Highest S/N performance
The high S/N (signal-to-noise) performance of the FP-8000 series is achieved by a high throughput optical system and low-noise signal processing.

Spectra of fluorescein solutions
Wide Dynamic Range using Auto-Gain and Auto-SCS
A wide dynamic range for luminescence measurements is obtained using the Auto-Gain and Auto-SCS features, automatically adjusting the detector sensitivity for optimum measurements.
Effective for fixed wavelength measurements and quantitative analysis, Auto-SCS makes it possible to create the calibration curve for a wide range of concentrations without modifying the instrument measurement parameters.
Calibration curve of fluorescein solutions
Collecting data with an optimized S/N throughout the entire scan range for spectra or time course measurements is obtained with ease using the Auto-Gain feature, automatically adjusting the gain due to fluorescence intensity.
Spectra of quinine sulfate solution
Automatic higher-order diffraction cut filter
The conventional method for removing higher-order diffraction artifacts from excitation/emission spectra involves selection and installation of the proper cut filters according to the scanning wavelengths. The automatic cut filter system of the FP-8000 series (option for FP-8200) selects the proper cut-off filters for spectral measurements to obtain spectra without higher-order diffraction interference.

A high-speed chopper for the FP-8300, 8500 and 8600 instruments offers phosphorescence spectrum measurements as well as advanced phosphorescent lifetime and quantitative analysis measurements.
Luminescence spectra of cooled Benzene
The luminescence spectra of benzene measured with 255 nm excitation at 77 K. The blue trace in the figure is the normal emission spectrum; the red trace is the phosphorescence spectrum measured using a 5 msec delay.
IQ Accessories (automatic accessory identification)
The FP-8000 IQ accessories utilize a non-contact RFID sensor for automatic recognition by the control software. Accessory information, including accessory name and serial number, is retrieved and saved in the spectral data file. The IQ Start function can be programmed to automatically select a specified control program for simplified sample measurements.
