Ocean HDX Spectrometer Plays a Critical Role in Virus Detection
The Ocean HDX sets a new bar for low-light performance in an amazingly compact spectrometer form factor. Common fluorophores such as fluorescein and its derivatives can be further complexed, so they become fluorescent only when bound to the targeted genetic segment. The most common approach for this type of trace-level fluorescence is steady-state broadband spectroscopy, which is well-served by the Ocean HDX spectrometer. Proprietary internal baffling and other optical design triumphs allow fluorescence detection at levels previously only attainable on much larger and more costly systems.
The Ocean HDX spectrometer uses a superior optical bench design, optimized components and precision engineering to maximize optical resolution, increase throughput, reduce stray light and maintain thermal stability for integrated, industrial and research applications. HDX has a back-thinned CCD array and “High Definition Optics” design to deliver an exceptional level of spectral performance for a compact, UV-Visible spectrometer. Ocean HDX uses X-Platform Electronics to enhance communication capabilities, with powerful onboard storage and processing functions. Store up to 50,000 spectra and take advantage of onboard averaging to capture more spectral data in less time. Communication options include USB, Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi, AP Wi-Fi and RS-232.
Ocean HDX is well suited for research applications, integration into biomedical instrumentation, and QC functions in industrial settings. Outstanding unit-to-unit repeatability ensures measurement consistency across multiple monitoring points on a process line or across multiple plant locations.
