Axiom Analytical Announces Flexibly Coupled Diamond ATR Probe for use in Mid-IR Spectroscopy
Product News Mar 01, 2012
Axiom Analytical, Inc. has announced the availability of its DMD-270Fx Flexibly-Coupled, Diamond ATR (Attenuated Total Reflectance) Probe.
The new probe employs hollow flexible lightguides to provide coupling to a Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometer.
As a result, it provides flexibility without the drawbacks of solid core mid-infrared optical fibers, which include fragility, low throughput, and limited spectral response.
In contrast to the solid core mid-IR fibers, the hollow polymer lightguides used with the new Axiom probe provide full fingerprint region spectral coverage combined with high stability and durability.
Extreme chemical resistance is ensured by the use of a diamond ATR element along with Hastelloy construction and energized PTFE seals.
The new probe is the latest addition to Axiom Analytical’s comprehensive line of conventional and diamond tipped ATR probes that have found widespread use in applications ranging from chemical and pharmaceutical research to incoming inspection of raw materials and on-line process analysis.
These probes feature broad mid-IR spectral response, providing detailed quantitative analysis based on specific chemical functional groups.
