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.
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 900 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.
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.
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.
