Shimadzu UV-1800 UV-Vis Spectrophotometer

Shimadzu is a leader in the development of advanced technologies, which clearly comes to expression in the Shimadzu UV-1800 spectrophotometer. The most important features of UV-1800 include high resolution, compact design and user friendly access to data. The UV-1800 spectrophotometer is equipped with various measurement modes including photometric, spectrum, kinetics, time-scan, quantitation, multi-component quantification and biomethod. The advanced features and various measurement modes make the UV-1800 ideal for many applications.
  • High Resolution

    The UV-1800 achieves a resolution of 1 nm, which is the highest level of wavelength resolution in its class.

  • Compact and Space Saving Design

    The UV-1800 is only 450 mm wide and 490 mm deep making it one of the most compact instruments in its class.

  • User Friendly Access to Data

    The UV-1800 features a USB port. The instrument can therefore be controlled with a PC.

Shimadzu UV-1800 with high resolution

The UV-1800 achieves a resolution of 1 nm, which at the same time is the highest level of wavelength resolution in its class. Additionally a spectroscope with a Czerny-Turner mounting can be used in order to get a compact, bright optical system. Furthermore, wavelength repeatability, stray light and baseline stability have also been optimized in order to meet user requirements.
Because of these features, the UV-1800 has no problems with satisfying the standards of wavelength resolution demanded by the Japanese- and European Pharmacopoeia.

Shimadzu UV-1800 with a compact design

The UV-1800 is one of the most compact instruments in its class. The UV-1800 design has been optimized in relation to width and depth. Therefore, the UV-1800 is only 450 mm wide and 490 mm deep, allowing installation in tight spaces. The space saving design of UV-1800 makes the instrument ideal for even small laboratories.

Shimadzu UV-1800 with user friendly access to data

The UV-1800 features a USB port, allowing for connection of USB memory directly to the instrument. By using the UVProbe software it is possible for the user to control the UV-1800 with a PC. (A USB cable is required for connecting UV-1800 to a PC.)
Furthermore, data for spectra and time-course curves can be displayed and saved with commercial spreadsheet software. The user can also choose to print from a printer that supports PCL control codes.

Shimadzu UV-1800 compared to other instruments

Even though the UV-1800 maintains some features of older Shimadzu instruments, it is still a major upgrade from previous models. In comparison with Shimadzu UV-1700 UV-Vis, the setting space has decreased by about 15% and the width has narrowed by about 20%. Furthermore, Shimadzu UV-1800 restricts stray light to half that of the Shimadzu UV-1700. In addition, a brighter optical system reduces the noise level to 25% of the Shimadzu UV-1700. The Shimadzu UV-1800 is therefore more accurate than the Shimadzu UV-1700.
The UV-1800 is not only a huge upgrade from previous Shimadzu instruments, as it also beats its competitors on several parameters. The Shimadzu UV-1800 is more accurate than both Analytik Jena Spekol 2000 UV-Vis and Jenway 6550 UV-Vis.
