t2 Sport/8453Peltier-driven temperature-controlled cuvette holder for the Olis Upcycled HP 8453 Diode Array System
The t2 Sport/8453 is an inexpensive, temperature-controlled cuvette holder for a single cuvette. It is easy to mount in the open sample compartment of the HP (or Agilent) 8453 Diode Array UV-Vis spectrophotometer.
The t2 Sport/8453 is ideal for work in the biological range of 0 °C to 110 °C. To work at colder temperatures down to -15 °C, purge the unit with dry gas to prevent condensation. Questions? Quantum Northwest offers a complimentary downloadable guide to working with your benchtop spectrometer at high and low sample cuvette temperatures.
It is easy to operate the t2 Sport/8453 using the TC 1 Temperature Controller, included in the purchase price. The sample temperature, stirring speed, and temperature ramp rate may be controlled manually using the TC 1 menu control buttons on the front panel, or by using Quantum Northwest’s computer control software, T-App, available for purchase. If you use ChemStation to operate the HP 8452, you can simultaneously use T-App to control the t2 Sport/8453.
No matter how you choose to control the t2 Sport/8453, you will enjoy the power to capture absorbance spectra at precisely maintained sample temperatures, and to observe how sample absorbance changes with temperature. With the t2 Sport/8453, a wide range of Peltier-based temperature control is now available for your existing Diode Array UV-Vis spectrophotometer. Easily plan and execute experiments that were not previously possible.
Many experiments will benefit from the t2 Sport/8453 alone. If you have greater needs, our partnership with OLIS, Inc. of Bogart, GA can enable you to assemble a new system. Let OLIS upcycle the HP 8453 to capabilities far beyond those it had when new. Retire ChemStation and upgrade to OLIS SpectralWorks. This Windows 7/10 program includes software for 2D and 3D analysis of kinetic and equilibrium data. Achieve the full potential of your HP 8453 with OLIS and Quantum Northwest.
