Circular Dichroism (CD) Spectrometer

New Additions to ANTEC’s Equipment Pool

The JASCO J-1500 Circular Dichroism (CD) Spectrometer and Prusa i3 MK3+ Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D Printer are now available to ANTEC users.

The CD spectrometer (pictured at left) performs measurements on the differential absorption spectra between left- and right-hand circularly polarized light in the range of 163-950 nm, and the 3D printer can be used for prototype manufacturing of parts that accelerate research activities.
