Trusted by thousands of users around the world, the Nicolet iS10 FTIR Spectrometer set the benchmark for analytical FTIR instruments. Now, the Nicolet iS20 FTIR Spectrometer resets the standard and pushes the limits of innovation to the next level. With its redesigned optical engine and modern industrial design, the Nicolet iS20 spectrometer creates the perfect combination of the instrument platform FTIR users loved with the improvements they need.

Accurately discern multi-component samples: advanced LightDrive optical engine technology delivers higher spectral resolution (0.25 cm-1) and single-to-noise ratios (50,000:1) to help identify possible contaminants or characterize defects present in small quantities

Improve data reproducibility: state-of-the-art infrared source eliminates hot spot migration, resulting in more consistent spectral data, especially through an attenuated total reflectance (ATR) accessory

Streamline workflow productivity: multi-colored LED touch panel provides visual feedback on instrument status for increased productivity(ready, scan, alert); System Performance Verification (SPV) assures day- to-day results are trusted

Reduce cost of ownership: 10-year warranty on the source, laser and interferometer provides peace of mind; the LightDrive interferometer provides a 5-fold increase in relative lifetime over current interferometer technology, minimizing the need for replacements

Share data anytime, anywhere: upload data to the Thermo Fisher Cloud using this cloud-enabled FTIR spectrometer. Students can upload, analyze and share data away from the instrument using the OMNIC Anywhere App on their PC, Apple Computer, Android, or iOS device. All Thermo Fisher Cloud accounts come with 10 GB of free storage.

Be compliant, be sure: fully-automated validation test routines are available for IQ/OQ (installation and operational qualification), European Pharmacopeia (Ph. Eur.), United States Pharmacopeia (USP), Japanese Pharmacopeia (JP) and China Pharmacopeia (CP); 21 CFR Part 11 compliance and data security packages are available

Easily add new capabilities: spectrometer recognizes Thermo Scientific™ Smart™ Accessories, commercially available third party accessories, TGA-IR module, and external microscopes to adapt to challenging sample needs now and in the future

Find more unknowns: award-winning Thermo Scientific™ OMNIC™ Software is a familiar interface that now comes enhanced with OMNIC Specta software, including a library of >9,000 chemical spectra, so that you can quickly identify unknowns with innovative multi-component search routines
