Introduction of TriSep™-2100LIF Detector
TriSep™ -2100LIF laser induced fluorescence detector manufactured by Unimicro Technologies, Inc. was first launched in 2004. With its patented designs in optical and mechanical structure, TriSep™ -2100LIF delivers an excellent performance in high sensitivity and versatility. Having designed in modular, TriSep™ -2100LIF is user-friendly.
Using a laser beam as the emission light source, TriSep ™ -2100LIF
performance in sensitivity with its unique optical designs. For example, as little as 10 -12M FITC can be easily detected with a signal-to-noise ratio above 10 (100μm ID capillary flowcell, 473nm DPSS laser at 10mW).
TriSep™-2100LIF provides a new choice for analytical chemists and biologists interested in trace analysis that requires high sensitivity. With an elegant design of mechanical structure, TriSep™-2100LIF can be coupled with CE, CEC, Capillary-LC, Micro-HPLC, and HPLC.

About Fluorescence and Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) detection
Fluorescence is the phenomenon in which absorption of light of a given wavelength by a fluorescent molecule is followed by the emission of light at longer wavelengths. The distribution of wavelength-dependent intensity that causes fluorescence is known as the fluorescence excitation spectrum, and the distribution of wavelength-dependent intensity of emitted energy is known as the fluorescence emission spectrum.
Fluorescence detection has three major advantages over other light-based investigation methods: high sensitivity, high speed, and safety. The point of safety refers to the fact that samples are not affected or destroyed in the process, and no hazardous byproducts are generated.
Sensitivity is an important issue because the fluorescence signal is proportional to the concentration of the substance being investigated. Whereas absorbance measurements can reliably determine concentrations only as low as several tenths of a micromolar, fluorescence techniques can accurately measure concentrations one million times smaller – at pico- and even femtomolar level. Quantities less than an attomole (<10 -18 mole) may even be detected.
Laser Induced Fluorescence detection technologies, using a laser beam to excite the fluorescent molecules, make unsurpassed sensitivity in chemical and biochemical assays. For example, with TriSep ™ -2100LIF Laser Induced Fluorescence Detector, as little as 10 -12 M FITC can be easily detected with a signal-to-noise ratio above 10 (100μm ID capillary flowcell, 473nm DPSS laser at 10mW).
