Bellingham and Stanley ADP440+ Polarimeter

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 with Pharmacopoeia is required.

New optics featuring a 'no maintenance' yellow LED and interference fi lter together with a photodiode detector 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.

High Resolution

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.
