CAMAG UV Lamp 4 dual wavelength, 254/366 nm, 2×8 watt.
The CAMAG UV Lamp is designed for use in a TLC laboratory and is likewise suitable for various other applications such as document forgery, counterfit detection or mineralogy.
Two types of UV light are required for inspecting thin-layer chromatograms:
Long-wave UV light 366 nm
Under long-wave UV light substances that ca be excited to fluoresce appear as bright spots, often differently absorbed, on a dark background. The sensitivity of this detection method increases with the intensity of the UV light and also as more visible light is eliminated.
Short-wave UV light 254 nm
Under 254 nm UV substances absorbing at that wavelength become visible, provided the TLC layer contains a fluorescent indicator, e.g. F254. These substances appear as dark spots on a bright background.
Key features of the CAMAG UV Lamp 4:
- Two UV tubes for illumination (1 x UV 254 nm & 1 x UV 366 nm, each 8W
- Convinient handling through one button operation for each UV tube
- Homogeneous illumination
- Improved user safety through tilt sensor and timer (automatic switch-off after 10 min)
- Dimension 412 x 76 x 38 mm
