Compact IRSpirit Offers Versatility, Reliability and Ease of Use
28 Oct 2017
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments launches IRSpirit, its smallest and lightest Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectrophotometer.
IRSpirit is designed to provide unmatched functionality in its class of compact instruments, along with exceptional reliability in contaminant analysis, identification tests and quantitative measurements.
The instrument's design allows access from two sides, and its sample compartment is calimed to be the widest of any compact FTIR spectrometer. The sample compartment has been designed for maximum flexibility, accommodating 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.
It comes with an IR Pilot analysis assistant program, an identification test program and a contaminant analysis program. IR Pilot is a package of 23 applications that gives analysts the ability to measure samples or print results with a few mouse clicks. It also allows operators to obtain results quickly by simply selecting the accessory and sample form. The identification test program can be used to analyse samples, complete acceptance inspections and make pre-shipment inspections. The contaminant analysis program accurately identifies contaminates using Shimadzu’s proprietary identification algorithm in combination with spectral libraries.
Includes a sealed interferometer that protects the beam splitter from both air and moisture. It also houses electrical humidity and paper-based indicators, which work in tandem with LabSolutions IR software, to help users easily monitor the status of IRSpirit in high-humidity environments.
LabSolutions IR software offers intuitive operation, high-level administrative functions, secure data management and a variety of data manipulation functions.
'Easy Macro' program allows users to effortlessly create macros for routine tasks. This improves productivity and allows even novice FTIR users to operate the system with ease.
