Experience the Precision Desired, in Any Situation
The compact UV-2600/2700 is a universal, research-
grade spectrophotometer that can be used in a wide
range of fields, and easily expanded to suit the

is capable of 8-Abs measurements, and
optimal for measuring low transmittance samples.
Validation software is provided as standard for both
instruments, so equipment performance can be easily
checked in daily inspections and when data accuracy
becomes a concern.
Single Monochromator UV-2600
Enables Near-Infrared Measurements
By installing the ISR-2600Plus two-detector integrating
sphere, the 300 nm to 1100 nm wavelength range of
conventional models can be extended to 1400 nm.
As a result, the UV-2600 can accommodate measurements
of solar cell anti-reflective films and polycrystalline silicon wafers.
Transmission Measurements of Polycrystalline Silicon Using the ISR-2600Plus
This is a transmission measurement of polycrystalline
silicon. Since the system is capable of measurements
to 1400 nm, the transmission characteristics of the band
gap region (near 1000 nm) are clearly evident.
Relative Diffuse Reflection Measurements of an Anti-Reflective Film Using the ISR-2600Plus
This is a reflection measurement of an anti-reflective
film. With relative reflection measurements, the system
can measure from the ultraviolet region up to the
near-infrared region, so the suppressed reflectance
in the visible region is clearly evident.
Double Monochromator UV-2700
Capable of 8-Abs Measurements
With the ability to make accurate transmittance
measurements to 0.000001 %( 1 part in 100 million),
the UV-2700 can be applied to evaluating the transmission
characteristics of polarization films. In addition, even
high-concentration samples can be measured without
diluting, contributing to a savings in power use.
The figure on the right shows the relationship between
the absorbance and the concentration of an aqueous
potassium permanganate solution.
Good linearity is evident to 8 Abs.
Spectral Comparison of Aqueous Potassium Permanganate Solutions
This spectrum is measured from an aqueous KMnO4 (potassium permanganate) solution. Unlike conventional models, this system is capable of high-level absorbance measurements.
the high precision of the UV-2700. In the diffraction grating
production process, new proprietary manufacturing methods
have been developed for Shimadzu's holographic technology.
By optimizing the etching process, we have successfully
manufactured extremely low stray light diffraction gratings while
maintaining high efficiency. With this newly designed optical
system equipped with a double Lo-Ray-Ligh monochromator,
the UV-2700 achieves unparalleled ultra-low stray light levels.
Even More Compact and User-Friendly
Reduced Size and Power Consumption
The installation space required for this system
has been reduced by about 28 % in comparison
to conventional models*, thanks to a brand new
compact design. In addition, the cooling fan is
built into the side of the unit, so that it can be
pushed back all the way to the wall. By placing in
contact with the wall, limited bench space can be
more effectively utilized. Furthermore, power
consumption has been reduced to 170 VA, a 10 %
energy savings that makes the system more

Validation Software Provided as Standard to Support GLP/GMP
Validation software assists with equipment performance
checks and the logging of such checks. By including it as
standard with the UV-2600/2700, easier instrument checks
are achieved. Equipment performance can be easily checked
in daily inspections and when data accuracy becomes a concern.
Inspection results can not only be printed, but also saved to a file, with results called up later for confirmation.
Inspection conditions for each periodic and routine inspection can be saved as a file, and then called up for use.
Equipment performance can be checked according to the performance indication standards specified in JIS K0115 "General rules for molecular absorptiometric analysis," as well as to Japanese Pharmacopoeia general test methods or various EP and USP inspection methods. (Inspection tools and reagents must be prepared separately.)
Multifunctional, User-Friendly UVProbe Software
is an all-in-one software package equipped with a multitude of functions to enable easy analysis from measurement to reporting. Additionally, functions for supporting GLP/GMP, such as security and audit trail functions, have been enhanced.
