COLUMBIA, Md.—Shimadzu Scientific Instruments recently released its IRSpirit Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectrophotometer for containment analysis, identification tests and quantitative measurements.
According to SSI, the IRSpirit is the smallest and lightest FTIR instrument offering from the firm. In addition to being space-efficient, the device allows access from two sides, and its sample compartment is the widest of any other compact FTIR spectrometer, SSI said. It also accommodates existing Shimadzu and third-party accessories such as ATR and diffuse reflectance, as well as transmission accessories such as a KBr pellet holder and demountable cells.
The IRSpirit comes with an IR Pilot analysis assistant program, an identification test program and a contaminant analysis program, according to the firm. IR Pilot comprises 23 applications that allow analysts to measure samples and print. It also is designed to help operators with minimal analytical knowledge obtain results quickly.
