FS5 Spectrofluorometer Combined with Cryostat Transforms Sample Measurement Capabilities


Edinburgh Instruments, a leading global supplier of fluorescence spectrometers, has combined its FS5 Spectrofluorometer with a liquid nitrogen cryostat to achieve a range of significant sample measurement capabilities with a single click.

When combined with the cryostat, the FS5 enables users to:

·     Measure the spectral properties of a sample at any temperature from 77 – 500 Kelvin, ideal for phosphorescence or delayed fluorescence measurements where samples are sometimes frozen at liquid nitrogen temperatures in order to preserve the fragile triplet state. This enables sample measurement and analysis that is not otherwise possible. 

·       Make automated three dimensional measurements in order to produce temperature dependant maps of excitation, emission, synchronous scans, phosphorescence decays and fluorescence decays

·       Measure samples of different states including solid crystals, thin films, powders and liquids using a variety of sample holders.

Outstanding 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 its class, utilising 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.



About Edinburgh Instruments www.edinst.com


Formed in 1971, Edinburgh Instruments were formed as the first spin-out from Heriot-Watt University and the first private company on Britain's first University "Research Park”.



Edinburgh Instruments (EI) is located in purpose built 12,800 sq.ft. facilities just outside Edinburgh, where it employs over 65 people. The company is involved in the development, manufacture and sale of a wide range of high technology products. Product ranges include lasers, analytical spectrometers and accessories supplied by the Photonics Division and gas detection and monitoring products supplied by the Sensors Division.


EI has an extensive global distribution network and has a highly prized reputation for the delivery of high quality, accurate instrumentation together with one to one customer service support.


In February 2013 Edinburgh Instruments Ltd was acquired by Techcomp Europe Group Ltd.
