Edinburgh Instruments is the name you turn to when you want to unlock the secrets of the most demanding applications in optical spectroscopy.
Our experience and expertise in instrumentation for fluorescence spectroscopy and laser flash photolysis spectroscopy is second to none, spanning decades with almost 1000 systems installed in universities and leading research laboratories worldwide.
We design and manufacture steady state fluorescence spectrometers, dedicated fluorescence lifetime spectrometers, combined steady state and lifetime spectrometers and laser flash photolysis spectrometers. We are leading in sensitivity specifications by detecting at the photon level, we have pioneered the technique of Time Correlated Single Photon Counting (TCSPC) in time resolved fluorescence spectroscopy and use multi-channel scaling (MCS) techniques to measure phosphorescence lifetimes at the quantum level. With a variety of detector and light source options we cover wavelengths from the VUV to the NIR.
The FS5 is a fully integrated steady state fluorescence spectrometer designed to meet the highest specifications in the research and analytical markets. Ultimate sensitivity, coupled with high speed data acquisition and ease of use, makes the FS5 the ideal plug and play analytical tool. The optical design is the best in class, utilizing specially selected optics to achieve the maximum in signal throughput. Using single photon counting techniques for the highest detection sensitivity, the FS5 delivers data you can trust with no need for training. The standard FS5 has a number of upgrade routes that are unique in its class.
The FS5 delivers reliable fluorescence excitation and emission spectra. Advanced, fluorescence tailored software enables 2D, 3D, contour and chromaticity plots.
So whether you need to measure excitation and emission spectra, quantum yields, kinetics, temperature and excitation-emission maps, or even phosphorescence and fluorescence lifetimes, the FS5 with its range of advanced accessories sets the new standard for fluorescence spectroscopy.
The modularity of our FLS980 gives users the flexibility to customize the instrumentation for their special experimental needs and the upgradability to stay on top of developing and changing research topics. Our systems are supplied with fully integrated hardware and software built into a single system. Our system operating software is user friendly, and at the same time handles all complex requirements of modularity and upgradability. The software also controls a large variety of sample holder and temperature control options, like plate readers, integrating spheres, cryostats, titrators, etc.
The LifeSpec series provides ultimate temporal resolution in time resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. This series is designed to accept most modern picosecond and femtosecond lasers and the fastest detectors on the market.
Measurements of fluorescence lifetime, which historically took many minutes or even hours to perform, can quite literally be done in the blink of an eye and fitted with up to 4 lifetimes. Our advanced software has a sophisticated library that enables analysis of complex decays to various models including global analysis, distribution analysis stretched exponential component analysis, Főrster kinetics, Micellar quenching kinetics and various anisotropy models. As with the FLS980, a large variety of sample holders and temperature control options are available.
The LP920 series is a modular laser flash photolysis system that enables users to reliably and accurately measure transient absorption either in spectral and/or kinetic mode. In kinetic mode a single detector is used and the transient kinetics can be resolved with highest accuracy. In spectral mode and image intensified CCD is used and the whole transient absorption spectrum can be acquired with a minimum of laser shots. The LP920 software handles all aspects of instrument control, including a large variety of pump lasers and OPOs. The software also enables data fitting, optionally with second order kinetics and global analysis.
