Jasco J-815

Circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy measures differences in the absorption of left-handed polarized light versus right-handed polarized light that arise due to structural asymmetry. The absence of regular structure results in zero CD intensity, while an ordered structure results in a spectrum which can contain both positive and negative signals.


  • Peltier element allowing temperature dependent measurements (5-85 °C)
  • stopped flow attachment (Biologic) for kinetics measurements
  • permanent magnet (2T) allowing to measure magnetic circular dichroism
