New Sampling Tools for Turnkey FT-IR Analysis

Bruker Optics has now added more analysis capabilities to the ALPHA product range, with new QuickSnap interchangeable accessory modules that are designed for specific applications such as pharmaceutical raw material ID, trans fatty acid quantification, and polymer ID.

Heated Diamond ATR for Liquid Analysis

The Alpha’s new diamond ATR (Attenuated Total Reflectance) accessory is now available with heated and/or flow-through capabilities for liquid samples. This unit is ideally suited to measurement of aqueous solutions.

Diffuse Reflectance Accessory for Powder Analysis

The new diffuse reflectance module offers a two-position sample holder for fast and reproducible sample and background measurements. It is designed for the analysis of powders and other diffusely reflecting or scattering samples.

Specular Reflectance Accessory for Surface Analysis

The new specular reflectance accessory is suitable for the analysis of thin layers on metal surfaces, and can also be used to characterize bulk samples with a smooth, reflecting surface. The sample is simply placed on the sampling accessory, with no sample preparation required.
