For sites with only a narrow space available, samples can be measured with the unit positioned horizontally or vertically.
With the widest sample compartment in its class, it easily accommodates Shimadzu and third-party accessories.
Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrophotometer
The IRSpirit-X compact Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrophotometer provides scientists superior expandability and space efficiency in their labs, while attaining the performance expected of standard-sized models. It is an ideal workhorse FTIR spectrophotometer which delivers exceptional reliability in contaminant analysis, identification tests, and quantitative measurements. Applicable fields include raw materials analysis, forensics, environmental, food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, packaging and coatings.
IRSpirit-X is the smallest and lightest FTIR instrument from Shimadzu with a space-saving design that does not compromise on performance or expandability. It has the highest sensitivity in its class of compact instruments, offering FTIR analysis with perfect balance of performance and usability. The sealed interferometer keeps the optics free of moisture to give a high signal-to-noise ratio and help the instrument run for years. The standard-sized sample compartment allows for a wide variety of accessories, both from Shimadzu and third-party manufacturers, including a variety of ATR accessories and FTIR microscopes, to address any analytical need. Many accessories are available with an auto-recognition chip system, allowing automated FTIR testing and set up of parameters. This enhances security options for regulated environments while reducing errors associated with users and the environment. Additionally, highly customizable macro-based workflow software (IRPilot) is included to help beginners and routine users carry out error-free measurements by simply following the prompts.
With the included advanced LabSolutions IR control software, users can get the most out of the instrument in terms of data acquisition, analysis, data integrity and user administration. With the proper software compliance package, the IRSpirit-X and the software setup can provide total data integrity, user administration and audit trails to fully comply with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
