ADP400 Series are general-purpose single wavelength polarimeters suitable for sugar, food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries, use standard ICUMSA polarimeter tubes with a maximum length of 200 mm. Combined with a photodiode detector these technologies allow for the reading of samples of up to 3.0 OD at the commonly used sodium (589nm) wavelength. Instrument feature angular and sugar scales (ISS) and can be programmed with user scales as well as industry standard methods for displaying invert sugar, inversion (A-B) or when applying other factors such as tube length and concentration, Specific Rotation (or concentration when entering specific rotation). This flexibility makes them ideal for use within laboratories where compliance with Pharmacopoeia is required
ADP400 Series polarimeters have a resolution of 0.001 angular degrees (°A) and are capable of reading to an accuracy of ±0.010 °A. When working under laboratory controlled conditions, ADP400 polarimeters also offer excellent reproducibility of up to 0.002 °A.
Additionally an easy-to-use Methods system gives convenient access to popular measurement types including continual measurement of Optical Rotation, Specific Rotation, Concentration, Inversion, or our new “single-shot” measurement which gives a snapshot result at any given time.
