Details

Chiroptical spectroscopy has become one of most important techniques for the characterization of biomolecules, determination of absolute configuration, and stereochemical analysis. The new JASCO J-1500 is designed to meet the most demanding of CD applications. The performance level is unparalleled, and the layout is suited for adaptation to a variety of different sampling methods. The new Simultaneous Multi-Probe (SMP) acquisition allows parallel readouts of HT voltage on the PMT, absorbance, and CD.
