Portable FT-IR Spectrometers Provide Instant Results

A2 Technologies recently introduced the Mobility Series of FT-IR spectrometers. Developed for use in the field, these portable spectrometers are built to move FT-IR spectroscopy out of the conventional analytical laboratory and closer to the source of the sample. Consisting of three systems, the MLp, the ML and the MLx, the Mobility series has been designed to survive in rugged environments and be operated with little to no training.

These real-time process monitoring tools provide users with actionable information so that decisions can be made on-the-spot, according to A2 Technologies. The Mobility Series FT-IR spectrometers incorporate two new diamond-based sampling systems, one utilizing the principle of internal reflection and the other featuring a completely new type of transmission cell. Between these two systems, a broad range of liquids, solids, oils, gels and pastes can be easily analyzed.

Mobility Series spectrometers offer a breakthrough in FT-IR analysis, extending the capabilities of traditional lab-based analyses by delivering accurate and precise information more efficiently. The portability of these analyzers significantly reduces the need to send samples to a remote laboratory, alleviating the problems associated with sample throughput and minimizing bottlenecks.
