The ProStar 335 Diode Array
Detector is a completely new product designed and built by Varian, Inc.,
Melbourne to replace the current ProStar 330 Diode Array Detector. Since
the ProStar 335 shares much of the same hardware as the ProStar 325,
ordering additional parts and accessories will be simplified as this
reduces the number of extra parts between the two detectors.
- The ProStar 335 can be ordered
as a single array (microbore to analytical) or dual array (analytical
to preparative) for extended absorbance range.
- The ProStar 335 can monitor
all wavelengths simultaneously from 190 nm to 950 nm with a deuterium
lamp for the UV range or in the visible range with a quartz halogen lamp.
- The ProStar 335 has significantly
improved signal to noise for all applications compared to the ProStar
330. Against our competitors, Waters and Agilent, the ProStar 335 ranks
in the top for noise at ± 1.0 x 10-5 AU
- Programmable slit widths (1,
2, 4, 8, 16 nm) for optimizing noise or optical resolution.
- Data from the ProStar
335 can be collected via one of these 4 ways:
an Ethernet communication cable directly to the PC
an Ethernet communication cable through an Ethernet switch
an analog cable to the Star 800 MIB
an analog cable to the internal pump CIM
- The functions of the ProStar
335 are controlled by Galaxie CDS/WS or Star WorkStation through Ethernet
- Peak Purity Parameter calculations,
Multicomponent Analysis (MCA), and Spectral Library searches in Star
Workstation are performed with the use of PolyView2000 spectral processing
- Peak Purity and Spectral Library
searches in Galaxie.
