Luma 40/920

Peltier-based temperature-controlled cuvette holder for the Edinburgh Instruments FL920 and OB920 Spectrometers
Product Overview

Use the Luma 40/920 as a cuvette holder upgrade to provide temperature control for the now discontinued FLS920 Fluorescence Spectrometer of Edinburgh Instruments. Use the Luma 40/920 for normal temperature ranges of -15 °C to +105 °C. Add a Windowed Jacket, purge with dry gas and run the temperature down to at least -40 °C. Purchase the extended temperature option and extend the range up to +150 °C or down to -50 °C. Fluorescence is sensitive to temperature and reliable measurements require the precise temperature control of the Luma 40/920. The Luma 40/920 may be controlled using the menu button on the front of the TC 1/Single controller or through program T-App available from Quantum Northwest. Fully integrated control through the Spectrometer is available from Edinburgh Instruments,.
