The ADP440+ is a single wavelength, high accuracy
polarimeter suitable for use in many applications, and is
especially suited for use in pharmaceutical
laboratories where compliance
New optics featuring a
‘no maintenance’ yellow
LED and interference
fi lter together with a
allows reading of samples
of up to 3.0 OD.
The instrument has both
angular and sugar scales
(ISS) and can be programmed
with user scales as well as
industry standard methods for
displaying concentration and specific rotation directly.
When used in the sugar industry, the ADP440+ may also form
the central hub of a purity system, providing the measurement
of a Saccharimeter. In the ‘purity mode’ the instrument will
calculate and display ‘sugar purity’ with Brix values being input
automatically from an RFM refractometer or via the simple
keypad. For rapid measurements, funnel and flow-through cells
are available and require the use of specially suited slotted lids.
Data handling is in accordance with GLP providing a record of measurement date, time, batch and operator numbers. A calibration record is also available to be displayed or printed. Data handling may also be configured in accordance with the technical requirements of FDA regulation – 21 CFR Part 11 with users being identifi ed and cleared by swiping an RFID tag across the instrument surface or by traditional keypad PIN entry.
Operation is very simple by way of four push buttons including scale and compensation selection, zero calibration and the displaying of optical density and temperature.
On-screen menus in English, French, Spanish or German are selectable. Temperature compensation can be achieved from a single sensor, which can measure either the temperature within the sample chamber or, when placed in the centre filling arm of the measurement tube, the temperature of the actual sample.
The instrument can be checked and calibrated using a quartz control plate by accessing the span facility in the setup menu. If a sample is too dark, the instrument will display an error message.
PC software provides remote control with functions including data logging and kinetic temperature experiment configuration. The software is provided free of charge and can be downloaded from our website. Validation (IQ/OQ/PQ) documentation is also available.
