Antaris™ II Viscous Liquid Sampler for Antaris II FT-NIR Analyzer

The Viscous Liquid Sampler for the Thermo Scientific™ Antaris II FT-NIR analyzer makes quick and reproducible quantitative analysis of viscous, non-reflective samples easy. The Viscous Liquid Sampler takes the time and hassle out of sampling high viscosity liquids such as syrups, pastes, and gels by eliminating cuvette, vial or tube filling and cleaning. Sampling of viscous materials for accurate quantitative analysis by transmission or transflectance requires a fixed pathlength. Traditionally pathlength was controlled by filling rigid sample containers which is a tedious, difficult and messy task that results in a slow and expensive analysis. The Viscous Liquid Sampler avoids these problems by allowing samples to be filled into a disposable polymer bag that can be simply thrown away after analysis.

  • Disposable polymer bags for a quick and clean analysis
  • Fixed and reproducible pathlength creates repeatable quantatitve sampling
  • Simple-to-close levers go over the polymer bag to fix the sample pathlength
  • Very short pathlengths allow for reliable quantitative predictions on aqueous or other highly absorbing materials

Two versions:

  • Transflectance—works in conjunction with the Antaris Integrating Sphere
  • Transmission—uses the Antaris Tablet Analyzer Transmission Module for SoftGel Tablets
  • Both versions come with three fixed-pathlength levers to determine the best pathlength for your samples

Available absolute pathlengths:

  • Transmission: 0.5, 1, and 2mm
  • Transflectance: 1, 2, and 4mm

Recommended for:

  • Syrups
  • Pastes
  • Gels
