Return Procedure

Before returning any instrument to PSI:

  • Make sure that the instrument is in fact faulty and has not just been set up improperly.
  • Contact PSI support(at)psi.cz before sending anything back. You will be given the RMA number, which must be clearly marked on the outside of the shipped container.
  • When sending the faulty device back to PSI, please pack it very carefully. Use a have duty box and lots of wrapping/foaming material.
  • If the returned instrument is damaged during shipment due to insufficient packing, PSI will have to charge the repair (or its part) as a non-warranty one.
  • If you have encountered a program failure, we would need a printed copy of any faults you have seen, including how to reproduce them. Include it into the return package along with your mailing address.
  • Include a copy of the Invoice on which the product was shipped to you.
  • All returns must be shipped prepaid. Unpaid packages will not be accepted.
  • In case of questions contact us by E-mail: support(at)psi.cz or shipping(at)psi.cz, by phone: +420 511 440 034, +420 511 440 032,+420 511 440 022, +420 388 440 046, or by fax: +420 511 440 901.
FAQs

  • Which Windows version is the FluorWin software compatible with?
  • It is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 (32 bit versions only).

  • What is the detection limit of PSI Fluorometers?
  • Sensitivity/detection limit of the fast fluorometer (FL 3500/F) is 1-5 ug/L of ChlA. Standard fluorometer (FL 3500/S) can be adjusted to detection limit 100-500 ng/L of ChlA (special type of protocol - multiple turnover flashlet sequence - must be used). High sensitivity fluorometer (FL 3500/HS) with integrating sphere can reach down to 1-10 ng/L of ChlA ( with multiple turover flashlet sequence protocol).

  • Does the Fluorometer control software run also under Windows 7?
  • Yes, FluorWin, control software for Fluorometers, runs under Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. Program compatibility with different Windows versions can also be checked at our web page http://psi.cz/downloads/

  • Just recently I have bought your fluorometer FL 3500/F and now I am thinking about its upgrade. Will the Oxygen Detector be a good choice?
  • Indeed, the Oxygen Detector with oxygen microelectrode is a very useful tool. In principle, it serves for detection of oxygen evolution. A user can program his/her own oxygen evolution protocols (using, for example, single turnover saturating flashlets). In such case, data from the oxygen probe are not temperature compensated and 2-point calibration for the absolute concentration must be done by a user.

  • I am looking for Qy, OJIP and FRR capabilities in an instrument that would offer 'normal' high sensitivity detection of fluorescein with a different LED for excitation and detection. Can the High-Sensitivity Fluorometer FL 3500/HS be used for such application?

  • Yes, this Fluorometer can be very useful for your experiments. It offers scripting language for protocol definition (light actions, measurements, external triggering-pumping, etc.) and next to the predefined protocols like Qy, OJIP or FRR there can be executed also your own scripts. The masuring compartment is designed as an integrating sphere(40 ml volume) and avalanche photodiode detectors.
