The Nicolet iS50 FT-IR Spectrometer is the ideal partner in any laboratory dealing with materials analysis of gases, solids, liquids, blends and more. A built-in diamond ATR provides a single point, far-IR to mid-IR sampling station permanently installed and always ready. The OMNIC software platform creates a seamless, synergetic relationship between the optics, sampling stations and answers to tough analytical problems. 

The RaptIR+ Microscope enables users to find their target quickly, collect high resolution visual images, and then generate high spatial resolution IR data quickly and efficiently. The microscope lets you use thick (4cm) and heavy (to 5kg) samples, while also providing rapid scanning (10 spectra/sec) for most samples.
