HORIBA Scientific, specialists in measurement and analysis solutions for research and industry, and fluorescence solutions, has announced the debut of the Fluorolog-QM, the 4th generation Fluorolog.

The Fluorolog-QM is a modular, lens free, all reflective spectrofluorometer for perfect focus at all wavelengths from the deep UV (180 nm) to the NIR (5,500 nm).

Fluorolog-QM features a guaranteed sensitivity specification at 32,000:1 signal to noise ratio for the Raman band of water using the FSD (Square Root) method.  It also offers focal length monochromators at 350 mm for single monochromators, and 700 mm for double monochromators, for the ultimate in stray light rejection. The Fluorolog-QM aims to let you detect the lowest possible concentrations of fluorescence.

The instrument is controlled with HORIBA’s newest fluorescence software, FelixFL, a comprehensive software platform for all acquisition and analysis of spectral and time-resolved data.

Combined with up to 4 light sources, up to 6 detector options, and sample handling accessories, Fluorolog-QM can be enhanced to suit a broad range of luminescence research applications. These can range from a simple steady state configuration with a single light source and single cooled PMT housing, to the largest most versatile configuration with four different light source options and six different detectors, all connected to the same instrument and all controlled automatically with FelixFL software. The Fluorolog-QM delivers steady state, spectral and time resolved photoluminescence performance from 180 to 5,500 nm.

The modular design of the Fluorolog-QM is intended to provide the versatility to adapt a system to new fluorescence enhancements and accessories, as projects expand or funds become available.

The list of accessories for the Fluorolog-QM can expand capabilities and performance. These include PLQY integrating spheres for UV to NIR PLQY, polarizers, sample holders, Peltier cuvette holders, microliter sample cuvettes, Dewars, temperature baths, cryostats, microscopes and much more.
