Hitachi' s Superior Fluorescence Technology has created a new generation of fluorescence spectrometers.
F-7100 is the evolution of the robust and reliable F-7000 with the latest optical technology and improved analytical performance.
"Best-in-Class" Analytical Signal-to-Noise
2,500hr Long lifetime light source
Best-in-Class" Analytical Signal-to-Noise. 360 of S/N (P-P) and > 1,200 of S/N (RMS)
Increased sensitivity 1.5x compared to conventional instruments
Due to its enhanced sensitivity (1.5x higher), weak signals can be detected with very low noise levels.
An example of the high sensitivity analysis for fluorescein is shown. The F-7100 detected fluorescence in the order of 1x10-13 mol/L (sub-picomol) compared with a blank sample (purified water); a useful calibration was obtained in the ultra-trace range.
Industry leading lamp lifetime
Light source with 5x*¹ longer lifetime compared to conventional instruments – lifetime of 2,500 hours*² –
With the application of the new Xe lamp and the improved lamp ignition power source, both luminance and the lamp lifetime were increased.
Increased lamp lifetime reduces operating Cost-of-Ownership and instrument service time.
High-Speed Scan at 60,000 nm/min – Example of reaction tracing with a spectrum
The fast-speed scanning enables users to carry out measurements that have been difficult with conventional instruments. In this example, an isomerization process of coumarin in kerosene was traced by spectrum measurement at 2-second intervals and displayed as a 3-D time-scan spectrum. This is a new function in the F-7000.
