Circular dichroism

Jasco J-710 CD

 

Summary

The Jasco J-710 CD is a research grade instrument used for measuring the circular dichroism of compounds in solution, including small molecules, peptides and proteins.  The instrument was purchased in 1995 and upgraded in 2005 to a J-715 instrument, the highest level of firmware and software available for this series.  The system will accept a number of sample devices, but the default is a Peltier controlled thermostatted cell holder designed for standard 1 cm x 1 cm quartz cuvettes.  Spaces are included to accommodate smaller cuvettes.  The use of long path length liquid or gas cells requires the removal of the Peltier device and should only be done by CIF staff.

The instrument is located in 1240 Hach Hall.  Enquiries should be directed to Steve Veysey.  Phone 515-294-5805 (office).  Use "Booked" to reserve the instrument.  Reservations do not need to be approved.
