ECO-FRIENDLY & CLEAN For a Beautiful Earth
Product concepts underlying Hitachi's U-5100 UV-Visible Spectrophotometer is ECO-FRIENDLY & CLEAN. The Model U-5100 delivers a compact, lightweight package with remarkable power savings and a long life for its light source.
The U-5100 incorporates every aspect of the technological features of Hitachi's reliability-proven spectrophotometers while achieving our ultimate goal to create a spectrophotometer that is ECO-FRIENDLY & CLEAN and provides SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE.
Adoption of a Xenon flash lamp
By adopting a long-lasting Xenon flash lamp, the product delivers a long life for its lamp, eliminating the need for periodic lamp replacement that was necessary in previous model*1.
Energy saving design
Through control of the Xenon flash lamp that emits pulses only during measurement, power consumption is reduced by 70% compared with previous model.
Reduced measurement time
The automatic switching of 6 cells by using an automatic 6-cell turret and a high-speed scanning (12,000 nm/min) deliver a substantial reduction in measurement time (approximately 60% reduction). The examples shown in the figure compare*2 the amount of time required to measure 100 samples (5 wavelengths × 20 samples) with a previous model*1, based on biological analyses and quality control on food products.
Compact, lightweight design
The U-5100 features a 38% smaller footprint, and a 52% reduction in weight compared with a previous model*1, which makes it easier to secure an adequate installation space.
The standard configuration of an automatic 6-cell turret makes performing measurements a breeze. As part of its standard configuration, the system is equipped with a 6-cell turret which accommodates up to six 10-mm rectangular cells.
The system can measure a maximum of six calibration solutions and sample solutions*3, which reduces measurement time.

An example of quantitative analysis of hexavalent chromium by diphenylcarbazide absorptiometry is introduced here. As a result of creating a working curve within 0 to 0.8 µg/mL, a correlation coefficient of 0.9999 was obtained, proving an excellent calibration relationship.
Measuring wavelength: 540 nm
Concentration of standard solution: 0, 0.04, 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 0.8 µg/mL
|The system withdraws a sample from a test tube and can automatically measure it.|
|Single cell holder
|The system can measure square cells with a 10-mm optical path on a single-cell basis.|
|Rectangular long path cell holder
|The system can measure square cells with 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 100-mm optical paths on a single-cell basis. The use of cells with long optical paths allows the system to measure low-concentration samples at a high degree of sensitivity.|
|Micro quartz cell 10 mm
|The system is well-suited for the measurement of micro-volume samples.|
|Black quartz micro cell 10 mm|
|Mask for micro cell
|This system is used with non-black-walled micro cells in the sample and reference position and to attenuate the reference beam when using self-masking micro cells in the sample position.|
