Bruker Optics Expands its FT-IR Product Line with New Spectrometers
Product News Feb 28, 2007
Bruker Optics introduces several new FT-IR spectrometers at Pittcon 2007. Bruker Optics manufactured its first Fourier-transform infrared spectrometer in the early 1970s and since then has become well renowned for its commitment to supplying instrumentation with unmatched capabilities.
• The new ALPHA is said to be the world’s smallest entry level FT-IR spectrometer, and only occupies about as much bench space as a letter size piece of paper. It is an entry level, easy to use FT-IR spectrometer, ideal for academic teaching and quality control labs. The ALPHA can be used for raw material identification of unknown materials as well as quality assurance for various industries, including pharmaceutical, plastics and chemical.
• The new MATRIX™-MF is a Mid-IR laboratory and process spectrometer with a built-in fiber optic multiplexer. It is designed for the study and monitoring of chemical reactions using in-situ sampling probes. The new MATRIX-MF is well-suited for pharmaceutical Process Analytical Technology (PAT) applications.
• The new VERTEX™ 80 is the latest edition to the VERTEX family of research grade FT-IR spectrometers. It can offer high resolution scanning, a very wide spectral range, and the sampling flexibility needed for the most demanding research applications.
• The new IFS 125/M is mobile FT-IR spectrometer. It is designed specifically for gas phase applications, for example the study of the effects of atmospheric gases on global warming.
