Optical Spectroscopy

Over many years, JASCO’s spectroscopy product line continued to expand to include virtually every type of optical spectroscopy,
he current product areas include the following

  • Circular Dichroism (electronic and vibrational)
  • Circularly Polarized Luminescence
  • Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR)
  • UV/Visible and Near Infrared
  • Polarimeters
  • Fluorescence
  • Dispersive Raman
  • FT-Raman
  • Dissolution Systems
  • Near Field Optical
  • Ellipsometers


HPLC was introduced in the early-1970’s, JASCO’s experience in optical systems resulted in the development of excellent chromatographic detection systems; and, over time, complete HPLC systems. In 1985, JASCO launched one of the first commercial packed-column supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) systems, including the renowned dynamic back-pressure regulator. In 2005, JASCO was one of the first companies to develop an ultra high performance LC system (UHPLC). The current range of chromatography products includes the following:

  • Supercritical Fluid Chromatography and Extraction Systems (Analytical and PreparativeCircularly Polarized Luminescence)
  • UV-Visible Diode-array Detectors
  • UHPLC – Ultra High Performance Liquid Chromatography Systems
  • Variable Wavelength/Scanning Fluorescence/Chemiluminescence Detectors
  • HPLC – Analytical, Semi-Preparative and Preparative
  • Refractive Index Detectors
  • Variable Wavelength/Scanning UV-Visible Detectors
  • Chiral Detectors — Optical Rotation (ORD) and Circular Dichroism (CD)

Over the last nearly 60 years, JASCO has grown into a respected global supplier of high performance analytical instruments, operating in 57 countries throughout the Americas, Asia, Europe, Oceania, and the Middle East. We continue to strive to develop the best technologies and solutions for the scientific community.
