  • Sol-UV Series UV Solar Simulator
Dec 2011
Oriel InstrumentsRequest Info
STRATFORD, Conn., Dec. 20, 2011 — Oriel, a Newport Corp. Brand, is offering the Sol-UV solar simulator for photobiological applications such as testing over-the-counter sunscreen products’ sun protection factor (SPF).

The new unit simulates the solar ultraviolet radiation required to induce a minimum erythemal response for in vivo and in vitro SPF testing. The simulator’s spectral output complies with the FDA’s Sunscreen Drug Products for Over-the-Counter Human Use (June 2011), the International Sun Protection Factor Test Method (May 2006) and ISO Cosmetics — sun protection test methods: in vivo determination of the sun protection factor, ISO 24444:2010.

The simulator features a patent-pending optical design to achieve spectral compliance, using a proprietary filter and special geometry to meet all applicable standards. Output beam sizes are 2 × 2, 4 × 4 and 6 × 6 in. Calibration-certified by Rapid Precision Testing Laboratories (RPTL), the solar simulators are a cost-effective solution for SPF testing in laboratories or clinics.

Optional filters that provide UVA-, UVA-I-, UVA-II- and UVB-tailored output are available, making the device suitable for phototoxicology, photostability/sensitivity and photocarcinogenesis studies.

Features include nonuniformity of irradiance of <5% over the entire sampling area, variable output attenuation from 10% to 100% of available solar constants (without affecting spectral compliance) using an integrated attenuating aperture, temperature sensors and safety interlocks to prevent inadvertent exposure to UV radiation, a black nonreflective surface to minimize stray light, and easy lamp replacement.
