Shimadzu has released the UV-1900 UV-vis spectrophotometer, which is equipped with an ultrafast scan function that enables data acquisition of 29,000 nm min–1 (the visible region can be measured in three seconds). The UV-1900 has a large, easy-to-use colour touch panel, through which all functions are accessible with large and easy to understand icons. In addition, patented LOW-RAY-LIGH® diffraction grating technology ensures low stray light with high resolution and one of the largest ranges of linearity.
While the UV-1900 can be operated as a standalone instrument, the new LabSolutions UV-Vis (Shimadzu’s UV-Vis control software released simultaneously) offers further features, including data pass/fail judgements via its spectral evaluation functions. Data transfer to spreadsheet software and batch text export of multiple data sets are easy. The UV-1900 can connect with Shimadzu’s analysis data management systems (LabSolutions DB/CS) in order to provide integrated data management with other analytical instruments, meeting the various guidelines and regulations relating to electronic records and electronic signatures such as the FDA’s 21 CFR Part 11.
