Features

Probe Drum Lab-in-a-box is the Swiss army knife of the chemistry / life-science research lab.

UV/vis, fluorescence and static light scattering

Probe Drum uses a sensitive and lightning-fast CCD-spectrograph. Several full spectra time-points can be recorded per second.

For UV/vis absorbance a high repetition rate flash is used. For fluorescence excitation 12 different LEDs are used. The static light-scattering mode uses a narrow red laser.

Nanoliter titration system

The titration system has a resolution of 20 nl with a 250 µl easily replaceable syringe. An electrode for titration feedback (pH, conductivity, ion concentration) can be attached. Temperature control and magnetic stirring is standard.

Temperature control

The temperature control system controls the temperature of the sample, rather than the temperature of the sample holder. Calibrated against a NIST traceable reference to 0.1 °C accuracy. One-way and two-way temperature titrations.

Standard cuvettes for maximal flexibility

Minimum sample volume is 800 µl when using titration and electrode, 400 µl without electrode and 50 µl without electrode and stirring. No special cuvettes are needed to facilitate a stirring bar.

This will give you a thorough, multidimensional analysis of your sample, with respect to the chemical environment as well as temperature. The requirement on your sample is that it is fluid, and contains an appropriate optical indicator: a naturally present chromophore or an added optical molecular probe.

Fiber-less construction

Probe Drum Lab-in-a-box is designed without any atten­uating fiber-optics. This gives the ­CCD-­spectrograph a sensitivity normally only achieved with a photo multiplying tube (PMT) setup.

Autolight for optimal S/N

In UV/vis absorbance mode the instrument uses a proprietary feature called Autolight to ensure that the optimal light level is used for the preferred detection range. This gives the best use of the detectors dynamic range and reduces noise to a minimum.

Virtual detectors

Four different optical features can be measured for every data point using virtual detectors. It may be absorbance, fluorescence, scattering or any combination of these.

Powerful experiment software

The experiment software is powerful yet easy and intuitive to use. Calculated data is presented in real time during the experiment. Failed experiment can be detected and aborted immediately and experiments can be terminated when no more change is observed.

Streamlined data handling

Probe Drum Lab-in-a-box can generate large quantities of data. To analyze, reduce data complexity and optimize the workflow, we supply a powerful data viewing software. Examine spectral data as well as metadata for every measurement point and then extract and calculate different kinds of sequential data plots.

This will give you a thorough, multidimensional analysis of your sample, with respect to the chemical environment as well as temperature. The requirement on your sample is that it is fluid, and contains an appropriate optical indicator: a naturally present chromophore or an added optical molecular probe.
