The IRSpirit Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrophotometer provides scientists with superior expandability and space efficiency in their labs. Its small-space design allows access from two sides, and its sample compartment is the widest of any other compact FTIR spectrometer. In addition to its size, the sample compartment has been designed for maximum flexibility. It accommodates existing accessories such as ATR and diffuse reflectance, as well as transmission accessories such as a KBr pellet holder and demountable cells. The IRSpirit includes a sealed interferometer that protects the beam splitter from both air and moisture. It also houses electrical humidity and paper-based indicators, which work in tandem with LabSolutions IR software, to help users easily monitor the status of IRSpirit in high-humidity environments.
