Jasco Inc. has introduced the latest version of its J series spectropolarimeters for measuring circular dichroism. The J-815 chiro-optical spectrometer includes a photoelastic modulator to provide greater stability and higher sensitivity than previous models offered. New features include a compact benchtop design and wavelengths from 163 to 900 nm. Spectra Manager II software control is standard, and a 21 CFR11compliant package is optional. Accessories are available to enable complementary techniques such as absorbance and fluorescence to be performed simultaneously on the sample.
