UV-Visible Spectrophotometer: Hitachi U-5100 Ratio-Beam

Eco-friendly and high-performance, the U-5100 is the best choice for a wide range of applications from teaching and routine QC to biotech and environmental testing.

Overview

This entry-level instrument utilizes ratio beam optics to give exceptional stability for a host of applications including kinetics, and offers full scanning capabilities. Routine analyses are readily carried out using the simple-to-use photometry, absorbance ratio, and time scan modes. The U-5100 also features an eco-friendly design using an ultra long-life pulsed Xe lamp and easy operation with a large LCD and standard automatic 6-cell changer.

Features

  • High performance affording the best baseline stability and the lowest noise in its class
  • Eco-friendly system using an ultra long-life pulsed Xe lamp
  • Easy operation with a large LCD and a built-in automatic 6-cell changer
  • Super compact, light-weight design that easily fits on a table top
  • Standard validation function for checking performance
  • Modes of operation: Scanning, Time (Kinetics), Photometry and Ratio (DNA/RNA Analysis)
