Horiba Scientific, global leader in Fluorescence spectroscopy systems, just launched their new Dual-FL, which combines the only CCD-based benchtop fluorometer with a built-in UV-VIS spectrophotometer.
Horiba Scientific addressed the need for speed when collecting spectral data and complete excitation-emission matrices (EEMs). Dual-FL features spectral rates as fast as 80,000 nm/s, and acquires EEMs up to a 100 times faster than any other instrument. With its sensitive cooled, back-illuminated CCD detector for rapid collection of emission spectra, and an excitation double monochromator for superior stray light rejection, the Dual-FL has Signal to Noise greater than 20,000:1 RMS. The simultaneous absorbance data can be used to correct inner-filter effects in measurement of high concentration samples, eliminating the need for time consuming, laborious dilutions. Of course, the Dual-FL can also be used as a stand-alone UV-VIS, meeting spectrophotometer test specs like the USP.
Dual-FL is a breakthrough instrument that allows unparalleled speed and ease of use for fluorescence spectroscopy, with the added bonus of meeting all of a lab's UV-VIS needs.
