High Specificity Laboratory Equipment KALSTEIN Vs. SHIMADZU

December 6, 2023by Kalstein

KALSTEIN, as a notable manufacturer in the laboratory equipment sector, represents a safe choice for professionals who are looking to purchase high-performance scientific equipment. The KALSTEIN model YR01863/YR01864/YR01865 stands out in the market for its double-beam system (1200 lines/mm), which by itself is more efficient compared to other excellent models, such as the SHIMADZU UV-1780.

Another point to highlight is the precision and extension of the wavelength range offered by KALSTEIN equipment, with a spectrum that ranges from 190 to 1100 nm. This character aligns equally with the SHIMADZU UV-1780 model, but it’s in the repeatability of the wavelength where KALSTEIN gains ground with a repeatability of ≤0.1nm. In addition to this, these KALSTEIN models have a photometric accuracy of ±0.2%T(0-100%T), surpassing the margin of ±0.3%T thus showing a considerable improvement.

Optical Analysis with Lesser Interference and Screen Resolution and Detection System

In every laboratory analysis, reducing the likelihood of incorrect readings is critical. Luckily, KALSTEIN models have a scattered light interference capacity of ≤0.03%T@220nm,360nm, effectively reducing the possibility of erroneous data, compared to the SHIMADZU model, which has ≤0.05% (220nm NaI,360nm NaNO2).

The KALSTEIN model YR01863/YR01864/YR01865 comes equipped with a 320*240 Dots LCD screen, providing a clear and comfortable display for the operators. It also has a silicon photodiode detector that guarantees high-precision detection compared to the SHIMADZU model that offers a photodiode array detector. https://kalstein.ee/product/double-beam-uv-vis-spectrophotometer-c-yr01863-yr01865/
