Bruker ALPHA II
Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) is a widely used technique for rapid material identification. With the aid of custom-built reference libraries, it can be used to verify or identify unknown materials in a matter of minutes. It is a non-destructive technique that requires limited to no sample preparation in order to perform analysis. The Bruker ALPHA II has a portable bench top design with interchangeable modules to suit your sampling requirements. The ATR, DRIFT and External Reflection modules give the flexibility to analyse a wide range of sample types. It can be integrated into routine sampling or used for more targeted identification and verification.
By generating custom calibrations, the ATR module can be used to perform semi-quantitative analysis. This can provide valuable real-time information such as semi-quantitative mineralogy to complement chemical analysis on site for rapid decision making.
