FTIR Sample Handling Techniques

Why is it important to know about different methods of sample handling?

Certain techniques of sample handling are more effective than others for specific sample types. In order to obtain the best quality spectrum from your sample, it is important to know which handling technique works best for your sample type. Acquiring the best spectral data possible will give you more confidence in your results.
