Next Generation FTIR Spectrometer Features Newly Engineered Optical System

publication date: Nov 26, 2018
author/source: Thermo Fisher Scientific


Thermo Scientific Nicolet iS20 FTIR spectrometer enables analytical scientists to experience advanced performance and data analysis.

thermoAnalytical scientists and laboratory managers seeking high-performing, multi-functional instruments with low cost of ownership can now benefit from a new FTIR spectrometer designed to analyze complex samples quickly and deliver fast, accurate results.

The Thermo Scientific Nicolet iS20 FTIR spectrometer, which is an upgrade over the well-established Thermo Scientific Nicolet iS10 FTIR spectrometer, features new LightDrive Optical Engine technology. The redesigned optical system consists of four critical components – an infrared source, interferometer, laser and detector – to deliver exceptional instrument performance and reliability.

The new instrument enables analytical scientists in pharmaceutical, polymer, chemical and forensics labs to identify unknown compounds, verify incoming materials, conduct failure analysis and conduct root cause studies by easily collecting and interpreting FTIR data. It is the only spectrometer on the market that features a touch panel with a multi-colored LED scan bar; the touch panel is designed to assist data collection from even the most challenging samples and help users understand their instrument status at a glance.

"With our newest FTIR spectrometer, busy laboratories facing tight budgets can improve their analytical capabilities while remaining on a familiar and comfortable instrument platform," said Matt Gundlach, product manager, FTIR spectrometers for Thermo Fisher Scientific. "The Nicolet iS20 spectrometer allows scientists to decrease the time from analysis to result, providing an improved user experience over previous-generation Thermo Scientific instruments."

Additional benefits of the Thermo Scientific Nicolet iS20 FTIR spectrometer include:

Cloud-based spectroscopy software with improved functionality that allows students and scientists to analyze their data anytime and anywhere.

The ability to interface easily with external modules, including the Thermo Scientific Nicolet iN5 and Continuµm infrared microscopes.

A 10-year warranty on three critical optical components (laser, interferometer, and source).
