Vibrational Circular Dichroism Spectrometer

JASCO has developed the FVS-6000 high performance VCD (Vibrational Circular Dichroism) spectrometer and VFT-4000 Vibrational Circular Dichroism (VCD) attachment with the most advanced DSP electronics and auto-alignment mechanisms.

 The FVS-6000 not only allows you to easily obtain fingerprint VCD spectra, but also has several unique features such as a measurement range extension option of 4000-750 cm-1. Since the CD signals in the infrared region are one or more orders of magnitude lower than ECD signals in the UV-Vis region, high sensitivity and stability are required for a VCD spectrometer. The FVS-6000 is the VCD spectrometer of choice for highly sensitive VCD measurements.

The VFT-4000 is a VCD attachment for the FT/IR-4000/6000 FT-IR spectrometers, developed for measuring vibrational circular dichroism in the infrared region. The VFT-4000 can be used to obtain very useful information for the optical activity of carbohydrates and provide tertiary structure identification of chiral molecules. The VFT-4000 can cover a wide spectral range (4000-750 cm-1), enabling measurement of OH and NH bands. Detectors can be easily exchanged with no manual alignment, and optical filters can be switched by a PC-controlled 6-position filter wheel. Read more about our FT/IR Jasco FT/IR

JASCO is the first manufacturer to develop a powerful, cross-platform software package, “Spectra Manager”, for controlling a wide range of spectroscopic instrumentation. Spectra Manager II software offers quick and easy VCD data acquisition and analysis. Theoretically calculated VCD intensities from a commercially available calculation software can be plotted as simulated spectra to be compared with the experimental data for further tertiary structure analysis of molecules.

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:
