Dual-FL combines a spectrofluorometer and spectrophotometer for simultaneous rapid collection of fluorescence and absorbance data
HORIBA Scientific's Dual-FL
September 5th, 2012
EDISON, NJ September 5th, 2012 – HORIBA Scientific, global leader in Fluorescence spectroscopy systems,
just launched their new Dual-FL, which combines the only CCD-based benchtop fluorometer with a built-in UV-VIS spectrophotometer.
HORIBA Scientific addressed the need for speed when collecting spectral data and complete excitation-emission matrices(EEMs).
Dual-FL features spectral rates as fast as 80,000 nm/s, and acquires EEMs up to a 100 times faster than any other instrument.
Withits sensitive cooled, back-illuminated CCD detector for rapid collection of emission spectra, and an excitation double
monochromator for superiorstray light rejection, the Dual-FL has Signal to Noise greater than 20,000:1RMS. The simultaneous
absorbance data can be used to correct inner-filtereffects in measurement of high concentration samples, eliminating the needfor
time consuming, laborious dilutions. Of course, the Dual-FL can alsobe used as a stand-alone UV-VIS, meeting spectrophotometer
test specs likethe USP.
Dual-FL is a breakthrough instrument that allows unparalleled speed and ease of use for fluorescence spectroscopy, with the added
bonus of meeting all of a lab’s UV-VIS needs.
The Dual-FL is currently available. Foradditional information on the new Dual-FL, please go to
