The Flow-UV™ UV-Visible spectrophotometric detector from Uniqsis has been designed for use with almost any commercial flow chemistry system and fits into even crowded fume cupboards. The Flow-UV™ is an affordable solid state, full spectrum UV-Visible spectrophotometer that may be used for batch analysis as well as continuous flow applications. The standard flow cell has a pathlength of 1 mm. Other path lengths are available and the instrument is compatible with a wide range of Z-configuration flow cells that may be more suitable for high-throughput process applications. At room temperature, the standard flow cell can withstand pressures of up to 35 bar and may be positioned anywhere in the flow path. Dispersion and steady state may be monitored at five user-selected wavelengths in real time to assist with product collection and quality control. In conjunction with Uniqsis FlowControl II system control software, the Flow-UV is used to automate reaction product collection in either “Collect All”, “Steady State” or “Balanced” collection modes. The spectrometer control software allows saved methods to be recalled and will automatically record a background spectrum at the start of each experiment.
