Shimadzu Scientific Instruments Inc. (SSI) has unveiled the UV-3600 UV-Vis-NIR three-detector spectrophotometer, which performs high-resolution spectroscopic analysis from 185 to 3300 nm. It is equipped with a photomultiplier tube and InGaAs and PbS detectors. A double monochromator produces resolution to 0.1 nm with stray light of ≤0.00005% at 340 nm, and the noise level is <0.00003 at 1500 nm. The device is supplied with UVProbe software, which includes functions for spectrum measurement, photometry, kinetics and report generation. A variety of security and audit trail functions facilitate data management, and optional software enables measurement of color and film thickness.
