The following pages contain a quick review of different Hitachi instruments. Click on the links on each instrument to learn more about it:


  • Hitachi UH4150 
    The Hitachi UH4150 builds on the previous model, Hitachi U-4100, which is an expert in solid-phase spectrophotometry. The Hitachi UH4150 features a higher throughput than Hitachi U-4100. 

  • Hitachi UH5300
    The Hitachi UH5300 uses a long-life xenon flash lamp, and features double-beam optical system. The level of performance of the Hitachi UH5300 allows for highly accurate data to be obtained by the users. 

  • Hitachi UH5700
    The Hitachi UH5700 achieves both high measurement precision and high throughput. In addition, the Hitachi UH5700 handles the UV, Vis, and NIR regions, making the instrument useful for many purposes.  


Some of the Hitachi instruments are presented in the following:

Hitachi UH5300

The Hitachi UH5300 uses a long-life xenon flash lamp. This light source results in lower operation cost. In addition, the Hitachi UH5300 uses a double-beam optical system that ensures extended periods of data stability compared with the single-beam optical system. 

Hitachi UH5300 also offers a new type of operation in laboratories. Operation is possible by use of tablet terminals or PC. In addition, remote control through wireless communication is also possible with the Hitachi UH5300 spectrophotometer.

Hitachi UH5700

The Hitachi UH5700 is an UV-Vis-NIR spectrophotometer that uses a continuously variable slit in the NIR region, in which the slit automatically widens when measuring low quantities of light and narrows when measuring large quantities of light. The spectrophotometer achieves low-noise measurements.

In addition, the Hitachi UH5700 achieves best-in-class levels of low stray light and high photometric range using a Czerny-Turner mounted single-monochromator and a newly developed grating.
