stand-alone instrument or as a PC-controlled instrument with the included UV Probe software. USB memory can be connected directly to the UV-1800 for simple data transfer and printing is possible with the optional screen-copy printer or printers that support PCL control codes.

This instrument is in great condition and comes with computer/software.  The system is being sold with a 60 day warranty.

  • Standard 60-day warranty

Multiple measurement modes are possible including:

Photometric Mode – for measuring the absorbance or transmittance at a single wavelength or at multiple (up to eight) wavelengths.

Spectrum Mode – for obtaining sample spectra using wavelength scanning.

Quantitation Mode – for generating a calibration curve from standard samples and uses it to calculate the concentrations of unknown samples.

Kinetics Mode – for measuring the change in absorbance as a function of time and calculates enzymatic activity values.

Time-Scan Mode – for measuring the change in absorbance, transmittance, or energy as a function of time.

Multi-Component Quantitation Mode – for separately quantitating up to eight components mixed in a single sample.

Biomethod Mode – for analyzing DNA and proteins using the several common quantitation.

  • Security and validation functionality are also preprogrammed.
  • Validation functions include wavelength accuracy, wavelength repeatability, resolution, stray light, photometric accuracy, photometric repeatability, baseline flatness, baseline stability, and noise level.
