Jasco MSV-5000 Series UV-Visible/NIR Microscopes

The MSV-5000 Series UV-Visible/NIR Microspectrometers can be used for a broad range of applications including the measurement of transmittance/reflectance spectra, band gap, film thickness, evaluation of the optical characteristics of functional crystals and color analysis of microscopic samples. The MSV-5000 series includes 3 different configurations for UV-Visible/NIR microscopy.

A microscopic spectrophotometer system providing transmittance/reflectance measurements of a microscopic sample area with a wide wavelength range from ultraviolet to near infrared.

MSV-5100 UV-Visible Microspectrometer

The MSV-5100 is a UV-Visible microscope with a wavelength range of (200-900 nm).

MSV-5200 UV-Visible/NIR Microspectrometer

The MSV-5200 includes a Peltier-cooled PbS detector with variable spectral bandwidth,  wavelength range of (200-2700 nm).

MSV-5300 UV-Visible/NIR Microspectrometer

The MSV-5300 uses an InGaAs detector to obtain optimized NIR measurements, wavelength range of (200-1700 nm).

System Features

A PC-controlled objective carousel can be used to select any of the available 10X, 16X or 32X cassegrain objectives in combination with a standard optical zoom feature to provide enhanced video imaging of the sample using a high-resolution CMOS camera. Options include binocular viewing, polarized observation and refractive objective lenses.

Wide Spectral Measurement Range

The microscope system includes wide-band cassegrain objectives for high throughput transmittance/reflectance measurements continuously from 200 to 2700 nm (MSV-5200).

Scanning Dispersive Optical System

The optical system uses a precision double-beam scanning monochromator, it includes all of the features of a research grade scanning UV-Visible/NIR spectrophotometer with selectable spectral band width for variable spectral resolution as well as selectable circular apertures and an adjustable rectangular aperture for sample area discrimination for measurement through the microscope.

Polarization Measurement

An automated Glan-Taylor polarizer system (standard) provides polarization measurements in combination with the optional automated polarization analyzer.

Automatic XYZ Stage

The optional automated stage enhances the operation performance of the system especially for mapping and multi-point measurements.

Spectra Manager™ Suite

Spectra Manager™ Suite, the cross-platform control and analysis package for all JASCO spectroscopic instruments, offers quick and easy data acquisition and analysis.


At Kovalent we strive to establish and develop long-term partnerships with our customers. When we use the word “partnership” we mean that Kovalent becomes an integral part of our customers’ projects, where we are expected to fully understand their application needs. We aim to make Kovalent our customers’ first and natural choice, and this ambition permeates our entire organisation from initial contact to finished and delivered product.

Genetec is a member of the same family of companies as Kovalent. Both companies share the same set of values and are in many ways integrated with each other. The main difference between the two companies are their products. Kovalent is involved in system solutions including instrumentation and Genetec is mainly working with consumables. The focus of Genetec is chromatography accessories. You are welcome to visit their state of the art web shop: genetec.se
