    2. General Description 2. General Description GE Healthcare LKB Monitor UV-1 consists of an optical unit 2.1 Basic principle containing the flow cell, lamp, filter assemblies and preamplifiers, and a control unit containing the signal processing circuits. The two units are connected via a multi-core cable hardwired from the control unit to the optical unit.

    4. Operation 4. Operation The UV-1 can be operated at either 254 nm, 280 nm or 405 nm. 4.1 Choice of The choice of wavelength will depend on the spectral properties of wavelength both the eluent and the substances to be detected. Proteins and poly- pep-tides containing aromatic amino acids are usually best detected at 280 and 254 nm.

    5. Maintenance Cleaning with detergent: Remove the cell holder from the optical unit. Pump undiluted cleaning detergent through the cell for at least 2 hours. Rinse the cell with a) distilled water (100 ml) b) ethanol/distilled water (50% v/v, 100 ml) c) distilled water (100 ml) Replace the cell in the optical unit and reconnect the system to be monitored.
