Incorporating flexible sample handling, lightweight design (22 lb. (10kg)), and industry-leading Thermo Scientific™ OMNIC™ software, the Nicolet iS5 FTIR Spectrometer uses the same field-proven FTIR technology found on other Thermo Scientific Nicolet FTIR spectrometer models.

The Nicolet iS5 FTIR Spectrometer Features:

Durable Design
The Nicolet iS5 FTIR Spectrometer is designed to provide trouble-free operation in the most challenging environments.

  • Field-proven optics encased in a sturdy magnesium-alloy frame
  • Thermally-controlled diode laser provides years of worry-free use
  • User-accessible parts minimize service costs
  • Withstands a wide range of temperature and humidity conditions
  • Vibration, electromagnetic interference (EMI), dust, and tilt were considered in the design
  • Magnesium-alloy construction provides excellent mechanical characteristics for stiffness, thermal properties, vibrational dampening and reduced weight

Easy Maintenance
Replacing the IR source or desiccant in your spectrometer does not require a service call or even opening up the instrument.

Cloud-enabled FTIR spectroscopy 

All Nicolet FTIR spectrometers now allow you to store, share and interpret spectral data anytime, anywhere and on any device. Researchers, lab technicians, educators and their students can all use their Thermo Fisher Connect account, powered by the Thermo Fisher Cloud, to gain easy access to their data with the OMNIC Anywhere App.  

  • Export, view and share data – view your Nicolet .spa spectral files, label spectral peaks, and correct spectral baseline all in the OMNIC Anywhere App on your PC, Apple computer, Android or iOS device
  • Add more storage space – start with 10 GB of storage for free, and then scale up storage as needed for a nominal fee. You can store OMNIC .spa files as well as other files (e.g., report documents, .xls, etc.) to your Thermo Fisher Connect account
  • Secure your data – Thermo Fisher Connect uses Amazon Web Service™, the industry-leading security and data protection cloud-computing platform – so no lost or stolen data
