  • Optional accessories and software

    The Shimadzu UV-3600 is compatible with a wide range of optional accessories including large, multi-purpose sample compartment, and an integrating sphere attachment. The Shimadzu UV-3600 comes with a software package called UVProbe.

Shimadzu UV-3600 with high sensitivity

The Shimadzu UV-3600 enables the users to handle measurement with highly precise transmittance and reflectance, and uses three detectors in order to handle a range going from UV to NIR. The sensitivity has been optimized by using an InGaAs detector and a cooled PbS detector.

Shimadzu UV-3600 with high performance

The Shimadzu UV-3600 is equipped with a high-performance, grating-grating double monochromator, and achieves a low stray-light level with high resolution. The wavelength range is 185-3300 nm. The Shimadzu UV-3600 can perform spectrometry for various types of sample, ranging from samples requiring a high resolution, such as gas, to high concentration liquid samples.

Shimadzu UV-3600 with optional accessories and software

The Shimadzu UV-3600 comes with a software package called UVProbe. This software is used in order to control the instrument and incorporates the following four functions: Spectrum, photometric, kinetics, and report generator. The users can take advantage of a wide variety of data processing options, such as peak/valley detection, area calculation, and others. The quick print options allows the users to print data directly from the different modules without moving to the Report Generator. The UVProbe software includes security functions where operations are limited for the individual user, which ensures data reliability.
The Shimadzu UV-3600 is compatible with a wide range of optional accessories including large, multi-purpose sample compartment or an integrating sphere attachment that enables the measurement of solid samples. The ASR-series absolute specular reflectance attachments, can be used to perform absolute specular reflectance measurements with a high level of precision. In addition, a thermoelectrically temperature controlled cell holder or a microscopic cell holder can be installed and used in order to handle a wide range of measurement applications.

Shimadzu UV-3600 compared to other instruments

Even though the Shimadzu UV-3600 maintains some features of previous models, it is still a huge upgrade from previous Shimadzu spectrophotometers. The Shimadzu UV-3600 features a wider wavelength range than the Shimadzu UV-2700. Shimadzu UV-3600 is not only a huge upgrade in relation to previous Shimadzu models, as the instrument also beats its competitors on several parameters. Shimadzu UV-3600 also beats Agilent Cary 4000 and PerkinElmer LAMBDA 850+ on wavelength range.
