WALTHAM, Mass.— Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. said it has launched a new product that enhances the molecular study of certain materials.
Thermo Fisher Scientific is offering a Mercury telluride cadmium infrared detector for the Rheonaut Module, what the company calls the world's first ready-to-use molecular rheology solution. It enables engineers, scientists and chemists who use rheometry to study flow properties of materials to analyze the molecular structure of rapidly changing materials such as ultraviolet-curing and superglue materials.
The Rheonaut module pairs rheological analysis from the Thermo Scientific Haake Mars rheometer with infrared spectroscopy, enabling users to collect and analyze spectroscopic and rheological information simultaneously from the same sample.
The company claims the MTC detector delivers four to five times faster spectra collection and a 10 to 100 fold improvement in signal-to-noise ratio compared to deuterated triglycine sulfate detectors, also available for the Rheonaut module.
