December 24, 2019 | News & Notices Release of Six New UV-i Selection Brand UV-VIS Spectrophotometer Models Capable of Automatic Pass/Fail Determination and Continuous Analysis of 360 Samples
On December 24th, Shimadzu Corporation simultaneously released six new UV-VIS spectrophotometer models under a new UV-i Selection brand. UV-i Selection brand models are equipped standard with LabSolutions UV-Vis analytical data system for UV-VIS spectrophotometers (released April 2018). By including highly user-friendly operability, the ability to automatically analyze multiple samples continuously, and other features for satisfying a wide variety of customer needs in a single highly expandable design, the systems are well-suited for use in a wide range of fields, including academia, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals.
The six models in the UV-i Selection series are the UV-1900i, UV-2600i, UV-2700i, UV-3600i Plus, SolidSpec-3700i, and SolidSpec-3700i DUV. (The UV-1900i was released earlier on November 11.) The new brand is indicated by the letter “i,” which stands for “intelligence” (the intelligence to automatically determine whether samples pass or fail criteria, which relieves users from the tedium of repetitive quality control steps), “innovation” (innovative automatic measurement to improve operating efficiency), and “informatics” (improved data analysis efficiency and stronger data management functionality).
New Product Features - Common to All Models
1. Automatic Pass/Fail Determination for Improved Efficiency
Systems are equipped standard with a spectral evaluation function that can automatically determine whether data satisfies specified criteria. The function helps improve the efficiency of quality control operations by eliminating the manual data analysis steps otherwise required after spectra are acquired.
2. Automatic Measurement for Improved Operating Efficiency
By connecting an autosampler unit, the system can analyze up to 360 samples automatically (requires optional software). Used in combination with the spectral evaluation function, the entire process including pass/fail determination can be fully automated.
3. Improved Data Analysis Efficiency and Stronger Data Management
Data can be sent to an Excel spreadsheet in real time or simultaneously saved as a text file. That reduces the time spent sending data to separate software for data analysis. Also, Shimadzu’s LabSolutions software includes advanced security functionality for solutions compliant with electronic records and electronic signature (ER/ES) regulations.
New Product Features - UV-1900i
The UV-1900i can be either controlled via a computer or operated as a standalone system (independently without a computer connected). The following features are applicable when used as a standalone system.
1. Data Transfer Function
Up to 999 saved sets of data can be transferred (requires optional expansion memory). Consequently, data can be acquired or analyzed remotely from a location other than where the system is installed.
2. Wakeup Function
The wakeup function starts up the system at any specified time. Switching the power ON before the operator arrives at work avoids time spent waiting next to the system.
3. External Control Function
UV-1900i systems can also be controlled from other software, via the LabSolutions UV-Vis software included standard. That means specialized or combined systems that include the UV-1900i can be configured.
