Spectrometer ( Molec. ): UV/VIS/NIR
Shimadzu's Personal Spectroscopy Software is designed for instrument control and data analysis for the UV-3101PC.
Never before has a data processing system been so versatile without sacrificing technique-specific power. We have taken every advantage of the Windows environment, making operation graphic and easy to learn. The software is so well constructed and perfectly integrated with the spectrophotometer, you hardly know you're working with a PC. Added features like Pop-Up Scan and pull-down menus give you instant access to methods, data and unparalleled support.
Our unique six-grating system gives you what no one else can. Known resolution at every point of the spectrum.
We're giving you the power and precision of this research-grade spectrophotometer at an affordable price. The UV-3101PC is by far the best value available of the market today. You could pay up to 50% more to get a research-grade UV-VIS-NIR spectrophotometer, without the benefit of nearly as many outstanding features. What's more, with Shimadzu you are assured of reliable precision-engineering and powerful Personal Spectroscopy Software as well.
What sets our system apart is the use of two sets of three gratings to cover the wide wavelength range from the ultraviolet to the near-infrared. This gives you relatively constant energy and signal-to-noise. With the addition of the MPC-3100, you expand your measurement capabilities to include solids and bulky objects. This MPC-3100 features many attachments for measuring reflectance and transmittance at several angles, permitting measurement at high energy throughput and at ranges up to 2600 nm. Our reputation for quality engineering and manufacturing places us in the enviable position: offering you a top research-grade optical system and a reasonable price.
