High Accuracy Polarimeters Receive Update

Bellingham + Stanley is excited to announce the launch of the newly updated ADP600 Series digital polarimeters with temperature control.

The ADP600 Series of polarimeters are available as multiple, dual, or single wavelength models, and with the ability to measure optical rotation to 4 decimal places in the highly sensitive ultra-violet region. Of course, the ADP600 Series also caters for those wanting to measure in the more traditional visible spectrum. The recent addition of the ADP670 polarimeter adds a 633nm wavelength, equivalent to a helium neon laser line, to the lineup. 

It’s this capability of such a wide range of measuring abilities that makes the instrument particularly suited to scientists wishing to measure chiral compounds and other optically active substances in the chemical, pharmaceutical and food sectors.

Looks can be deceiving

Whilst the ADP600 may look familiar from the outside, internally there has been a complete overhaul with the temperature control method switching to Xylem’s patented XPC technology. This technology, first introduced in the ADP450 polarimeter, features interchangeable contact Peltier plates facilitating measurement at a stable temperature using Peltier control. This stabilises the temperature of any sample being measured, making for easy, compliant readings in the laboratory.

In fact, ADP600 Series polarimeters with XPC technology can stabilise the temperature of a sample at the pharmacopeia prescribed 20 or 25°C. As such, the ADP600 series meets all requirements of pharmacopeia for optical and specific rotation (precision, wavelength, temperature), including the ability to measure Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide at 325nm, where readings must be within 1% of readings of a USP Reference Standard of the same material.

All Bellingham + Stanley digital polarimeters come fitted with the latest firmware, meaning your touchscreen experience is not only intuitive but it’s compliant with a range of international standards including FDA regulation 21 CFR Part 11. ADP600 Series instruments are compliant with pharmacopeia (BP/EP/USP/JP) as well as several other norms including ASTM and AOAC methods.
