Axiom Analytical Announces a New High Transmission ATR Probe
Product News Jan 06, 2016
Axiom Analytical, Inc. has announced the availability of its new DPR-212 ATR probe. The new probe offers similar advantages to the Company’s DPR-210 ATR probe but in a straight, 30 cm long configuration designed to provide optical transmission of over 20 %.
The earlier DPR-210 includes a right angle joint which allows it to be inserted vertically into a sample container when mounted in a traditional spectrometer sample compartment.
In contrast, the straight DPR-212 is ideal for use with instruments such as the Bruker Alpha or Thermo-Fisher iS Series which allow the probe to point straight down out of the sample compartment. When used with a more traditional instrument, it can be inserted into a sample vessel through a suitable sealing fitting.
In common with the DPR-210, the new probe offers a selection of interchangeable ATR materials, such as ZnSe, ZnS, AMTIR-1, and Germanium. This selection provides coverage of the full mid-IR fingerprint spectral region while allowing the selection of the optimum material for a given chemical system. The use of metallic internal lightguides provides a high degree of performance stability and long term reliability.
