Wide dynamic range greater than 6.5 orders of magnitude

Highest sensitivity in its class (8500:1 (RMS), band width 5 nm)

Fastest spectral scanning available (60,000 nm/min)

Installation included

Simplicity and Ease-of-Use

The JASCO FP-8500 Fluorescence spectrometer is designed to allow even first time users to collect data with confidence.

PC control with Spectra ManagerTM II software


The Spectra Managerâ„¢ II software, the latest version of JASCO's innovative cross-platform spectroscopy software, is compatible with Windows 7 Pro (32- and 64-bit configurations) and the Windows 8.1 operating systems.

See the Spectra manager

 Standard measurement programs for both interfaces:

  • Spectra measurement: 5 different types. Luminescence, emission, excitation, synchronous and single beam.

    Quantitative analysis: two photometric modes and three quantitation methods.

    Absorption-transmission: Measurement of transmission or absorbance (requires FUV-803 cell block.

  • Time course: Measurement of temporal changes at a fixed wavelength with a choice of time intervals.

    Fixed wavelength: Measurement of fluorescence at up to four Ex and Em wavelengths.

    3-D spectra: This function can be used to graphically display the fluorescence characteristics of the sample.

 Features of JASCO FP-8500 Fluorescence Spectrometer

  • Auto gain
    The signal/noise is optimised throughout the scan range by using the Auto-Gain which automatically adjusts the gain due to fluorescence intensity.

    Auto sensitivity control
  • This function of JASCO Fluorescence Spectrometer allows the creation of a calibration curve for a wide concentration range without changing the measurement parameters.

    Auto cut off filter
  • This enables spectra to be obtained without the peaks that originate from higher order diffracted light.

    Phosphorescence measurements
  • A high-speed chopper for the FP-8500 offers phosphorescence spectrum measurements as well as advanced phosphorescent lifetime and quantitative analysis measurements. The liquid nitrogen sampling accessory can be added for additional flexibility.

 Highest sensitivity, highest scan speed and highest accuracy

The high S/N (signal-to-noise) performance is achieved by a high throughput optical system and low-noise signal processing. High S/N allows for accurate fluorescence measurements including quantum yield calculations.  The high speed data acquisition enables comfortable measurement of 3-D spectra and phosphorescence lifetime. Fast data acquisition also enables short reaction times involved with stopped flow to be examined. The automatic filter for higher-order diffraction enables accurate luminescence spectra without artificial peaks.

Rapid 3D Spectra Measurement

3D spectra measurement is available for all models of the FP-8000 series. The fastest scan speed of 60,000 nm/min for the FP-8500/8600 offers 3D spectral measurement in the shortest time available for any instrument in this class. The analysis software offers a variety of processing methods to easily display the relevant data characteristics.


 Wide range of optional accessories for JASCO Fluorescence Spectrometer

The FP-8500 can be expanded to accept any optional accessories for temperature control and application requirements. Using FP-8500, the most suitable system can be configured for example to measure phosphorescence of samples or for quantum yield determination using the integrating sphere unit.
