Primary Training Contact

The Shimadzu UV-3600i UV-Vis-NIR Spectrophotometer incorporates the latest technology in optical components to achieve high sensitivity, high resolution, and an ultra-low stray light level. Measurement capability in the UV, Visible and up to 3,300nm in the near-IR region allows for characterizing liquid and solid samples.


  • Optical spectrum measurements (absorbance, transmittance, diffuse and specular reflectance) over a wavelength range of 185nm - 3300nm
  • Photometric analysis to determine concentration of a substance in a sample
  • Kinetics analysis to observe time dependent changes in optical properties
  • High sensitivity 3 detector system (PMT for UV and visible range, InGaAs and PbS for Near Infrared range)
  • High resolution, wide measurement range and ultra low stray light, using a high performance double monochromator
  • Integrating Sphere attachment (ISR-603) for Diffuse Reflectance measurements of solids, powders, and liquids
  • Specular Reflectance attachment for solids
  • Temperature controlled 8 cell micro cell accessory (0-110 degrees C) for absorbance or transmission of liquids
  • LabSolutions UV-Vis software package
  • Wavelength range: 185nm - 3300nm
  • Spectral bandwidth: 8 steps in UV/Vis region and 10 steps in near-infrared
  • Resolution: 0.1nm
  • Wavelength Accuracy: UV/Vis +/- 0.2nm, NIR +/- 0.8nm
  • Wavelength Repeatability: UV/Vis +/- 0.08nm, NIR +/- 0.32nm
  • Baseline Flatness: +/- 0.004 Abs (185-200nm), +/- 0.001 Abs (200-3000nm), +/- 0.005 Abs (3000-3300nm)
