Shimadzu UV-1601 UV-VIS Spectrometer

The Shimadzu UV-1601 UV-VIS spectrometer is used for transmission spectroscopy in the range from 190 nm to 1100 nm. There are two lamps used: a tungsten lamp that covers the region from 350 nm to 1100 nm, and a deuterium lamp that covers the region from 190 nm to 350 nm. The instrument can be used in a scanning spectrum mode, a kinetics mode, and a quantitative analysis mode. Data acquisition and processing is controlled through the Shimadzu UV-Probe software.


A Peltier temperature controller is available to heat or cool sample and reference cells while acquiring spectra.This accessory has a temperature range of 7 C to 60 C.

Persons needing to use the UV-VIS should contact Jim Windak for training,
