t2x2 Sport/Shimadzu

Dual temperature control for Shimadzu UV-Vis-NIR Spectrophotometers
Product Overview

The t2x2 Sport/Shimadzu is an inexpensive, compact pair of cuvette holders providing independent Peltier temperature control for both the sample and reference cuvettes. Use it for temperature ranges of about -15 °C to 110 °C. It is ideal for most biological studies to observe absorbance spectra at precisely maintained temperatures. If necessary, run the sample and reference cuvettes at different temperatures. The t2 Sport/Shimadzu replaces the sample tray (base and front panel) of the spectrophotometer, with utilities brought conveniently to the front panel. Operate the TC 1/Single Temperature Controller using the menu button or through program T-App available from Quantum Northwest. When this unit is used in a Shimadzu UV-1800, a special version of T-App, called T-App(S) can be used to record absorbances from the spectrophotometer and plot them vs temperature.
