CONDELL PARK, New South Wales, Australia, May 10, 2013 — Next Instruments’ new MultiScan series 4000 FTNIR spectrometer measures a wide range of organic molecules such as amines, hydrocarbons, aromatics, alcohols and organic acids for the food, agriculture, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, chemical, plastics and polymer industries.
Based on a Michelson interferometer, the device has a scan range from 12,500 to 3846 cm−1 at five scans per second with a resolution selectable from 1 to 64 cm−1. The system is designed for both diffuse reflectance and transmission modes. The diffuse reflectance mechanism uses a 105-mm dish that rotates in the light beam to average a larger sample area. Transmission spectra can be collected using standard quartz cuvettes with path lengths of 1, 2, 5, 10 and 20 mm. A fiber optic probe can be mounted into the sample compartment for remote spectra collection.
The S4000 is operated from a touch-screen PC running proprietary software designed for collecting spectra, calibration and analysis, and for library searching and raw materials identification.
