Shimadzu Corporation announces the launch of the IRTracer-100 Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectrophotometer. Combining high speed, sensitivity, and resolution with enhanced expandability and easy-to-use software, the IRTracer-100 quickly and easily obtains high-quality data for samples in such fields as pharmaceuticals, foods, chemicals and electronics.
Analysis of contaminants in or on products is very important for both safety and quality purposes. The size of the contaminants of interest has decreased significantly to 10 µm or less. Analyzing such ultra-small samples requires high-sensitivity FTIR spectrophotometers. In addition to sensitivity, customers require easy-to-use software packages that provide rapid results. Lastly, FTIR systems need to offer rapid scan modes in order to monitor ultra-fast reactions.
Shimadzu developed the IRTracer-100 with these requirements in mind. Featuring improvements in interferometer and detector design, the IRTracer-100 offers high sensitivity with a 60,000:1 SN ratio. This sensitivity combined with the LabSolutions IR Contaminant Analysis Macro enables easier, quicker and more accurate analysis of small samples.
