The ALPHA provides an optimal instrument design for almost each sample and therefore is greatly suitable for a large variety of applications.
One of the most important applications of the ALPHA is quality control in various industries. Here the FT-IR spectroscopic analysis is predominantly utilized to verify the identity and specifications of raw materials and products. Additionally the ALPHA allows the identification of unknown samples. This is particularly valuable for an effective failure analysis, e.g. when examining a contamination which caused a product defect.
In criminalistics the possibility to determine unknown substances is applied to identify drugs, explosives and also trace evidence.
The availability of liquid cells and various ATR options for the ALPHA allow performing quantitative analysis with always the optimal measurement conditions for the respective sample type. There are dedicated ALPHA analyzers with internal calibrations available which perform the quantitative analysis of quality-related parameters in wine and the determination of FAME in diesel.
Due to its compact design and its intuitive usability the ALPHA also is predestined to be used for teaching.
Furthermore several mobility options provide for the portable use of the ALPHA. Mounted on a tripod and powered by a battery pack the ALPHA can measure art objects on-site and contactless. The gathered information helps inart conservation.
Best performance for visual inspection and infrared spectral analysis of micro samples with highest comfort in use
Due to the motorization of all moveable components including the ATR-crystal, the LUMOS provides an unmatched high degree of automation. All required changes of hardware settings as well as the complete IR-measurement procedures are performed fully automated – even in ATR-mode.
The intuitive software guides the operator step-by-step through the process of microscopic sample analysis. At each step the user interface only provides the appropriate functions to proceed. The measurement results in a single file including visible images, spectral data and sample information. For evaluation and visualization of the microscopic data the software provides powerful and intuitive Chemical Imaging functionality.
The VERTEX Series is built on a fully upgradeable optics platform that is designed with the utmost flexibility in mind. VERTEX spectrometers share a wide range of features, including the Bruker Artificial Intelligence Network (BRAIN), Automatic Component Recognition (ACR), the Plug & Play Ethernet connection and Automatic Accessory Recognition (AAR).
The new VERTEX FM functionality provides the unique possibility to acquire a complete far and mid IR spectrum from 6000 cm-1 to 80 cm-1(or to 50 cm-1 with the VERTEX 70v vacuum optics bench) in a single stepmeasurement.
