Full Name: Gemini Analyzer
Debut: March 2015
Field Position: Portability puts its lab-capable functionality anywhere
Skill Set: Gemini delivers lab-quality FTIR and Raman analysis in one highly integrated and portable handheld instrument
• An intuitive interface, including customizable profiles and Scan Assist, to guide the operator through technology selection and sampling
• A motorized anvil that adjusts sample pressure based on user settings and enables Scan Delay for FTIR analysis
• Built-in safety features designed to increase protection from potentially hazardous substances
Regulatory Profile: Data from analyses support multiple QA/QC, safety and compliance regimes
Coach’s Notes: “Ten years ago, this level of analytical rigor and specificity was only possible inside a lab – with instruments that were far from portable,” said Maura Fitzpatrick, senior director, portable analytical instruments, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “Today, we’re redefining portable instrumentation with a two-in-one analyzer that is small enough for field use, giving … personnel a tremendous tactical advantage – helping them minimize time on target and confidently make decisions.”
Scout’s Notes: "Gemini analyzers require minimal training and are easy to use. The innovative design combines FTIR and Raman spectroscopy in a single, lightweight but rugged handheld instrument. For those substances identifiable by Raman and FTIR the Gemini analyzer provides comprehensive analysis, delivering more actionable information to the operator. Switching between analysis techniques is fast and easy using the tactical keypad or touchscreen."
