V-770 UV-Visible/NIR Spectrophotometer

The V-770 UV-Visible-Near Infrared Spectrophotometer is a unique optical design incorporating a dual-grating, dual-detector design to fully cover the wavelength range from 190 to 2700 nm (3200 nm option).


System Description

The V-770 UV-Visible-Near Infrared (UV-Vis/NIR) spectrophotometer features a monochromator with automatically exchanged dual gratings: 1200 lines/mm for the UV/VIS region; 300 lines/mm for the NIR region. A PMT detector is provided for the UV-visible region and a Peltier-cooled PbS detector is employed for the NIR region. Both gratings and detectors are automatically exchanged within the user selectable 800 to 900 nm range.

Operating Systems

Two user interfaces are available. The Spectra Manager™ II software, the latest version of JASCO's innovative cross-platform spectroscopy software, is now compatible with Windows 7 Pro (32- and 64-bit configurations) and the Windows 8.1 operating systems.

For simple and routine operation, the intelligent remote module (iRM) has been completely redesigned with a new look and feel, with a color LCD touch screen. Data can also be downloaded to a USB memory stick for portability or further PC data processing.

The V-700 Series has a growing list of software applications for both Spectra Manager II and for the iRM. If you have an application which you don’t see listed, please let us know as we may already have it or we can prepare an application designed specifically for your requirements.

Both of these interfaces allow full system control and advanced data processing. Spectra Manager CFR is the 21 CFR part 11 compliant version of software and is available as an option.

System Features

IQ Accessory and IQ Start

The IQ Accessory function provides automated accessory recognition with identification of the accessory within the method. The spectral data files include the accessory information and serial number while designated instrument parameters can be configured and loaded for optimum sample measurements. IQ Start together with the Start Button is used to immediately start a sample method for immediate access when making routine measurements.

Wide Wavelength Range from UV to NIR

The V-770 can measure the spectrum of a sample within the wavelength range of 190 to 2700 nm (3200 nm - factory option). The single monochromator design offers a higher energy throughput resulting in a better S/N ratio over the entire spectral range, even with narrow bandwidth settings.

Full Line of Accessories

A full complement of accessories is available for the V-700 series of UV-Visible-NIR spectrophotometers for virtually any biological, material science or routine QA/QC measurement. Some accessories are common across the V-700 Series and others are instrument specific. Refer to the instrument brochure for accessories specific to your desired instrument.

Options include a wide variety of liquid cell holders, micro and ultra-micro cell holders, flow cell units and accessories for solid samples. Advanced accessories, include automated cell changers, sippers, integrating spheres, automated and manual absolute reflectance accessories and programmable temperature control systems are available for any of the V-700 instrument systems.
