Shimadzu Spectrophotometer UV-1900i
The UV-1900i is a double-beam UV-Vis spectrophotometer using Shimadzu's original LO-RAY-LIGH™ diffraction grating technology. In addition to its high optical performance, the UV-1900i features high resolution, low stray light, high reproducibility, and an ultra-fast scan function. It also has an easy-to-use interface on a color touch-screen display. The UV-1900i is designed to meet the needs of both high performance and usability.
Full Support for Pharmacopeia, GLP/GMP, FDA 21 CFR Part 11 and Other Regulations
Instrument Validation Functions Compliant with JP, USP, and EP
This instrument can not only run checks for nine JIS items, but also those stipulated in the Japanese Pharmacopoeia (JP), United
States Pharmacopeia (USP), and the European Pharmacopoeia (EP). Naturally, the hardware is also compliant with the specifications required by each Pharmacopeia. In addition, the check conditions can be saved. As a result, once the conditions are saved, checks can be performed easily just by calling them up as needed. Check results can also be saved.
Resolution of 1 nm, the Highest in its Class
In addition to achieving a resolution of 1 nm, the highest in its class, by using a monochromator with a Czerny-Turner mounting, the UV-1900i also features a compact, bright optical system. The instrument is more than capable of meeting the wavelength resolution required in the European Pharmacopoeia.
Improved Security Functions
An external control security function has been added to provide more support for compliance with regulations.
Three user authority levels, "Administrator", "Developer", and "Operator", can be set for instrument users.
Low Stray Light
Stray light is at 0.5 % max. (198 nm), twice as low as the performance level of the
UV-1800. With this stray light reduction, accurate measurements are possible up to the vicinity of 2 Abs even in the ultraviolet region. In addition, high-concentration samples can be quantified accurately.
The figure on the right is a calibration curve for acetic acid, created with absorbance at 200 nm.
The correlation coefficient is 0.9997, and correct measured values are obtained even in the vicinity of 2 Abs. Linearity will be lost in the high absorbance region due to the stray light.
Spectra can be acquired as fast as 29,000 nm/min. Ultra-fast scan is effective in tracking chemical reactions in a short time. In addition to the absorbance change at specified wavelengths, spectra can also be acquired in a short time with the UV-1900i. Therefore, more detailed behavior can be investigated by observing spectra with the UV-1900i.
The figures below show the analysis of particle agglomeration process when salts are added to silver nanoparticles. Measurements of the 300 to 700 nm region were performed in ultra-fast scan mode. In addition to the decrease of absorbance at 400 nm and the increase of absorbance at 480 nm, the temporal changes of spectra can also be observed.
