JASCO Corporation was founded in 1958 to provide the scientific community with optical spectroscopy products. Over the years the JASCO product line has grown to cover instruments used, not only in research but also for routine analysis applications in areas such as quality control, environmental analysis, and process control. The current Spectroscopy product line encompasses instrumentation for the following methods:
- UV/Visible and NIR
- Microscope Spectrophotomers
- FT-IR, microscope FT-IR and FT-Raman
- Dispersive RAMAN
- Portable Raman
- Portable FT-IR
JASCO is also the world leader in the field of Circular Dichroism Spectropolarimeters and Vibrational Circular Dichroism Spectrometers. With the introduction of HPLC in the mid-1970's JASCO's experience in highly sensitive and accurate optical systems led to the development of a series of chromatographic detection systems. Fixed and variable wavelength UV/Visible and Fluorescence detectors were introduced featuring excellent sensitivity and reliability in compact modules.
In order to offer complete HPLC systems JASCO developed a variety of novel solvent delivery systems as well as other accessories such as column ovens, autosamplers, and PC based control and analysis software. Today JASCO offers a wide variety of HPLC modules, accessories and analysis software. The new JASCO LC-4000 Liquid Chromatography series is designed to operate at pressures approaching 15,000 psi for either gradient or isocratic separations, providing researchers with a powerful tool when using the new generation of small particle columns. LC-4000 Series includes a versatile series of components offering unique flexibility to build systems for routine and specialised applications. LC-4000 features the widest choice of optical HPLC detector: UV, diode array, fluorescence, chemiluminescence, CD, chiral and refractive index detector. Finally JASCO’s modular Supercritical Fluid Chromatography and Supercritical Fluid Extraction platforms provide a low-cost, fast, green technology with reliable and worry-free performance for a wide variety of applications.
