For rapid testing results to ensure product quality,  you can rely on the Nicolet iS5N FT-NIR spectrometer for the needed answers.  The Nicolet iS5N system offers:

  • Small footprint to minimize use of valuable bench space
  • Spectroscopic performance to deliver consistent results
  • Cost-effective and reliable operation to save money and reduce cost of ownership
  • Sampling flexibility to meet changing needs

 

Sampling Flexibility

The large, open sample compartment of the Nicolet iS5N FT-NIR spectrometer is designed to accommodate a wide range of samples and sampling accessories. The iD1H Heated Transmission accessory is a perfect fit, providing temperature control of vials and cuvettes for precise quantitative analysis. Sharing a common geometry with the Nicolet iS5 FTIR spectrometer, the large sample compartment accommodates many third-party accessories, enabling analysis of a broad range of solid and liquid samples. 

 

Software that Simplifies Analysis

Empowered by OMNIC software, quantitative methods can be built simply using Thermo Scientific™ TQ Analyst and workflows developed in Thermo Scientific™ OMNIC™ Macros\Basic™. These tools are fully integrated in the OMNIC software suite, making method development and deployment straightforward.

Applications: Chemical and Polymer QA/QC, quantitative analysis of production samples, including hydroxyl value of polyols, degree of cure of polysets, simple quantification of binary and ternary mixtures.
