Edinburgh FS5 Spectrofluorometer

From single photons to a multitude of measurements

Edinburgh Instruments


The FS5 is designed to meet the highest measurement specifications in the research and analytical markets. To achieve optimal sensitivity, resolution, and acquisition speed, Edinburgh select only the optimal performance photomultipliers in temperature stabilised housings, and utilise an optical design that includes plane, spherical, toroidal, ellisoidal mirrors and optimised mirror coatings. The FS5 is truly unrivalled in its spectral performance and sensitivity.



  • Multiple detector ports in one integrated instrument, measure up to 1650nm and fluorescence lifetimes down to 25ps, in one instrument
  • >6,000:1 Water Raman SNR, high sensitivity allows for detection of very weak fluorescence signals.
  • Three detectors as standard, reference detector to correct for light source fluctuations, transmission detector for absorbance, single-photon couting (SPC) detector for ultimate sensitivity
  • Plug & Play sample modules, automatic sample module recognition and initialisation saves the user time and effort. Wide range of modules available for varied sample analysis
  • Live vdeo demonstration - contact us to arrange an online demonstration. We can accept your samples and talk you through the process as we run test measurements

Not only does this superior design guarantee the highest sensitivity and broadest wavelength coverage, but it has also been optimised for a small bright focus at the sample position. This is important for measuring small sample volumes and benefits many sample holder attachements like a plate reader, fibre launch optics mounting, titrators and sample positioners.


The standard FS5 has a number of upgrade routes that are unique in its class, including spectral range extension up to 1650nm, Fluorescence and Phosphorescence Lifetime measurement capabilities, polarisation/anisotropy and much more.
