Axiom Analytical has announced its FCV-150 fibre-optic coupled cuvette sampling system, which can be used in quality control and service laboratories.
The optical transmission sampler is compatible with Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) and dispersive spectrometers operating in the near-infrared (NIR) and UV-Visible spectral regions.
It provides precise temperature control while accommodating sample-containing cuvettes with a wide range of optical path lengths.
The FCV-150 features a sampling region accommodating cuvettes with path lengths from 1mm to 50mm as well as a pre-heating zone.
This combination provides for rapid interchange of up to 15 samples.
The use of fibre-optic coupling facilitates sample analysis in a fume hood or in other locations separated from the spectroscopic analyser.
The company also anticipates that the FCV-150 will find application chemical and pharmaceutical development and modelling for process analytical technology (PAT) applications.
