New Fluorescence Spectrometers Accurately Analyse a Broad Range of Sample Types

Feb 04 2019

PerkinElmer, Inc have announced the launch of its FL 6500™ Pulse Xenon and FL 8500™ Continuous Wave Fluorescence Spectrometers. The instruments enable industrial companies, universities, government, contract and pharmaceutical laboratories to analyse a diverse range of sample types, to meet growing research or evolving compliance requirements. When used together, these create a comprehensive fluorescence spectrometer solution for research and commercial laboratories to handle a variety of application challenges.

The FL 8500 fluorescence spectrometer uses a high performance Xenon continuous wave excitation source with PerkinElmer optics for high sensitivity measurements, at scan speeds up to 60,000 nanometers. It can be configured for a range of applications, including material characterisation; industrial tracing and manufacturing R&D; agricultural and environmental analysis; along with analysis of LEDs, solar cells and organic electroluminescent materials.

The FL 6500 fluorescence spectrometer, which uses PerkinElmer optics and a Xenon pulse excitation source with variable power settings, is designed for testing samples that are susceptible to photo bleaching. Applications include: cell biology, molecular biology, immunology, enzymology and protein analysis, as well as thin coatings. Both instruments share the new Spectrum™ FL software that mirrors laboratory workflows for simple, streamlined method development and comprehensive data analysis in minutes. Optional interchangeable, plug-and-play accessories are auto-recognised by the software to further minimise downtime.

The intuitive software is also available in Enhanced Security (ES) to maintain Title 21 CFR Part 11 compliance and adhere to stringent data integrity requirements, preventing laboratories from incurring costly fines.

The new FL 6500 and FL 8500 systems include: improved signal to noise performance measurement for lower level analysis; better resolution to increase the number of spectral peaks that can be resolved; enhanced smart accessory interface for easy installation; fully-integrated thermal accessories to allow direct control of cuvettes for enhanced capability with molecular biology applications; PerkinElmer’s Radian™ proprietary instrument remote monitoring system.
