Thermo Fisher Scientific helps scientists meet the challenges they face in the lab or in the field every day. FTIR spectroscopy is a highly diverse molecular spectroscopy technique and chemical analysis method. FTIR spectrometer can be a single-purpose tool or a highly flexible research instrument. With the FTIR configured to use a specific sampling device – transmission or ATR for instance – the spectrometer can provide a wide range of information:
-Most commonly, the identification of an unknown
-Quantitative information, such as additives or contaminants
-Kinetic information through the growth or decay of infrared absorptions
-Or more complex information when coupled with other devices such as Thermogravimetry Analysis (TGA) or Rheometers . Ultimately, FTIR can be a cost-effective answer machine.
