Shimadzu Europa
UV-3600 Plus & ISR-1503
New solutions for UV-VIS-NIR Measurements

thumbnail image: <font size=3>Shimadzu Europa</font><br />UV-3600 Plus & ISR-1503<br/>New solutions for UV-VIS-NIR Measurements

Shimadzu’s UV-3600 and its successor UV-3600 Plus ultraviolet-visible near-infrared spectrophotometer systems are the world's first to be equipped with three detectors. By combining a photomultiplier tube for the ultraviolet-visible region and an InGaAs and cooled PbS detector for the near-infrared region, the instrument delivers greatly enhanced sensitivity throughout the entire range of wavelengths measured.

Fluorescent gelators containing stilbene segments have been synthesized, characterised and used to detect TNT and RDX vapour by fluorescence quenching.

See, sniff, sip, swirl. That's how wine connoisseurs are schooled to judge a prize-winning wine, but researchers envisage more scientific criteria. Published in Rapid Communications in Mass Spectrometry, scientists from China and New Zealand worked together to devise a method and complementary database that enable the identification of a vast array of anthocyanins not possible hitherto.

Levels of therapeutic drugs, much like our caffeine fixes, constantly peak and dip as newly administered drug is both absorbed and broken down. What’s more, the level of circulating leukaemia-fighting tyrosine kinase inhibitors at its lowest—its trough—correlates strongly with its effectiveness, scientists have found. Accordingly, the monitoring of drug levels some time after administration aids clinicians in fine tuning their molecular armamentarium.
