Compared to absorbance methods, fluorescence sensitivity is tens to thousands times better - this means that you can analyze nanogram to picogram samples with great results.
Fluorescence can be used also to identify a specific molecule in a complex background. When the compound of interest does not exhibit natural fluorescence, functional group-specific probes may be used to label the compound and assist your research. The synchronous scanning mode allows mixtures of fluorochromes to be analyzed.
The personal computer directly controls the instrument for data acquisition and processing. The Windows friendly operating environment allows you to perform measurement, data processing, editing and recording in one continuous operation with a click of the mouse. Using the Copy Graph function, measurement data or spectra may be easily transferred to word processing or spreadsheet software for preparation of documents or additional calculations.
The essence of fluorescence analysis is sensitivity. The high throughput optical system in the RF-5301PC employs a blazed holographic grating, photomultiplier and digital signal processing to provide the highest level S/N ratio attainable.

High-speed scanning up to 5,500 nm/min allows you to measure a spectrum in seconds. In addition, a monochromator slewing speed of about 20,000 nm/min enables quick and easy setting of two or more wavelengths.
The sample compartment measures 140 mm wide, 170 mm deep and 140 mm high, enabling the use of micro cells, high-sensitivity cells, LC flow cells, etc. for a wide range of applications.
When the instrument is switched ON, operating conditions of the spectrophotometer are automatically verified. In addition, built-in noise level (SN ratio) and light source (Xenon lamp) usage features help maintain the instrument in its optimum condition, providing absolute confidence in the quality of the data.
