The Cary Eclipse fluorospec has measurement modes for fluorescence, chemiluminescence, bioluminescence, and time-resolved phosphorescence. Its Xenon lamp and fast data collection ability makes it a good instrument for kinetics experiments. 

Specifications include:

  • Wavelength range from 200 - 900 nm for both excitation and emission monochromators.
  • Wavelength accuracy of +/- 0.5 nm at 541.2 nm and +/- 1.0 nm from 200 - 900 nm.
  • Scan rate up to 24,000 nm/min, without peak shifts. Can scan the entire wavelength range in 3 seconds.
  • Xenon lamp, 80Hz, pulse width at half peak height ~2 us, peak power equivalent to 75 kW.
  • Room light immunity in fluorescence mode.
  • Can read micro-volume samples. Can fit reduced volume cuvettes as low as 5ul.
  • Temperature control from room temperature (~20C) to 60C.
  • Has single cell and 4 position multicell holders. The 4 position multicell holder is the default holder.
  • Has automated polarizer accessory.
