Interspectrum OU has released the Interspec 310 series compact and portable Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometers. The quality control and safety analyzers are suitable for performing standard laboratory measurements and for detecting and identifying hazardous substances in the field. They are sensitive in the spectral region from 400 to 7000 cm–1, with spectral resolution of 2 cm–1. The instruments measure 21 x 22 cm and weigh ~9 kg. They offer wide sampling flexibility, enabling analysis of solid and liquid samples in transmission, attenuated total reflection and reflection modes. They communicate via a USB port and operate at 12 V, 30 W.
