The Nicolet iS10 FT-IR Spectrometer is a complete infrared spectroscopy system for routine analytical needs and features:

System Performance Verification (SPV) features:

  • Consistent, day-to-day performance
  • Hardware and software to test the instrument against the ASTM™ E1421 method by using Schott NG-11 and NIST™ traceable standards, contained in a built-in motorized wheel
  • Programmable settings:
    • Performance verification
    • System suitability
    • Validation standards expiration date
    • Preventative maintenance visits

Ease of Use

  • Easy-to-access, rechargeable desiccants and built-in humidity indicator
  • Integrated scan button and SOP builder for simple user interface, consistency and productivity
  • Simple accessory exchange and experimental conditions setup
  • Standard and high-sensitivity correlation algorithm to fit variability of tested materials
  • Identification of principal ingredients of mixtures through innovative multi-component analysis

Optical System

  • Protects instrument from humidity and solvent vapors
  • Removes any tilt and shear scanning error, automatically tuning the instrument for best throughput and providing analysis speed for real-time survey or screening
  • Guarantees long life system performance with minimum maintenance with diamond-turned, pinned-in-place alignment-free optics
  • Integrates validation wheel with NG-11 and NIST traceable polystyrene film standards, serialized
  • Calibrates frequency

Quality and Low Cost of Ownership – Guaranteed

  • Resistant to chemical vapors and humidity due to fully-protected optics
  • Includes five-year warranty on diamond HATR crystal of the Thermo Scientific™ Smart iTR™ ATR Accessory

Smart Accessory Compatibility
The Nicolet iS10 Spectrometer is compatible with our extensive line of Smart Accessories specialized for quantitative analysis, reaction studies, surface and thin film measurements.

  • Easily exchange accessories and set up experiments
  • Maintain proper experimental conditions and pre-set parameters
  • Automatic performance verification

Configurable Options
External Beam Options

  • External beam from infrared microscopes or external Thermo Scientific™ Nicolet™ iZ™10 FT-IR Module
  • Nicolet iZ10 FT-IR Module can be used with the NIR integrating sphere (InGaAs detector), TGA interface or any other mid-infrared accessories, and can be equipped with a DTGS or MCT detector

Validation Options for FDA, EP, JP Regulated Industries

Themo Scientific™ ValPro™ System Qualification Software:
  • Specifically addresses DQ/IQ/OQ (design, installation, and operational qualification)
  • Proves “objective evidence” to regulators and ISO auditors, showing the system has been properly selected, implemented and verified for use
  • Features digital and electronic signature, 21 CFR Part 11 compliance package

Enhanced Analytical Power and Productivity

  • Measure samples directly through vials using integrated sphere conveniently mounted in the Nicolet iZ10 FT-IR Module
  • Characterize materials quickly and easily using TGA/IR interface installed in the Nicolet iZ10 FT-IR Module
  • Identify unknowns using Thermo Scientific™ OMNIC™ Specta, which includes a 9,000 spectra database and innovative multi-component search routines
