Features of the J-1000 series 

The three models of the J-1000 series offer the most robust feature set available, for applications ranging from education and routine analysis to complex research with strict requirements. 

Advanced features of the J-1000 series:

  • High optical throughput
  • Low stray light
  • Advanced electronics: digital signal processing (DSP) using FGPA
  • Simultaneous Multi-Probe (SMP): CD, LD, fluorescence, UV-visible, absorbance
  • Wide dynamic range
  • Highly effcient nitrogen purge system: low- volume monochromator designed using a flow simulator
  • Integrated Hg lamp for wavelength calibration
  • NIST traceable scale calibration standard
  • Single USB connection for simplicity and easy PC changes in the future
  • Measurement of micro-volume samples
  • Three scanning modes: auto, step and continuous

Unique optical features and benefits:

  • Compact benchtop design
  • Air-cooled 150W Xenon lamp
  • Highest signal-to-noise ratio
  • Collimated sample beam for artifact-free solid sampling and use of external accessories
  • Range of precise temperature control accessories
  • Automated-titration and stopped-flow
  • Spectra Manager II software for control and data analysis
  • Spectra Manager CFR option for 21 CFR Part 11 compliance
  • Secondary Structure Analysis and Advanced Curve Fitting Analysis capabilities included as standard
  • Flexible design allows for field upgrades for different measurement capabilities
  • Ability to upgrade accessories as applications and budgets evolve
