J-1500 Spectropolarimeter

The latest effort in the JASCO commitment to lead the field of Circular Dichroism.


JASCO proudly announces the new model J-1500 Spectropolarimeter, our latest Circular Dichroism spectrometer. Unparalleled optical performance and optionally available measurement modes are combined in a manner to make the J-1500 a true "chiro-optical spectroscopy workbench". Instrument control and data processing are handled effortlessly by our JASCO's user friendly and innovative cross-platform software, Spectra ManagerTM II. As an option, Spectra ManagerTM CFR provides secure access and compliance features for 21 CFR Part 11.


J-1500 is the most versatile investigation tool for a wide range of application requirements:

  • Protein folding studies
  • Protein conformational studies
  • DNA/RNA interactions
  • Enzyme kinetics
  • Purity testing of optically active substances
  • Quantitative analysis of pharmaceuticals
  • Natural organic chemistry
  • Biochemistry and macromolecules
  • Rapid scanning (time resolved) experiments

When combined with its accessories, J-1500 offers the possibility of performing a broad range of experiments.

  • Circular dichrosim
  • UV-Vis Absorbance
