The P-2000 is an excellent instrument to study the optical activity of inorganic and organic molecules and materials and is widely used in the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
The P-2000 offers a response speed as fast as 6° per second to provide reproducible data for each measurement with a resolution of 0.0001°. The accuracy of the Polarimeter is ±0.002 (up to 1°). Its wide dynamic range of up to ±90° enables the system to measure chiral compounds over a broad range of concentrations. The measurement modes that the P-2000 polarimeter could perform include Optical Rotation, Optical Specific Rotation, Concentration, Sugar Scale Z, Brix Purity, and Optical Purity.
Our P-2000 is equipped with both a Na and Hg lamp with 6 interface filters for wavelengths 365, 405,436, 546, 578, 589 nm. The automatic light source switching mirror allows for simple experiment setup. We also have two cylindrical glass cells (10 mm x 100mm and 3.5 mm x 100mm) that can be borrowed while onsite.
