Diode array performance with built-in GLP
The Agilent 8453 spectrophotometer is the core of powerful and productive systems for routine and occasional users that are easy to use and integrate seamlessly into the modern laboratory. The spectrophotometer comes equipped with all the diode-array advantages – fast scanning, excellent sensitivity, virtually absolute wavelength reproducibility, exceptional ruggedness and reliability, minimum maintenance and open sample area, and significant improvements in optical performance. Better than two nanometer resolution, wavelength range of 190 to 1100 nm and less than 0.03 % stray light is standard.
Easy to use - Built-in buttons for measuring sample, standard and blank. Space saving small laboratory benchtop footprint. Easy to exchange prealigned deuterium and tungsten lamp light sources. Future-proof firmware upgrades possible through PC disk.
Flexible accessories - Built-in interfaces for interconnectivity with accessories -- Agilent's multicell transport, Peltier thermostatted cell holder, sipper system, or autosampler for example, and Gilson autosamplers, Labsphere diffuse reflectance accessories, or fiber optics couplers from Custom Sensors & Technology. Open sample area makes access and exchange easy.
Stable optics - Thermally stable ceramic spectrograph with one nanometer slit width from 190 - 1100 nm, ceramic chassis manufactured under license from Carl Zeiss.
GLP built-in - Serial and firmware revision number held in firmware. Extensive self-test procedures for lamp intensity, wavelength accuracy and noise to ensure consistent performance between validation. Built-in log book carries the results of self-tests plus notes on instrument maintenance.
