Software and Accessories

UVProbe is multifunctional, easy-to-use software supplied as standard with Shimadzu UV-VIS Spectrophotometers. When combined with CLASS-Agent, it provides powerful support for Part 11 compatibility.


Measurement modules with diverse data-processing and calculation functions

Kinetics measurement

Kinetics measurement

A kinetics (time-course) measurement mode is available in addition to spectral and photometric (quantitative) modes. Comprehensive data-processing functions are provided for each mode.

Free-format report creation

Free-format report creation

Free-format report creation

Reports can be created with a free layout of graphs and tables. The thickness and color of graph lines can be changed, and text and diagrams pasted. Finished layouts can be conveniently saved as templates.

GLP/GMP support functions

GLP/GMP Support

Audit-trail functions

Offers comprehensive GLP/GMP support functions, including security functions such as user authentication and authority settings, audit-trail functions for original acquired data and data processing history, and instrument log.

Connection to the optional CLASS-Agent software offers powerful support for FDA 21 CFR Part 11. Data acquired using UVProbe and calculated data can be automatically or manually registered for management in a database.

Security functions

When the security functions are enabled, an identification code and password are required when logging in. Advanced settings are available for the password. The functions assigned to each user can be restricted as well.

Audit Trail Functions

Data is stored in a file inside a directory structure. After calculations and other data processing based on original acquired data, the results are saved by creating new data inside the same file separate from the original data. The history log (user, date, operations) is also maintained inside this file.
Data History Function

If a change is made to measurement data, a history of this is added to the data.
To use these functions, UVProbe must be installed in Security mode or GLP mode.
