Jasco Inc. has introduced the P-2000, a multioption customizable polarimeter that can be upgraded in the field. It can be operated via a PC with Windows software or via the proprietary handheld iRM controller. Available light sources include tungsten-halogen, sodium and mercury lamps, and two can be installed simultaneously for coverage from the UV/VIS to the near-IR — from 254 to 880 nm. Sample temperature control is available with accuracy of ±0.1 °C. The device is 21 CFR 11-compliant and is supplied with a lifetime warranty on its polarizers and modulators.
