Do you need to have a spectrofluorometer for your laboratory? There are a number of different options available, and it is very important that you choose the right one for your work. Keep in mind that different models and options will have differing wavelength ranges that they are able to cover. Always consider the wavelength range when you are choosing your rental. In addition, take some time to look at the controls the machine offers. Again, some of the devices may be easier to use than others. You want a spectrofluorometer that is able to provide you with fast and accurate spectral scanning that is still easy to use. If you have trouble determining which one is the best option, a KWIPPED supplier will be more than happy to assist you.
Features of spectrofluorometers
The spectrofluorometer is a complex device, which features photomultiplier tubes, a photodiode, and in some cases, a charge coupled device detector. The devices can include a number of different components. The systems can come with a variety of different options as well. Some of the other components that many are using with their spectrofluorometer include polarizers, cryostats, filter holders, LEDs, slide holders, manual slits, computer controlled slits, near infrared detectors, and more. Some of the options are user friendly and are perfect for research study.
How spectrofluorometers work
The device is capable of measuring the emission from the sample at a single wavelength, or it can perform a full scan. This will record the intensity against the wavelength. Another term for this is emission spectra. They utilize high intensity light sources and they then shoot as many photons as possible toward the sample. The more photons used the higher the number of excited molecules. This leads to better and more accurate results. The light will pass through a filter or a monochromator. This makes it easy to choose the wavelength you are interested in to be selected.
